Greetings to all,

I'm trying to set up an automated system wherein snapshots of the file system are taken prior to a backup run. The problem I'm running into can best be described by the following bug report:


http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=100365&cat=

I get this same problem completely at random, and thus is most likely caused by the busy file system, I just don't have anything in place to prove it as the bug submitter does.

Has this bug ever been *really* fixed? The bug report seems to try to call it fixed. I even contacted the bug reporter about this and he admitted that the bug had never been fixed, but that he'd moved on and never found a way around this. If the bug has never been fixed, has someone developed a work around? My primary goal is to make sure that I have a good backup of the databases running on our servers when we run a backup with Bacula. If there is a method other than snapshots to make absolutely sure that my databases are backed up correctly, I would consider that as well. Please help. My backup system is running perfectly except for this nagging sensation that my databases aren't being backed up correctly. Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you,

Chris Morris
