backup room option - two hosts to same root folder

hi all,

so i have two esxi hosts and both i have installed xsibackup free, but there all backing up to the same datastore, ie

/vmfs/volumes/datastore98/backup/esx01
/vmfs/volumes/datastore98/backup/esx02

but as you can see the root folder is the same

/vmfs/volumes/datastore98/backup/

as you can see i have given each host 3tb worth as the total of my NAS is 8tb

will the below work, or am i doing it wrong

host one

/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/XSIBackup-Free/xsibackup --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/datastore98/backup/esx01 --backup-type=running --date-dir=yes --backup-room=3000 --snapshot=doquiesce

host two

/vmfs/volumes/datastore11/XSIBackup-Free/xsibackup --backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/datastore98/backup/esx02 --backup-type=running --date-dir=yes --backup-room=3000 --snapshot=doquiesce

thanks,
rob

There isn't any reason why it shouldn't work, as both hosts have their own backup folder.

Since you are backing up to different folders, there isn't any possibility to mess it up.
