backupConfig: not found when running cron job

Hello,

I have set up a cron job. The job runs and I received an email with the following in the subject: "✖ XSIBACKUP errors detected in backup job!!". There are no details in the email about the error and the backups appear have been created as expected.

I checked for errors by running the following:

cat xsibackup-cron.log | grep error

This was returned:

Tip: no chained backups scheduled, set --on-success and/or --on-error arguments to chain a backup

This is just a tip and not an error, but the word error is included in the text.

I checked the .ERR file and this is what's there:

/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/xsibackup: line 1: backupConfig: not found
<span class=errr>[ Thu Mar 15 20:45:34 UTC 2018 ] <b>ERROR</b> (BAKESXCF), details Error: backing the ESXi host config to /vmfs/volumes/backups, details: </span><br />

I'm not sure what backupConfig is or how to resolve this issue and would appreciate some help with this.

I am using XSIBACKUP-FREE 10.3.0 on VMware ESXi 6.0.0 build-3620759.

Regards,
Tim

Re: backupConfig: not found when running cron job

It's a false positive related to the host's config backup, which was removed from the free version in v. 10.3.0
We will fix this issue in next release.

Re: backupConfig: not found when running cron job

You can buy it in the product page: https://33hops.com/xsibackup-pro-vmware … ackup.html
Upgrading is fairly easy, just keep your RSA keys and /conf files. You have a detailed procedure in the README.txt file of the Pro version, it's a 1 min. operation.
