Please, help me!
When reboot the ESXI host, I need to execute again the command to link the servers (./xsibackup --link-srv=192.168.X.X) .
The file jobs it works so fine, but only after the type the command to link the servers.
Which host?, local or remote?
It shouldn't matter though.
The /etc/ssh/keys-root/authorized_keys is persistent by design in ESXi. Beware of manufacturer ESXi builds, they often contain arbitrary modifications.
I have 2 servers: ESXI1 and ESXI2. In ESXI1 I execute the "./xsibackup --link-srv=IP.ESXI2" command. And then I run the job file on ESXI1 (It copies the VMs to ESXI2).
But after the ESXI1 is restarted, and I'm going to run the job file, it does not work because it says the remote site does not exist.
And I got ESXI ISO directly from vmware site.

Could you share what XSIBackup-Free and ESXi versions you are using?.
XSIBackup uses its own key pair, which is stored in the xsi-dir folder, so you must be wiping them somehow.
- ESXI 6.7
- xsibackup 11.0.1
Please, I need help!
If you need help, please first help yourself and help us to help you. You are being extremely imprecise. XSIBackup does not "say" anything, instead it prints information to the terminal or to a log file.
If you want to refer to some event happening in your system, cut&paste the output that illustrates the fenomenon you want to describe, so that we all know what is the exact event we are discussing.
XSIBackup printing out some message stating that the remote host does not exist has nothing to do with linking servers via a public key, so you are most probably making a wrong assumption and basing all your request for help in that assumption.
If XSIBackup states that the remote host does not exist, then it means it can't reach it, thus you are most probably facing a firewall issue instead of a key exchange one. It's easy to note what's going on by taking a look at the output, as XSIBackup is extremely verbose.
