When I use option --backup-room in combination with --backup-prog=vmkfstools
it does not report the free space and also does not delete old backups.
The report always says:
The backup room has been limited to 2500 Gb.
Available room in device /vmfs/volumes/backup/s41/2019KW15vmkfstools before backup: 2500 Gb.
Available space in device /vmfs/volumes/backup/s41/2019KW15vmkfstools after backup: 2500 Gb.
It is always reporting the space given as --backup-room parameter but not the actual free space.
When using --backup-prog=xsitools instead the free space is reported correctly.
The man page says:
Once this limit is reached the eldest backup folders with XSIBackup folder mask will be deleted.
But what is the "XSIBackup folder mask" ? The man page doesn't explain this.
