arithmetic syntax error

VMware ESXi 6.5.0 build-8294253
XSIBackup version 1.5.1.10

When executing the following command :

./xsibackup --replica=cbt "VMs(vmname)" "root@192.168.1.1:22:/vmdks/replicas/$(( $(date +%j) % 5 ))"

I'm getting this error :

-sh: arithmetic syntax error

192.168.1.1 is running Rocky Linux 8.5

Thanks,
Dale

Re: arithmetic syntax error

Some date binaries in some (c)ESXi builds lack the %j (Julian day) modifier (why is a conumdrum to us). Try this instead:

./xsibackup --replica=cbt "VMs(vmname)" "root@192.168.1.1:22:/vmdks/replicas/$(( $(date +%s)/86400%5 ))"
