XSIBackup-Free Install Issues

I've just installed XSIBackup-Free and it all appeared to install without errors but when I run esxi-host# ./xsibackup  as per the instructions I get the following error:
[root@localhost:/vmfs/volumes/59f5ebe9-e9eba34c-7976-40a8f068ba5d/xsi-dir] esxi-host# ./xsibackup
-sh: esxi-host#: not found

The log from installation shows :
[root@localhost:~] cd /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir 2>/dev/null || mkdir /vmf
s/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir && \

Re: XSIBackup-Free Install Issues

You are pasting something that does not make sense (esxi-host#).

1 - CD to your installation dir and run the program from that folder

cd /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir

2 - Or invoke execution through an absolute path to the program


Those are the two main ways to execute something in a *NIX environment.
