chained backup not working

When I run chained backup from crontab the next backup in the chain does not get executed.
In the log file I see that job 001 finished and the next job 002 is found but after that the execution just stops without any further log entries:

2019-04-06T16:00:32|  Firewall rule SMTPout-465 closed.
2019-04-06T16:00:32|  Backup finished
2019-04-06T16:00:32|  Executing next chained backup ID(002)

2019-04-06T16:00:32|  Next job:
2019-04-06T16:00:32|   This is a backup job file example. It starts with the path to your
2019-04-06T16:00:32|   xsibackup file and ends with the redirection to the log file. Please
2019-04-06T16:00:32|   do make sure that you keep first and last lines, changing paths to
2019-04-06T16:00:32|   match your working environment.

2019-04-06T16:00:32|  --description="vmkfstools hot backup of s41 VMs" \
2019-04-06T16:00:32|  --exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/backup/xsi-dir/var/logs/xsibackup.log"

When I run job 002 from the command line it works just fine.

Re: chained backup not working

Remove the comments from the job file and leave the commands starting with this line:

"/vmfs/volumes/backup/xsi-dir/xsibackup" \
