permissions?

HI there

I seem to have a few permissions everytime I try to run anything

[root@15000:/vmfs/volumes/5d9e0b20-a5b36164-5afe-ecf4bbed095c/xsibackup] ./xsibackup --request-key
sh: /vmfs/volumes/5d9e0b20-a5b36164-5afe-ecf4bbed095c/xsibackup/bin/xsilib: Permission denied

Re: permissions?

The first and most basic thing you have to do to use a program is to assign execute permissions.
The first three lines in the README file explain you how to do that:

FROM THE README FILE

INSTALLATION

1 - Extract the contents of the .zip package to any persistent path
in your ESXi server, i.e: /scratch/xsi

2 - Change to the installation directory and apply permissions to
the xsibackup file and the bin folder.

    # chmod -R 0700 xsibackup bin

3 - Run xsibackup

    #./xsibackup --help

3 - Generate a new request.key file
   
    #./xsibackup --request-key
