VmWare Consolidated Backup, DP 6 and incremental backups

Dear all,
I've some trouble with the backup infrastructure we use for our datacenter.
The VCB is in place and it works fine, like other network bakups, BUT also if I read everywhere that VCB can provide incremental backups (of course using "file" and not "full" VCB mode), the fact is that it doesn't work: everytime a full backup is done, regardless if in the DP backup schedule is written to do an Incremental one...

This is a backup spec. example, and in this case a full backup is performed every time:

itdcmaf9:/etc/opt/omni/server/datalists# cat Antivirus_IF3_ESX_FileVM

DATALIST "Antivirus_IF3_ESX_FileVM"
GROUP "DC_Administrated_Backup_Italy"
DYNAMIC 1 1
PREEXEC "vmwarepreexec.cmd -a ITMILIF3 -r d:\mnt -t file -m san" -on_host itmili d1
POSTEXEC "vmwarepostexec.cmd" -on_host itmilid1
DEFAULTS
{
FILESYSTEM
{

} -protect days 30
RAWDISK
{

}
}

DEVICE "ESLA_lto2_01"
{

}

WINFS "d:\mnt\ITMILIF3\letters\c" itmilid1:"d:\mnt\ITMILIF3\letters\c"
{
-no_storedrim
}

WINFS "d:\mnt\ITMILIF3\letters\d" itmilid1:"d:\mnt\ITMILIF3\letters\d"
{
-no_storedrim
}


Is there some trik to do real Incremental backup with VCB and DP (we've both 6.0 and 5.5 and they have the same problem)?

Many thanks, Alex
