I am using xtrabackup to take full backup and send it to another host as .tar file using the following backup command:

xtrabackup --backup  -u root -p --no-lock --compress --stream=tar --datadir=/datadir --target-dir=/data/backup

but tar file is invalid as following error:

Invalid --stream argument: tar

The command working normally with innobackupex but failed with xtrabackup, is there a different way to do it?
