I’m using uBackup to create file backups of several Linux servers. Most of this goes fine, however, I do have one small annoyance.
The filesystems of these servers are all created on LVM, except for 1: /boot; this one resides natively on the disk partition.
Now, whenever I try to backup this server, I get the following errors in the log:
Errors 03/20/17 12:46 Creating snapshot of “/boot” failed
Errors 03/20/17 12:46 Volume group “xvda1” not found
Errors 03/20/17 12:46 Cannot process volume group xvda1
Errors 03/20/17 12:46 Could not find LVM volume group of volume /dev/xvda1
Errors 03/20/17 12:46 Creating snapshot of “boot” failed.
The files in /boot are backed up, but is there a way I can tell the client to not try and create a snapshot for /boot?
#This is a key=value config file for determining the scripts/programs to create snapshots
Apparently there’s no need to edit the script, the backup isn t actually in error.
I tested and unless the “require-snapshot” is set the backup shouldnt fail if snapshots aren’t possible. And the client isn’t in error status.
It actually backs up the /boot folder, but says completed with errors, so everytime you have to click on it to check the errors. If i could turn off snapshotting of the /boot folder, then it would say OK, and I wouldn’t need to check it everytime.
