Last VM is not getting backuped


I have an issue with XSIBackup FREE 11.0.1
If I configure four VMs (--backup-vms="VM1,VM2,VM3,VM4") to be backed up, the last VM will not be backed up.

A workaround is to add an additional "," at the end of the "backup-vms" list. (--backup-vms="VM1,VM2,VM3,VM4,")

"/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/xsibackup" \
--backup-point=/vmfs/volumes/datastore2/xsibackups \
--date-dir=yes \
--backup-type=custom \
--backup-vms="VM1,VM2,VM3,VM4" \
--mail-from=<email-from> \
--mail-to=<email-to> \
--smtp-srv=<mail-server> \
--smtp-port=25 \
--smtp-auth=plain \
--smtp-sec=TLS \
--smtp-usr=<mail-user> \
--smtp-pwd=<mail-pass> \
--backup-room=1500 \
--smart-info=yes \
--subject="ESXi Backup Report: Daily 1" \
--description="ESXi Backup Daily 1" \
--backup-id=Daily1 \
--exec=yes >> "/vmfs/volumes/datastore1/xsi-dir/var/logs/xsibackup.log"

Does anyone else have the same issue?
I'm running XSIBackup Free 11.0.1 on VMWare ESXi 6.7

Best Regards,

Re: Last VM is not getting backuped

This is the first news about such issue. I'm afraid it must be something specific to your environment, otherwise we would know by now.

Take on account that VMs can't have any name, just letters, numbers, spaces, single hyphens and underscore characters are supported. If you include a double hyphen, XSIBackup might understand it as an argument separator per instance.
