    Hi All,

    I’m having problem in backing up a Live/online VM without any iSCSI SAN mapped on it
    How does one perform the multiple ESXi 4.0 VM backup using the VCB framework v1.5 + VCenter Server 4.0 and BE 12.5 in one server ?

    Backup Server Spec (All in one server):

    1. Windows Server 2003 Std R2 SP2
    2. SQL Server 2005 Std. SP3
    3. VCenter Server 4.0
    4. VCB Framework 1.5
    5. Backup Exec 12.5 (patched to the latest).
    6. Converter Stand Alone 4.0.1 -> only for the restore.

    when i do the backup it failed with the following Error: (See the attached code)

    [/CODE]

    and then I come up with the following URL to diagnose the problem:

    [url]http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/321740.htm[/url]
    [url]http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=1009073[/url]
    [url]http://www.vmware.com/support/vsphere4/doc/vsp_vcb_15_u1_rel_notes.html[/url] –> even in the release notes the workaround is to not use VSS under the section “VCB Fails to Create Snapshot”

    If I remove the VSS support this is not a good way to backup those VM as they’re running SQL Server 2005 and Java Application server.

    Any idea in backing up these VM please ?[CODE]
