I had working Urbackup Server in my local network.
A lot of windows clients was backing up everyday, but finally my server stopped working and I lost whole machine.
Now I have new server running on centos, but still old clients waitng for old server show up
And the question is, is it possible to put data from server_idents.txt to server database to make clients think that’s old server and start backing up normally, without deleting that file at all clients separately?
If you have a backup of the database/configuration (by default it’s on) you can restore the original UrBackup config.
If you don’t, you must start from scratch and reinstall clients.
Thanks for answer.
Unfortunately i lost access to old btrfs, because of multiple power losses, tried everything,
So i have to start one more time : - )
I will check another way, I think deleting server_idents.txt from urbackup folder will work.
Tommorow I’ll have some info about that
Hi, It’s working
cd “C:\Program Files\Urbackup”
net stop UrBackupClientBackend
taskkill /IM UrBackupClient.exe
Just for sure i putted so many unnecessary commands, cause I’m sending that “script” to differents Windows systems remotely
Good to know, but what have you achieved if you don’t have the server backup? Just avoided the client reinstallation?
It’s tytanic work to reinstall f.e. 100 clients in network, so I sent my poor “script” mentioned above, and just watched my clients showing up
