Hello, I’m testing urbackup since while to replace my existing solution for my family “business” asap. Cool stuff btw. thanks. Actually I’m testing urbackup part of infscape appliance (free) and yes, it raises some questions.
Let’s start with one strange behaviour, since I’m only interessted in image backups for Windows and also Linux. My prefered Linux distros are Debian & Ubuntu. All my test machines are setup in Hyper-V actually, also infscape.
First attempt, testing image backup with dattodb, a nightmare, does only compile until kernel 5.4.0, produces a lot errors laters and does fill “/” to 100% after a few tries with fairly large uncleaned “.dattodb…” & “.overlay…” files. So, disqualifiying behaviour …
I don’t like to operate LVM on my Linux machines, so “DM snapshots”. Setup fairly good and easy, let migrate my root volume to device manager handling on both VM, then first urbackup image backup try, does work, crazy fast. But I still find a left over file “.era-meta…” albeit just 2MB, shouldn’t been left.
So, both very first full image backup of my Ubuntu & Debian test VMs using dm snapshots did work properly. I can mount those images within urbackup webif and do a walk thru incl. test downloads.

Ok, what is then the issue? Both machines are listed as “not supported” for “image backup status” and won’t be backed up again, what ever I do.
So, how does that work, succesful first attempt, but marked not supported in infscape/urbackup WebIF?
Possible to set it to “Ok” manually?
And don’t worry, file backup is deactivated meanwhile for all machines.
