Hi,

I installed the software and the backup procedure works great and was easy to setup for my ESXi 5.

My problem is that when I try to restore I get an error. " The device or operation specified at index '2' is not supported for the current virtual machine version 'vmx-04'. A minimum version of 'vmx-06' is required for this operation to succeed."

I assume that if I restored on an esxi4 server that I will have no issues.

Is there a way to save for Virtual Machione Hardware version 6 or 7 (native for esxi 4) instead of vmx-04 when creating the backup ?

thanks for your help in advance!

I found a list of Virtual hardware versions:

archon99,

The issue you are running into is with VMware Converter Standalone 4.0.1 not being compatible with ESXi 5. Install VMware Converter Standalone 5 and you should not have any issues with ESX(i) 4 or 5 hosts.

Sorry for the confusion. We have also updated the vBackup system requirements documentation to reflect this information.

Note: The standard "local" installation of VMware Converter Standalone will work just fine with vBackup 0.2.2. However, if you go ahead and run the "client-server" installation (minus Converter agent) you will be setup and ready for vBackup 0.2.3 which should release real soon.

Thank you,

The vBackup Team
