    I can backup vm manually form BA GUI or BA CLI, but can not do it from vCenter Plugin side.


    tsm: TSMSERVERF2>q event * *

    Scheduled Start Actual Start Schedule Name Node Name Status

    I can not see any useful information from the actlog.

    It's strange that in actlog there always has the following information:
    08/08/2012 21:12:20 ANR2017I Administrator TSM-VC1-CMD1 issued command: SELECT
    E.*,S.DESCRIPTION FROM EVENTS E, CLIENT_SCHEDULES S WHERE
    S.SCHEDULE_NAME=E.SCHEDULE_NAME AND
    S.DOMAIN_NAME=E.DOMAIN_NAME AND S.ACTION='BACKUP' AND
    S.SUBACTION='VM' AND E.SCHEDULED_START>={'2012-08-05
    21:11:47'} AND E.NODE_NAME IN
    ('TSM-VC1-DC1','TSM-VC1-DC1-DM1') ORDER BY
    E.SCHEDULED_START DESC (SESSION: 684)

    The date and time '2012-08-05 21:11:47' is strange, I don't have that configuration.
    I defined the schedule on 08/08/2012.

    Anybody has the hands-on experience of schedule backup using vCenter plugin, please help me.
    Thanks.


    Jacky.

    I would double check the configuration of the plug-in, check the scheduler is running etc. Can you perform an 'adhoc' backup from the plug in?
