Mail missed backup only after 30 days

Hi,

we're using backuppc for several Linux machines. If a server is unavailable we get a message that the backup failed which is perfect. But for one server we got the message only when the backup failed for 30 days so we where not aware of the problem, but after 30 days. I've tried to find any info on how this can happened, but so far I've found almost no info on how to debug this problem or on which mail is sent when. Another server which is unavailable regularly does trigger the mails and all other messages seem to be sent.

Anybody knows where to start debugging this problem?

Met vriendelijke groet,

Micha Kersloot

BackupPC 4.0.0 - can we now store files to any filesystem?

Hi

As version 4 doesn't user hardlinks, can I use any filesystem to store data?

I would like to use remote hardware NAS to store data. This is a simple, cheap NAS for smal office usage and it provides SMB connectin so i was going to mount it to my filesystem and use it as data storage for backups.
Is it possible? 

I very appreciate quick reply, my boss wants me to finish backups config next week...

Best regards
Kamil Tunkiewicz

backup never finishes

hi,

I would hope the backup would have finished by now after doubling the 
server memory. The backups of the same client of all the other 
partitions over a 1Tb of space work fine.

Backup server 32G of ram Backuppc Version 3.2.1, client Ubuntu 12, 132Gb

NewFileList.0 May 2 06:25
NewFileList has not updated since May 2 14:28, XferLOG.z May 2 19:44

file count is ~850k no recursive links

  strace -p 4817
Process 4817 attached - interrupt to quit
select(16, [6], [9], [6 9], NULL)       = 1 (in [6])
select(8, [6], NULL, [6], {0, 0})       = 1 (in [6], left {0, 0})
read(6, "log   pool     664 9531/1052    "..., 65536) = 120
select(16, [6], [9], [6 9], NULL)       = 1 (in [6])
select(8, [6], NULL, [6], {0, 0})       = 1 (in [6], left {0, 0})
read(6, "log   pool     664 9531/1052    "..., 65536) = 124
select(16, [6], [9], [6 9], NULL)       = 1 (in [6])
select(8, [6], NULL, [6], {0, 0})       = 1 (in [6], left {0, 0})

What else should I be looking at?

C$ or C:\ ?

Does BackupPC see these two shares differently? Which to use?  Why?

Thanks.

Troubleshooting BackupPC Setup

Hi, my first post to this list...

I have a newly set up Windows 7 PC I'm trying to back up, via Samba, 
from a CENTOS 6.5 server.

All low-level connectivity testing I do shows the server can connect to 
the PC.  Pings work. smbclient, smbmount, etc., successfully connect to 
the PC and I can see all the files on the PC.  Still, BackupPC's log 
shows a string of:

2014-04-20 16:00:04 no ping response

The Windows Firewall is turned off.

FWIW, this PC was recently upgraded from XP, and was previously working 
fine with BackupPC.  I upgraded "in place," using a custom Win7 install, 
then LapLink's PCMover product to restore apps, user accounts and data.

What further troubleshooting can I do?  Thanks.
