i use a pre-backup script to prune my old backups. So the script is under /opt/verticalbackup/.verticalbackup/scripts/pre-backup.sh I have give the script the correct rights with "chmod +x".
So the script will not run at the start of my cron backup.
Here are the logs: https://pastebin.com/pCHrJ6Pj
So i run the Script manually and i get over hours this:
Vertical Backup 1.1.2 Storage set to sftp://firstname.lastname@example.org/esx-vm No previous fossil collections found
The pre-backup script: #!/bin/sh /opt/verticalbackup/vertical prune -k 0:3 --exhaustive --exclusive
the cron backup command: /opt/verticalbackup/vertical backup --email
All this run directly under ESXi 6.5 (Free).

Ah, after two Hours the Script startet manually. So my old Backups will be deleted.
Only the Problem that the script doest'nt start automatically.

The script should be named
pre-backup, without the '.sh' extension.
I changed your Display Name (which I admit is a very confusing term). Let me know if you want a different one.
