rsync not found

I've recently upgraded from free version to XSIBackup PRO, it seems like rsync backups to ESXi target stopped working with the upgrade.

When I run the following, I get rsync not found errors. Can I get help with this please?

[root@esx1:/vmfs/volumes/57be0e52-e4fc38bd-94c4-a0369fafcc38/xsi-dir] ./xsibackup --backup-point="esx2:22:/vmfs/volumes/das1:F" --backup-type=custom --backup-vms="myvm1" --backup-prog=rsync

Re: rsync not found

Have you installed all files in the XSIBACKUP-PRO package?, it looks like you simply overwrote the xsibackup file and skipped the bin dir. You must copy all files and folders as they are to the installation dir.

You can use the automated script available at the registered user's zone
Please, remove any remains from any previous installation, uninstalling the cron file first, to avoid mixing files or duplicating to different paths.

Re: rsync not found

That seems to have worked, thank you.

Interesting though the xsi-dir/bin/xsibackup-rsync (the same path it listed in the error) existed and was executable.
