xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

I have manually installed XSIBACKUP-PRO_11.0.2 in ESXi 6.7. After extracting the zip file and changing permissions on the install file I get a message: "-sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted"

I then extracted all the files to the installation directory and run ./xsibackup and I get the same message: "-sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted"

Any help will be appreciated since I have only a 15 day license to evaluate XSIBackup.

Re: xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

Are you installing as root?
You just have a permissions issue.
Follow the procedure detailed in the README.txt file for manual installation.
If you still get stuck, describe in detail every step you are taking and where exactly you get the error.

Re: xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

Same answer: permission issue. There really isn't any obscure thing about the message you are receiving.
Revise permissions on the xsibackup and bin folder. Read the README.txt file please.

Re: xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

You are the sys admin of your system. Check why you don't have execution permissions on the /vmfs/volumes/Datastore datastore or choose a different location where you do have those permissions. There's nothing more to say from our part.

Re: xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

Hi, I install only ESXi downloaded from vmware, but I today tested two versions ESXi on my server Fujitsu Primergy TX1310 M3 with this result:
    VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.7.0-8169922.x86_64.iso = problem with permission on datastore
    VMware-ESXi-6.7.0-9214924-Fujitsu-v451-1.iso = problem with permission on datastore
    VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.5.0.update02-8294253.x86_64.iso = NO problem with permission on datastore
    VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.7.0-8169922.x86_64.iso upgraded from 6.5 = problem with persmission on datastore

Second i go to the BIOS and disabled Secure Boot Control in: Security > Secure Boot Configuration

Now i haven't problem with permission on datastore ESXi 6.7 - works normal.

Re: xsibackup will not run - operation not permitted

sh: ./xsibackup: Operation not permitted message is due to secure boot being turned to on, turn it off and reboot.
