Summary0000921: VM backup restore: "localvmdk=yes" does not have an effect when specified in fileset
DescriptionI have a VM backup Fileset defined as follows:

FileSet {
  Name = "vm-vcupdmgr47-1"

  Include {
    Options {
         signature = MD5
         Compression = GZIP
    Plugin = "python:module_path=/usr/lib/bareos/plugins:module_name=bareos-fd-vmware:dc=rz47:folder=/"

If I do a restore it does not store it on the fd's local disk but fails:

28-Feb 13:46 bareos47-1-fd JobId 3261: Fatal error: python-fd: Error VM vcupdmgr47-1 must be poweredOff for restore, but is poweredOn

Only if I specify python:localvmdk=yes as Plugin Option during the restore the restore succeeds and stores the VMDK on the FD's local disk:

Select parameter to modify (1-14): 14
Please enter Plugin Options string: python:localvmdk=yes

Thanks for reporting this. localvmdk was never meant to be used in the fileset.
This was also reported for a version that is outdated meanwhile, so we will close it now.
Feel free to verify if this works in the current version or not. If not and you still think that
it is a bug, please report it again and then please also describe the use case.
