Remove Date from Backup-Point

I would just like to have one copy of the VM(s) instead of a date format which quickly grows too big.  Before it would just create a folder named after the VM.  I've removed the included date string in the 'backup-point', but its still adding one.  How can this be removed?

Otherwise, all is working fine.

"/vmfs/volumes/5c70130b-f0267759-5ff2-002655ea7e4d/xsi-dir/xsibackup" \
--backup-prog=XSITools:z \
--certify-backup=yes \
--backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/b008dd39-86b67918-0000-000000000000/backups/esx_backup \
--date-dir=no
--backup-type=Custom \
--backup-vms="server" \
--backup-how=Hot \
--remote-xsipath=/vmfs/volumes/5c70130b-f0267759-5ff2-002655ea7e4d/xsi-dir \
--use-smtp=1 \
--mail-from=****@gmail.com \
--mail-to=joe@test.com \
--backup-id=001 \
--description="Backup VMs" \
--override=xsibakfilter \
--on-success="backupId->001" \
--on-error="backupId->001" \
--exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/5c70130b-f0267759-5ff2-002655ea7e4d/xsi-dir/var/logs/xsibackup.log"

Re: Remove Date from Backup-Point

Changed the backup-prog to what's shown below, resolved the problem.

--backup-prog=vmkfstools

Have noticed I need to reboot the host before cron changes truly take affect, even after running the --update-cron command.

Re: Remove Date from Backup-Point

You should not need to if you follow the procedure described in the cron related posts
