Hello all,

I am trying out Archiware Pure but I receive an error within about 20 secs of trying to back up a VM. It seems like Archiware is trying to open the VMDK of the VM using VIX and then the connection is refused:

 

Log Entries:

[VM].vmdk: open using VIX...
[VM].vmdk: The server refused connection

In the end it only backs up the Nvram and mentions:

none of the disks were processed

Anybody have an idea what could be the cause of this?

Thanks!

Wesley

Hi.

I would start by checking VMDK logs (vixDiskLib-xxxx.log) in the /tmp folder to try and find the exact reason for VMware refusing the connection. Searching for this error message gives many very different results so it is hard to guess the real cause without logs.

Actually I was not able to look after it the last couple of days and I didn't configure e-mail notifications yet. Was just digging through the advised logfiled and couldn't find an issue. See now that my automatic back-ups started working from the night of the 10th of august....At least you provided me some knowledge where to look to for future issues, thanks!
