About next release of rsnapshot?

Hi David and all,

The latest release for rsnapshot is 1.3.1 that generated in 2008. Is 
that time for generating next release for it?

Users would be happy to have a new release with latest changes I think :)

Regards
Wenzong

Bash security vulnerability published, affects SSH based rsync access in rsnapshot

It seems there was an awkward vulnerability in the current releases of
Bash in various operating systems, particulary notable in Red Hat for
us RHEL and CentOS and Scientific Linux users.

            https://access.redhat.com/articles/1200223

            http://www.csoonline.com/article/2687265/application-security/remote-exploit-in-bash-cve-2014-6271.html

The vulnerability can allow abuse of even SSH credentials using
'ForceCommand' to control operations. That particularly includes rsync
setups, even those with restrictively configured SSH keys, as long as
the shell of the relevant target account  is /bin/bash or the symlink
to it at "/bin/sh" for many Linux systems.

It includes a lot of other setups, tool. Get cracking on those updates, folks!!!

fixing a backup drive

Hi,

I was wondering if I could get some advice on the following situation.

I found that our backup drives here at work were not reformatted from 
ntfs. They are filling up, and I believe it's because the file system is 
causing every backup to be a full backup rather than an incremental.

For example,

$ sudo rsnapshot du
173G    /media/FantomHD/rsnapshot/weekly.0/
173G    /media/FantomHD/rsnapshot/weekly.1/
288M    /media/FantomHD/rsnapshot/weekly.2/
173G    /media/FantomHD/rsnapshot/weekly.3/
etc...

My plan is to copy a recent backup directory, as well as one or two 
older directories, off of the current drives. Then re-format them to 
ext4 and resume rsnapshot as normal.

Is there anything more I need to do? Will rsnapshot get thrown off by 
the sudden lack of any previous backups? Is there anything I'm overlooking?

Also, out of curiosity, is there a way to start from my oldest backup 
and "rebuild" incremental backups by rsync'ing to another disk that has 
an ext4 file system (prior to formatting mine)?

Thanks!

patch for checking the return value of preexec cmd

Hi,

I'm running rsnapshot with a patch to check for the return value of the
preexec cmd. On error ($? != 0), a message is printed and rsnapshot exits.
In my preexec script, I mount the backup target...

Please see the attached file for the patch.

Kind regards,

Staggering 1st initial Backups

Hello all,

I've set up rsnapshot via the .conf file and it working out brilliantly.

Next now I'd like to set up the cron file to automate it.

How will it work with the initial set of backups.. i.e. I know my 1st daily backup (daily.0) with take some
time since it'll be the 1st one and about 500Gb of data will be written.
Will the second daily (daily.1) backup take the same amount of time/data?

Then the 1st Weekly (weekly.0)... will this be a large file also?.. and will it take a lot of time and so on.

Why I'm asking.. is that I'd like to make sure I stagger them properly so theres no problems

See my .conf file below.

# This is a sample cron file for rsnapshot.
# The values used correspond to the examples in /etc/rsnapshot.conf.
# There you can also set the backup points and many other things.
#
# To activate this cron file you have to uncomment the lines below.
# Feel free to adapt it to your needs.

# 0 */4         * * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot hourly
30  3            * * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot daily
0  2            * * 1           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot weekly
01 12           1 * *           root    /usr/bin/rsnapshot monthly

Thanks for your help,

Shay

Beginner Rsnapshot & Webmin

Hello all,

Be gentle with me... I'm new with Rsnapshot

I've just installed Rsnapshot via a Webmin Module  ( http://tbanelwebmin.free.fr/ )

I use Webmin to manage a little a file server in an office.. its a 1TB system. (2off 1TB, RAID1)
(Ubuntu Linux Server 12.04.1)

At present I use Filesystem Backup to backup everything to an external 1Tb Seagate External USB drive once
per week (Sunday Night). This is a gzip Archive.

Going forward - I want to set the backup up maybe like the following:

Sun Night: Full System Backup
Mon Night: Incremental Backup
Tues Night: Incremental Backup
Wed Night: Incremental Backup
Thurs Night: Incremental Backup
Fri Night: Incremental Backup
Sat Night: Incremental Backup

Can Rsnapshot do the above?
If so... are there instructions on how to do this with Webmin... such as an example?

Thanks for your help

backup a rsnapshot repository to a fallback backupserver

Hi,

how would you backup a rsnapshot repository to a fallback backupserver?

Once a day a simple rsync on the whole repository like

 rsync -az -H --delete --numeric-ids /source backup2:/backup

or setting up rsnapshot on the fallback backupserver and rsnapshot e.g.
last hourly.0 or daily.0 on the primary backup server?

Ciao
Marcus

virus scan with clamav of rsnapshot backups

Hello,

I backup several servers with rsnapshot over ssh. It works fine. And now I want tu scan my backup dir with
clamav. Il did a clamscan -i -r on my /var/cache/rsnapshot and deleted some infected mails. But this took 5
hours !

Now my dir is supposed clean. For the future I would like to scan only uploaded files, and not scan and rescan
always clean files yet scanned. 

Is there a way, some hook, in the rsnapshot processus, to scan and quarantine the infected files at incoming
time ?

I have only seen pre and post treatment scripts availables, but as I can't distinguish hard linked files,
with post treatment, I scan all my ~10 GB files in my hourly.0 for only 1 to 3 MB of new files uploaded. 

Has anybody an idea to guide me towards the good way, that would help me a lot ?

P.S.: I apologize for my so bad English :-(
