Re: Problem backup vm on other host in 10.1.4

Your remote end seems to be another ESXi server, but XSIBackup was not able to determine where is the remote xsi-dir path, that's why you get the text Remote xsi path set to: .

Have you linked both servers?
Have you, by accident, deleted the remote xsi-dir folder?

Run this command in your remote box:

find / -name xsibackup

And see if there's some installation point, or maybe some xsibackup file copied somewhere you didn't expect. Clean up everything: delete any xsibackup, xsidiff and/ or xsibackup-rync files that you may find in the other host and let XSIBacup update the files on its own.

Re: Problem backup vm on other host in 10.1.4

There is a small bug with grep and some ESXi version that we have already solved in v. 10.2.0, nevertheless that bug should not affect you if the needed files are already in place. Please note that you cannot copy the bin folder striping it from the rest of the program files.

Stick to 10.1.0 until we release next version or write to support to get a working preview of 10.2.0
