the man page still mentions the --test-mode=true option in Example 1
but nowhere else in the man page.
I tried to use it in a job configuration to test this job but it had no effect - the job wrote backup data to the backup location.
Was this option removed from xsibackup?
It just works in the command line. It was the original way to test an SMTP server, forget it, it's not useful any more, it's deprecated and will be removed.
Wasn't it also used in the past to be able to test the backup parameters without actually writing the backup?
