cannot start Rsync, XSIDiff starts

I have a license XSIBackup-Pro

There is a task for which XSIDiff is not suitable
here is my config

"/vmfs/volumes/ESXI1_FILE/XSIBackup-Pro/xsibackup" \
--backup-prog=Rsync \
--certify-backup=yes \
--backup-point="/vmfs/volumes/ESXI2_Backup/Backup/ESXI1" \
--remote-xsipath=/vmfs/volumes/ESXI2_FILE/XSIBackup-Pro \
--backup-type=running \
--date-dir=yes \
--del-dirs=+15d \

but I get the message:
Info: first Rsync transfer is assumed by XSIDiff, as it is faster and will preserve VMFS data sparseness

I will also add that when loading it all the same writes:

Writing to file /vmfs/volumes/ESXI2_Backup/,,,,,,,,,
(c)XSIDiff 0.28% done

how to force rsync work?
