Problem with Linux client


#1

Hello,

I am trying to make backup of the urbackup server database which is running into a Linux Debian 8 based NAS.
I installed Linux client into the NAS to make regular backups of UrBackup Database (as I readed it is a best practice). But when I launch the backup I receive those errors:

30/11/18 09:31 DEBUG Reflink copying is enabled
30/11/18 09:31 DEBUG Reflink copying is enabled

30/11/18 09:31 ERROR Backup had an early error. Deleting partial backup.

The filesystem in the NAS is BTRFS and I enabled snapshots in the client installation. Also I tried to disable snapshots but then I receive errors that files are in use an cannot copy them.

Any suggestions?

Thanks a lot.

There is a bug if you name the backup path urbackup (case sensitive). This is fixed with 2.3.x, but only if you add new paths there. To fix this problem you should rename the backup path from urbackup to something else, then restart the client backend.

Perfect!! It works fine now.

Thank you so much
