For People with Problems Backing up by VM Name

Jul 18, 2014 at 3:56 PM
The help display and online references were fuzzy for how to backup a single VM by name. I was fine backing up all VMs. Everything pointed to using the -n or --name switch followed by your server name. Well, that didn't work so I tried --list preceding the --name thinking it needed some kind of list function that it could pull the name from. It would just throw a "--Output is a mandatory value". It turns out you use the -l or --list for what you would think the name switch would be. Use what's below to help you.

hvbackup.exe -l "YourServerName" -o "C:\yourbackupfolder"

or

hvbackup.exe --list "YourServerName" --output "C:\yourbackupfolder"
