Compatible Borg version

Trying to restore a VM:

/vmfs/volumes/backup/xsi-dir/xsibackup --restore-vms=10.0.0.200:22:/esxi

I get an error:

That looks like a Borg repository
Could not find a compatible Borg version at 10.0.0.200:22

The actual Borg version at 10.0.0.200 host is

$ borg -V
borg 1.1.5

Which Borg version is compatible with XSIBACKUP-PRO 11.2.10 ?

Re: Compatible Borg version

We abandoned Borg compatibility long ago, last compatible version was 1.1.1.
The reason is that XSIBackup would only pipe data to Borg, that is all data without zero awareness. This has to do with the imposibility to run a Borg client on ESXi. No differential process would take place in the client side. We developed (c)XSITools to overcome this problem, thus by using (c)XSITools you are truly sending just differential data in non empty areas to the deduplicated repository, making (c)XSITools be much, much faster than what you would expect from storing data to a Borg server.
