Re: backup vmware

How can I do the backup???


I'm going to guess that cpio is your problem.  You might want to add a
"-H newc" to your cpio command line.  Otherwise use tar as I believe it
will handle files over 2GB.

Alternatively, you can tell vmware to split its disks into two gig
chunks.  Thats a image creation option though, so it may not help you
here.

Also be sure your vmware clients are shut down for the duration of the copy. The disk images would be corrupted if they changed during the copy.
