XSIBackup DC Manual Errors?

In the Manual of XSIBackup DC you find at page 20 how to use Option --block-size

When I uses the Option as described (for example --block-size=20M) XSIBackup stopped with error

Error code 6 at file dedup-in.c, line 6
Error description: you can only use block sizes of 1M, 10M, 20M and 50M: 20

I checked it twice: config entry is 20M
When you use
--block-size=20971520
than it works.

Why does it not work as described and mentioned in Errormessage?

If you cut & paste text from the manual you will most probably be suffering from character substitution. Maybe some white space character you pasted to your shell is not what you think it is. Write the argument manually.

I did not use copy and paste.
I manually wrote --block-size=20M.
In my Version this does not work!!

Re: XSIBackup DC Manual Errors?

We don't know what version your ESXi system is, we don't know what version of XSIBackup-DC you are using, we basically know nothing.
Please provide all the details. If you still suffer from the same issue, contact support to debug your scenario.
