Problem with parameter --backup-prog=Vmkfstools

I am using the following job file:

"/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/XSIBackup-Free" \
--backup-prog=Vmkfstools \
--backup-point="/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/backup/$( date +%d%m%y )" \
--backup-type=custom \
--backup-vms="domoticz,omv" \
--backup-how=hot \
--exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/XSIBackup-Free/var/logs/xsibackup.log"

"/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/XSIBackup-Free" \
--backup-prog=Vmkfstools \
--backup-point="/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/backup/$( date +%d%m%y )" \
--backup-type=custom \
--backup-vms="pfsense" \
--backup-how=cold \
--exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/XSIBackup-Free/var/logs/xsibackup.log"

But I get error:
:-( Only --backup-prog=Vmkfstools is supported in (c)VMWare (c)ESXI 7 and above.

VMware Version: HPE Customized Image ESXi 7.0.0 version 700.0.0.10.5.5
XSIBACKUP-FREE: 11.2.9


Please help,

Best Regards
Robert

Re: Problem with parameter --backup-prog=Vmkfstools

As the changelog says...

Compatible with ESXi 7.0.0. If you run ESXi 6.7 or below you should use ©XSIBackup-DC 1.1.1.2
An installer has been added to the downloadable package
Some routines have been improved

Re: Problem with parameter --backup-prog=Vmkfstools

(c)XSIBackup-Pro is not compatible with (c)ESXi 7.0.0. This is due to some drastic changes that have been introduced in ESXi 7 from part of VMWare. We will reorganize our software offer this summer to use the DC line of development, which is far more advanced and this way we will offer compatibility with ESXi 7 on Free, Pro and DC

Re: Problem with parameter --backup-prog=Vmkfstools

Works fine with XSIBACKUP-FREE: 11.2.8, you only need to add "-a" $ {ESX_VERSION} "! =" 7.0.0 "]" in the code.
I tested this backup, it works fine for me.
