automatic restore on a development system

Hello,

I wonder if it is somehow possible to perform a automatic restore on a development system after a successful backup.

Something like a script for the DumpPostUserCmd or DumpPostShareCmd which: 
- make sure / wait till there is no backup running in the development machine
- start a restore process to the development machine for a share or a file from the currently backuped machine

I can do this very easy manually on the web interface but is it also possible to do this automatically somehow?

regards
Markus Köberl

Parallelizing operations on the host to backup

Hello,

is there an easy way to parallelize the rsync operations on the host to 
beckup?

Here's my problem: the host I need to back up has a /home of about 300Gb 
full of really small files (10 millions maybe). Each scan of the file 
system takes a really long time. The storage I use for it, though, is 
quite fast and has a lot of disks, thus parallelizing the operations 
(say, 1 rsync for each user under /home/* and 10 parallel threads) would 
ideally shorten the scan time by a factor of 10 given a powerful enough 
backup server.

I know I could create several backuppc "hosts" all pointing to the same 
hostname, and one backs up a subset of users, but maybe there's some 
other parameter I could use.

Regards,

Backup in progress with no Xfer PID

Hi everybody,

a little issue. I have an incr backup in progress. BackupPC identify
the PID but it has no Xfer PID and this is right because pc is not on
the internet right now. Anyway, BackupPC tells me backup in progress
in Host Summary.

Why does this happen ? And is it correct or there is some problem that
I cannot identify ?

Here is last log rows:

2015-03-07 17:00:00 incr backup started back to 2015-02-26 13:00:02
(backup #0) for directory XXXX
2015-03-07 17:00:03 Got fatal error during xfer (inet connect: No route to host)
2015-03-07 17:00:08 Backup aborted (inet connect: No route to host)
2015-03-07 18:00:00 incr backup started back to 2015-02-26 13:00:02
(backup #0) for directory XXXX
2015-03-07 18:00:03 Got fatal error during xfer (inet connect: No route to host)
2015-03-07 18:00:08 Backup aborted (inet connect: No route to host)
2015-03-07 19:00:00 incr backup started back to 2015-02-26 13:00:02
(backup #0) for directory XXXX

Well, after 19:00 I have no message such as No route to host. So
BackupPC believe it is in progress.

Thank you
Antonio

BackupPC on Nginx - help, it is killing me!

So, I am still stuck on

Error: Unable to read config.pl or language strings!!
Note: $ENV{REMOTE_USER} is not set, which could mean there is an installation problem. BackupPC_Admin
expects Apache to authenticate the user and pass their user name into this script as the REMOTE_USER
environment variable.pache, so useless to me. 

Any ideas how to fix that?

xpac | 6 Mar 20:32 2015

So I have NO idea what is wrong

Running BackupPC in a Linux environment with four clients, no issues.

Yesterday I built a new machine that will be used as a test box separate from our production network.  I tried
to restore some files to it from a backup from one of the other hosts, and all I continually get is "no ping
response" messages in the BackupPC web console and log   :x  :x 

This test machine is on a different subnet separated by a firewall, but there is no problem pinging in
between machines, ssh between machines, etc etc as the firewall policies/trusts are already set up. 
Also, one of the current clients that is fine is also on its own subnet/DMZ so I know it isn't a firewall issue.

I created the correct hosts entry on the server and client, and also added the backuppc ssh key to the
client's root authorize_keys list.  I even went further and completely disabled iptables and set selinux
to permissive on the client.

As far as I can tell, there is nothing different between this new host and the previous ones, but I can't get
anything but these no ping response errors, which considering the fact that the machines can in fact ping
each other tells me absolutely nothing.

Anybody ever see this before?

Schedule full backup into weekends

Hi everybody,

is it possible (and advisable) to have just one full backup and all
the rest as incr backup ? My problem is that the data volume is big
and backup over Internet is not easy.

Further, I would like to plan eventually full backup just on weekend
and incremental during the rest of week days. How can I accomplish it
?

Thank you
Antonio

Wake-on-LAN setup - no ping response


Dear all,

 

Any ideas/assistance will be highly appreciated.

 

I have backuppc server on Gentoo which works fine with regular client backups. Now I am configuring wake-on-lan to wake windows clients up before backup.

 

The following has been done:

1.       Bash script has been a bit modified from the one suggested on this forum (details of the current script are provided at the end of the message).

2.       Config.pl has been modified on server as the following:

$Conf{PingPath} = '/usr/local/bin/wolping.sh';

$Conf{NmbLookupFindHostCmd}  = ' ';

 

3.       Appropriate 777 rights have been granted to wolping.sh. This is output of ls –l:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 backuppc backuppc 1246 12:00 wolping.sh

 

4.       I have tested wolping.sh and it works great from terminal under backuppc user

 

But when I fire manual backup on any client which is in standby mode, I got the following message: “2015-03-06 11:29:14 no ping response”

 

Seems that backuppc does not even fire the script as “logger”   does not appear in tail -f /var/log/messages

 

 

Could you please advise what might cause such an issue

 

Many thanks

 

 

 

 

wolping.sh:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

 

#!/bin/bash

 

 

 

#this script is totally designed for the backuppc ping command

 

#which is the first thing it does before it starts a backup

 

#this is a substitute which pings the machine, if it is not

 

#awake then it wakes it using a magic packet - using the wol.bsh script

 

#then pings again to make sure

 

 

 

PING=/bin/ping

        if [ $? -eq 0 ]

 

        then

 

           WOL_RES="OK"

 

        else

 

           WOL_RES="FAIL"

 

 

        fi

 

}

                exit 1

        sleep $SLEEPTIME

 

        $PING $ARG1 $ARG2 $WAKEHOST

 

        if [ $? -eq 0 ]

 

        then

 

           logger "success waking $WAKEHOST."

 

        else

 

           logger "unable to wake $WAKEHOST."

 

           exit 1

 

        fi

 

else

 

   $PING $ARG1 $ARG2 $ARG3 $ARG4 $WAKEHOST

exit 0

Rsyncd user and password field gets confused as a login form

When configuring an rsyncd host with the username being the same as the backuppc cgi user that is saved the browser autofills the password that is used for the cgi interface, you can delete it and write your own but pressing save saves the autofilled password.

backuppc hangs when restoring folder with large amount of subdirs and content

Hello, 

I'm trying to restore a backup folder from an Ubuntu server to a windows 7 pc with cygwin/rsyncd the restore hangs. When I restore a subfolder with a small amount of content it recovers fine, but when I restore the entire folder it just hangs on the smallest file, there is no pattern and debugging is hard because it just hangs on a file, being busy but not failing. when i 'watch' lsof i can see the file it hangs at, that's it. Could it be because of filepaths that are to long because of the amount of subdirs? I hope someone can help! I know my backup is there, but restoring all the dirs separately is an impossible job!

What files are in incremental

Hi,

Is there a way to tell what files are changed in an incremental backup?  
>From what I can see, the XFERLog shows all files.
