Question VMware backup (failing Error 23)
In order to backup VMware virtual machines, is it necessary to set up the FQDN of the ESX server?
I have a ESX 4 standalone server (no administered by a vCenter), but is not added to the DNS. So Im able to added to NBU by Ip address only even when I added the entry to the hosts file.
As a result the VM backup failed with Error 23, Error to opening the snapshot disks using given transport mode.
In the VxMS I found the lines:
SSLVerifyCertAgainstSystemStore: Subject mismatch: hostname. vs IP address
08/15/2011 20:28:12.0140 [TID 0x0001bc54]: g_vdInterfaceLogger:.\libvix.cpp:1693 <VFM_ESWARN> : SSLVerifyCertAgainstSystemStore: The remote host certificate has these problems:
* The host name used for the connection does not match the subject name on the host certificate
* The host certificate chain is not complete.
