cannot execute binary

Hi,
I have this error

ash: /bin/xsibackup: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

It's a backup from one ESXi to a synology via ssh.

./xsibackup --backup=cbt "VMs(xxx)" root@193.1.1.27:22:/volume1/VM1/TEST

Thank you!

Re: cannot execute binary

Please don't make us guess the rest of the relevant information:

- (c)ESXi version.
- (c)XSIBackup version.
- Full output.

The most likely cause of your error is that whether the file has been corrupted somehow or that you have enabled secure boot in your BIOS.

Re: cannot execute binary

We aren't really getting you or you have some misconception on how the software works.
If you want to backup your VM's you have to run the software in the (c)ESXi host, not the Synology NAS. The NAS knows nothing about your (c)ESXi hosts and VMs.

Re: cannot execute binary

I never told you that I have software installed on NAS...NAS is just remote target for software installed on ESXi...
"It's a backup from one ESXi to a synology via ssh"
I told you it's working on remote debian system but not on synology NAS.
Software is on Esxi 7.0 Update 2 and remote system is a Synology NAS.

Re: cannot execute binary

Run this in the Synology command line and see if you get the same output

/bin/xsibackup --version

See if you get the same message: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error..

The most likely cause for this though is that your Synology doesn't have an x86 compatible CPU.

Re: cannot execute binary

Yes, I belive so, is a 32 bit proc. Must be built for 32 bit proc.

root@SYN2:/bin# ./xsibackup
-ash: ./xsibackup: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

Thank you.
