Cron issue

I recently updated to ESXi 6.7U2.
Now I cannot start the cron anymore and read about the issue with busybox.
Is this still an issue? Is there any solution yet in the Free Version of XSIBackup?
I also don't have a machine running 6.5 anymore to get the older busybox version.

Thank you very much

Re: Cron issue

Cron should work in ESXi U2, but you must be aware of the fact that Busybox utilities are basic utilities, very basic, extremely basic; ESXi cron lacks even a control script, thus it can be picky and requires you to control wether it's loaded or not, or if two instances are running simultaneosly, etc...
