xsibackup not backing up vmdk files

I´m a new user to xsibackup-dc. Bought a license but am not able to create backups.

NFS share connected to ESXI host.

./xsibackup --backup "VMs(CheckMK)" /vmfs/volumes/Backup/Office/

is producing the following output:

As you can see it´s skipping the data files. This backup is worthless without data files. What does "open excluded" and "skipped excluded" mean?

I thought I would be able to create backups from machines while they are running.

What am I doing wrong?

Best regards


Edit:

just read in another thread that ESXI 7.0 is not supported, yet. Any roadmap for this? Is it possible to test a pre-release version?

All my hosts run ESXI 7.0 so my xsibackup-dc license is quite useless at the moment.

Re: xsibackup not backing up vmdk files

Version 1.1.1.2 is not compatible with ESXi 7.0.0. We are finishing tests to 1.3.0.0 which is indeed compatible with ESXi 7.0.0. Contact support to get a copy.
