CLVMKFS1 error: Failed to clone disk: File too large (1769481)(SOLVED)

I have XSIBackup FREE installed on an ESXi 6.5 System. Now i want take a backup to a NAS Storage. In the NAS Storage, there is a 4 TB HDD with 3.4 TB available space. The virtual disk from the VM has a space from 25 GB.
When i start the Backup, it says:

Could not get available backup room in backup datastore
Needed room: 0 Gb.
Sparse size: 0 Gb.
Available room: 0 Gb.

At the end of the backup it says:

[VS001] CLVMKFS1 error: Failed to clone disk: File too large (1769481).

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

LG
Pascal

Maybe that disk was created with an older version of ESXi and has not yet been cloned to a more recent format?
It could also be corrupt. Clone it manually using vmkfstools and reattach it to the VM.

vmkfstools -i olddisk.vmdk newdisk.vmdk -d thin

OK thanks for the help.
I think I found the problem.
The problem with the error:

[VS001] CLVMKFS1 error: Failed to clone disk: File too large (1769481).

was that the host server allowed incoming communication with SSH but not outgoing.
With the problem with the error:

Could not get available backup room in backup datastore
Needed room: 0 Gb.
Sparse size: 0 Gb.
Available room: 0 Gb.

was that I put a "/" in front of the backup point, so:

backup-point=/ip:port:/path/to/backup

correct would be:

backup-point=ip:port:/path/to/backup

Thanks 4 ur help.

That explains it all.
Please post your jobs and relevant data: .vmx file, file listings, otherwise we are just guessing.
