I have created a backup server (running on linux) and I have backed up some windows machines there with some success.
I am now trying to add a Linux client, no dice. What i tried is:
on server, Add a client. Put FQDN in internet client field.
got web page that included:
Install it directly in the terminal via:
&& wget "https://SERVER.DOMAIN.COM/urbackup/x?a=download_client&lang=en&clientid=12&authkey=XXXXXXXXXXXXX&os=linux" -O $TF && sh $TF; rm $TF
Chose 2. LVM snapshot type, did not get any errors.
After installing in terminal as instructed, nothing seemed to happen.
Ran in client:
urbackupclientctl start -f
The process does not seem to exit.
Server showed “Indexing” briefly and then “No activities”. Status page for this client shows -
File backups: No paths to backup configured
Image backups: not supported.
/var/log/urbackupclient.log is empty on the client
tried (as per https://www.urbackup.org/administration_manual.html#x1-140002.2.3)
urbackupclientctl add-backupdir –path /
PARSE ERROR: Argument: –path
Couldn’t find match for argument
Can anybody advise, what could i try next? Client is Centos 7, LVM root partition.
