My machine is a Windows XP Pro with UNIX for Windows v3.5 I recently installed GhettoVCB have it backing up my VMs to my NFS share. I can see the share from Windows and can see all the files. All of the files are accessable except the main file *.vmdk. When I open properties for the file it shows ‘File Attributes’ set as: Owner R & W, all others no access Owner ID: 99, Group ID: 100 My goal is to have the backup system run each night and have a windows script (from my machine) compress the file for archiving and perhaps backup offsite. My thoughts are two possiblities: 1) change the permissions from the console in the ESX server 2) Setup windows to think I am UID 99, GID 100 I would prefer #2, but cannot locate any information on how I can do this. Thanks, Hobie Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
