Warning on VCB Disconnect from VirtualCenter Server (2151)


I'm seeing the following error message when the VMware Consolidated Backup (VCB) command line utility logs off of the VirtualCenter Server:

Got vmdb error -14 (Pipe connection has been broken) when invoking [logout] on [vim.SessionManager:SessionManager]

What's wrong?


This error message is harmless and you can safely ignore it. It appears when you increase the default log level on the VMware Consolidated Backup command line utility.
