Remote backup freezing

I have two esxi servers with centralized remote backup. The servers: vmware1 (ip 10.0.0.5, vmware v6) and vmware2 (ip 10.0.0.6, vmware 6,5).
The backup cron job starting from vmware2, but latest xsibackup pro version always freezing in the below state. With 10.0.3 version this method working perfectly.
Any suggestion ?

Re: Remote backup freezing

You have removed the output header, so we don't know which version you're using, maybe 10.0.4?
We'll check this in case it's a bug, in any case, have you tried copying the xsibackup-rsync binary to the remote's machine dir

/vmfs/volumes/595249eb-79426204-9f2d-c81f66c63f4b/xsi-dir/bin/xsibackup-rsync
