Hello!
When I try to use rear with SLES15 i´m just getting:

 rear format /dev/sdi
USB or disk device /dev/sdi is not formatted with ext2/3/4 or btrfs
filesystem
Formatting /dev/sdi will remove all currently existing data on that whole
device
Type exactly 'Yes' to format /dev/sdi with ext3 filesystem
(default 'No' timeout 300 seconds)
Yes
ERROR: Failed to create vfat filesystem on EFI system partition /dev/sdi1
