Backing UP VMware ESXi VMs - Solution

Hi all,

as I am using BackupPC now for years to back up my data I decided I want
to back up some of my VMs as image file backup.

Due to the design of BackupPC it is no good idea to transfer the large
vmdk file every time when just 1% of the disk has changed.

Having got some ideas from this mailing list I developed my own short
shell script to be able to backup my VMs in an (more or less) efficient way.
It creates a snapshot of the VM, copies, splits and compresses the vmdk
files to a temp folder which is then backed up together with the other
remaining files of the VM.

If you are interested you can download the small package from
http://www.knebb.de/files/backup_esxi_vms.tar.gz (approx. 900k)
Besides of the script it contains rsync and split as statically linked
binaries and a README which explains how it works and what it can not
handle! Please read!

As this script works currently well for my needs I will not add
additional functionalities. If your want to improve, please send me a
patch file and I will update the script.

Greetings

Christian

Fwd: Re: Execute script before backup


I'll agree with Les here. I think there should be a way to do this
either through PingCmd or through DumpPreUserCmd.  My current set up (48
mostly windows clients) has customized scripts for both of these.
PingCmd sends wake on lan packets and waits several minutes to see if
the host responds. DumpPreUserCmd modifies an html file that the client
polls every 5 minutes. When the client reads a start signal in the html
file it creates a shadow copy and launches rsync daemon on it. While
that is going on DumpPreUserCmd is waiting and polling for up to 20
minutes to see if the client launches the rsync daemon. DumpPostUserCmd
modifies the html back to the stop state. When the client sees that it
stops the rsync daemon and deletes the shadow copy.

The idea is that you can achieve pretty sophisticated behaviour with
PingCmd, DumpPreUserCmd and DumpPostUserCmd. I'd think you could stand
up the vpn with the pre command and tear it down with the post command.

The way to start is to write your scripts and test them by hand until
they are doing what you want. Then configure backuppc to use them either
as PingCmd or DumpPreUserCmd and DumpPostUserCmd. You communicate
success or failure of your script to backuppc through the exit status.
exit 0 from PingCmd means the host is reachable on the network (ie the
"ping" worked). exit 0 from DumpPreUserCmd causes backuppc to start the
dump, provided that $Conf{UserCmdCheckStatus} = 1;

Think of it as an opportunity to prove your scripting skills and have fun!

Execute script before backup


Hi there,

I'm trying to figure out how to execute some actions, right before
doing a backup. What I want to do is to backup a remote host (not in
the LAN) and to achieve so I have a VPN tunnel set up. My ideal
scenario would be: 1) before anything else connect to the tunnel, 2)
then backup the host, 3) after successful backup close the tunnel.

What I try so far:
* Play with $Conf{DumpPreUserCmd}. As I have read in the
documentation, this parameter has been thought to execute some
commands after I reach the host, and before doing the dump, so not
applicable to my scenario.
* Play with $Conf{RsyncClientCmd}. Before 'ssh-ing' anything I have
tried to set up the VPN tunnel, but again there is a host resolution
command before this, and obviously it fails.

Before going any deeper I would like to know if I'm missing a
proper/official way to achieve what I want. Any suggestion? :)

Cheers, Ibon.

How to delete backups

Hi,

How do you delete backups? I've been messing around with lots of different hosts trying to work out how to use the software and I want to get rid of all the unwanted backups. 

My bin has the following scripts

BackupPC               BackupPC_fixupBackupSummary  BackupPC_tarCreate
BackupPC_archive       BackupPC_link                BackupPC_tarExtract
BackupPC_archiveHost   BackupPC_nightly             BackupPC_tarPCCopy
BackupPC_archiveStart  BackupPC_restore             BackupPC_trashClean
BackupPC_attribPrint   BackupPC_sendEmail           BackupPC_zcat
BackupPC_dump          BackupPC_serverMesg          BackupPC_zipCreate

There is no BackupPC_delete whch I have seen mentioned in the archive. I'm using version 3.2.1 on Ubuntu 14.04

SOLVED: rsync transfer sometimes stalled

On my system, I have occasionally observed stalled rsync transfers with BackupPC. Typically both the
rsync sender and the BackupPC rsync receiver are waiting in select() until a timeout occurs and the backup
is aborted.

I traced this down and filed a bug on htttps://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=100810. I also
attached a patch for File::RsyncP there which fixes the problem for me.

I am assuming that this may have caused similar problems for other users. Googling for "BackupPC rsync
stall" at least showed a few similar cases, although most of them were quite old.

One more old backup question

I have been archiving and deleting old backups (using a combination of BackupPC_deleteBackup and BackupPC_nightly. Things have gond pretty well, except that one host now only has backup 0 from yesterday, and none of the archived ones are listed in the wui. That's fine, since the machine does not change that radically...However, the old backup directories are still on-disk. So is there either a) a way to regenerate the backups file in /var/backuppc/pc/<hostname>? Or is it safe just to rm -rf the directories besides 0 from there?

Thanks,
--b

Archiving older backups

I have a number of backups that are on my backuppc machine, and now that I have a NAS in place, I figured I would archive off the oldest backups, since the /var/lib/backuppc partition filled up on the backup machine.

Is there a way to archive a specific backup so that I can back up some of the older fulls? I looked in the docs, and found that there is no way to specify a specific backup, even from the command line.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
--b

host backup pool sizes

I just noticed that my pool has doubled in size in the past week or so, 
and for the life of me I don't know what changed or what I changed that 
would cause the jump in size.

I've poked around some but haven't been able to determine which host or 
hosts have caused the increase.

Does anyone have a script or know of a method whereby I can determine 
the size of each hosts backups in the pool to see if I can narrow down 
what change might have cause this increase?

Thanks
Pete

Why "Child is aborting"?

Hi all,

I am trying to troubleshoot why I can not back up my virtual machines running on VMware ESXi 5.5.

This is what I get when I run the ./BackupPC_dump -f -v esxi.evs-nb.de on command line:

mssql-Snapshot29.vmsn: blk=, newData=32768, rxMatchBlk=, rxMatchNext=0

I have compiled rsync-static for ESXi which is running fine so far. I have a DumpPreShareCmd which starts a script on the ESXi to create a snapshot. I can verify the snapshot gets created. Transfer starts but after I while I am getting the above error.  rsync transfer method.

Anyone having an idea how to troubleshoot further or what to monitor?
