Rsync instead of XSITools is used by XSIBACKUP-PRO

Hi!

I am a new user of XSIBACKUP-PRO. I created a backup job using the GUI and choose XSITools as the backup-prog. When I start the job and watch the backup job activity I see some lines indicating that not XSITools but rsync is used. Is this the expected behaviour?

Rsync is used to send the auxiliary files, that doesn't make any difference in speed, the bulk of the data is in the -flat.vmdk files.
In your case you are using (c)XSITools, which is our propietary deduplication engine, and it looks like you are using it over IP to backup to a remote host. In case of (c)XSItools, the binary transfer agent is dd over SSH, so the data is optionally compressed and directly tunnelled.
