I'm having the same issue on ESX 7.0.2 which is ok on your compatibility list. XSI was working fine on 2 hosts, and the jobs have all been throwing the same error for the past 3 days. Any hints as to what the issue could be? ls -la /dev/disks/ returns the following:
Thanks for your help
Anybody coming here because of the error:

It is due to (c)XSIBackup not being compatible with local datastore names containing spaces. We have released a fix in 18.104.22.168, just download and upgrade your installation.
Still, we encourage you to keep your datastore names short, concise and free of any special character.
