vmdk not excluded

my related options in xsibackup-cron is like below

--backup-type=custom --backup-vms="MTA,MTA2,MAIL1,MAIL2!MAIL1_10.vmdk;MAIL1_11.vmdk;MAIL2_1.vmdk;MAIL2_2.vmdk"

for MAIL1, MAIL_10.vmdk & MAIL1_11.vmdk is not excluded during backup

Did I wrote those options wrongly?

Re: vmdk not excluded

As per your backup command:

--backup-vms="MTA,MTA2,MAIL1,MAIL2!MAIL1_10.vmdk;MAIL1_11.vmdk;MAIL2_1.vmdk;MAIL2_2.vmdk"

You are excluding those disks for the VM MAIL2, not for MAIL1
You are mixing disks apparently pertaining to MAIL1 and MAIL2 in the exclussion string

Re: vmdk not excluded

so I should do it like this?:

--backup-vms="MTA,MTA2,MAIL1!MAIL1_10.vmdk;MAIL1_11.vmdk,MAIL2!MAIL2_1.vmdk;MAIL2_2.vmdk"
