Listing all virtual machines, No virtual machine found


#1

Hi all,
I have just finished setting up the demo and run the benchmark.
Then tried to make a backup but only get this error!

Listing all virtual machines
No virtual machine found

I have some 16 VM’s on the computer so why can vertical not see them?
Any help greatly appreciated.

regards
Tony

Can you post here the result of vim-cmd vmsvc/getallvms? Vertical Backup parses this output to get all vms.

How did you run the backup command? If the name of a virtual machine has spaces in it, then you need to run it this way:

./vertical backup "01 webby"
