XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.4 {VM-Name}_XSIREP causes {VM-Name} to be backed up

Hi,

When using XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.4 to back up a VM including the postfix _XSIREP in its name, like "server_XSIREP", the corresponding VM without the _XSIREP postfix, i.e. "server", was backed up instead. The following options were used:

--backup \
"VMs(server_XSIREP)" \

Then I repeated the test by adding another option:

--backup \
"VMs(server_XSIREP)" \
--options=O \

Again, the VM "server" was backed up, and not, as specified, server_XSIREP.

This seems to be a severe bug.

Re: XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.4 {VM-Name}_XSIREP causes {VM-Name} to be backed up

From another post I learned that XSIBackup-DC 1.5.1.4 should correctly backup a _XSIREP VM when selecting the VM to be backed up via a VM selection mask. However, my scenario is different, as I do not use a selection mask for selecting the VMs to be backed up, but XSIBackup-DC in a script by specifying all options and parameters in text form.  Consequently, I explicitly specify "server_XSIREP".

What should I debug, as specifying "server_XSIREP" as VM to be backed up with XSIBackuo-DC 1.5.1.4, either with or without --options=O, causes VM "server" to be backed up instead, while VM "server_XSIREP" remains untouched.  This is weird.  I have repeated this backup already three times, always the same negative result.
