XSIBackup-DC No CBT replica with excluded disks CTK disabled


CBT replication works fine when all disks assigned to the VM have CTK enabled.

In my setup, I have a regular disk with CTK enabled and an independent disk that is excluded from replication with CTK disabled.

This is an excerpt of the vmx file:

ctkEnabled = "TRUE"
scsi0:0.ctkEnabled = "TRUE"
scsi0:1.ctkEnabled = "FALSE"

I started the VM with these settings and verified that the ctk file has been created.

Nevertheless, when executing XISBackup-DC in this scenario, I receive the following error:

2021-11-28T13:39:34 | Error code 149 at file esxi.c, line 149 | Error description: no matching CTK entry for disk: scsi0:0.fileName
/!\ There aren't any CTK files (-1), run --enable-cbt first, ignoring CBT flag

My other VMs where I have all disks with CTK enabled work fine with CBT replication. Nevertheless, I consider this scenario here as a bug, as the CTK disabled disk is excluded from backup so that there should be no error message.

Would it be feasible to reduce the check whether CTK is enabled to those disks that are actually replicated or backed up?

Best regards,

There's the --options=O flag to override filtering out _XSIREP VMs
