Summary0001284: The message goes well but no Backup will be performed
DescriptionGood afternoon,

First of all a greeting to all the members of this Bareos forum that I consider a very complete tool.

I am new in this world of Bareos, I am using it more than everything for the Backup of files, but now I want to do the Backups of the VMware VMs, I have read the documentation and carry out the steps indicated; but when I run the backup the message goes all right but it doesn't make any backup. And CBT is enabled with

I don't know if I am missing something in the configuration or did something wrong.

This is the message:
