-sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted

after updating ESXi, started receiving this error.
"] ./xsibackup --use-smtp=Y --backup-point="/vmfs/volumes/5a3fea17-5bbba6e6-476e-d05099c82759" --backup-how=warm --backup-type=all --date-dir=yes --backup-prog=OneDiff --mail-to=EMAIL --smart-info=yes --check-repo=yes --backup-how
--backup-prog=onediff:z -certify-backup=sha1
-sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted

downloaded and installed latest version, and still have the same issue.

ideas?

Re: -sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted

1 - --use-smtp=Y is wrong, you can't parse a letter to --use-smtp, it only allows integers.
2 - Do not use physical paths as the backup point, but the human readable hardlinkls, i.e.: --backup-point="/vmfs/volumes/backup"
3 - Do not use compression with OneDiff (--backup-prog=onediff:z), 99% of the times it will be counterproductive.
4 - You have duplicated the --backup-prog argument.
5 - You are missing a hyphen in the -certify-backup=sha1 argument.
6 - You do not need --certify-backup=sha1, as SHA1 is default, so just use --certify-backup=yes
