Bad blocks and failed restore?

Using XSIBACKUP-PRO v11.1.9 on ESXi server v5.1.0, here is my command:

"/vmfs/volumes/Server_DS1/xsi-dir/xsibackup" \
--backup-prog=XSITools:z \
--certify-backup=yes \
--backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/NAS_EX4100/vm_backup/EMTRAC-VRH/xsibackup/$( date +%Y%m%d'000' ) \
--backup-room=2000 \
--backup-type=custom \
--backup-vms="WinServer2008x64 Copy7 AUGUSTA" \
--backup-how=Hot \
--remote-xsipath=/vmfs/volumes/Server_DS1/xsi-dir

During this backup, had a large number of bad blocks detected like this:

Please wait while the XSITools repository hash tables are checked...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sh: Bad block detected: 0077d9807f9315ec8f951c28413f27b020249378
Bad block detected: 0090f5002a554bac7f10888a4f1511a1688d95f4
Bad block detected: 00a82eaf2f518357191f548b8de8086ef4d7b10a
Bad block detected: 00fdb76aba2be9e3fa2c42b367049258a2ecc12d
...


Then, when I tried to restore this VM, it stopped after a few seconds, with "sh: bad number" and would not restore the VM:

Restoring disk /vmfs/volumes/03cf4264-f23eeb43/vm_backup/EMTRAC-VRH/xsibackup/20181214000000/20181214173302/WinServer2008x64 Copy7 AUGUSTA/WinServer2008x64-flat.vmdk...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
sh: bad number
sh: bad number
sh: bad number
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Restore completed


Why is this?  The backup runs ok using "vmkfstools", but I get problems using "xsitools".  Is it the spaces in the vm name?

Thanks!

Re: Bad blocks and failed restore?

The spaces in the VM name are not a concern. There's a compatibility issue of XSITools with that version (5.1.0) of ESXi due to differences in how OpenSSL outputs information, you will be able to use any other backup program though.
