Re: Error code 266 at file dedup-in.c

We have not yet tested (c)XSIBackup on (c)ESXi version 7.0.3, still the message is clear: the file is blocked for reading.
If you want to use (c)XSIBackup you will have to choose some previous (c)ESXi version.

You may run the command below and paste it here for us to try to offer you some hint, still you must know you are in an unexplored territory and you are mostly on your own.

ls -la /dev/disks/

Re: Error code 266 at file dedup-in.c

Hi,
I can confirm the same issue with:

vmware -v
VMware ESXi 7.0.2 build-17867351
2022-01-01T13:48:46 | Error code 266 at file dedup-in.c, line 266 | Error description: can't open input file: /vmfs/volumes/61d02b3c-a3a3f858-03e0-000c294a3985/VM_2/VM_2-flat.vmdk

The issue is happening only if the VM is running.
VMware Tools are installed.

Fixed:
The path of the datastore had a space in it, after renaming the datastore to Datastore_1 backups work even if the 1st time i used the UUID path.

Regards

Re: Error code 266 at file dedup-in.c

Thank you for your feedback.
The fact that we have not announced compatibility with some build does not mean that it won't work.
We have many users with your same version.

It's not a good practice to use spaces in the datastore names, still things should still work even in that case.
We'll revise and eventually fix any possible bugs there.
