I am new to an existing BackupPC server. It was set up a long time ago
and worked fine but the machine died. So the config Files were moved to
a new server where BackupPC was installed via RPM on ubuntu.
Backups are working fine, but old Backups won't get removed, so the HDD
is running out
Thanks for your help.
I have tried tar with parameter p as root user and it works. :D
-p, --same-permissions, --preserve-permissions
ignore umask when extracting files (the default for root)

After installed Backuppc4afs on Mac 10.5 server, I could start backup
from CGI interface, but it could not automatically start scheduled
backup. The error in LOG is:
/usr/local/BackupPC/bin/BackupPC_nightly: Wrong user: my userid is 502,
instead of (backuppc4afs)
Please su backuppc4afs
This may be a little long-winded, but I need some input.
In the past I've used external drives to keep a rotation of offsite backups.
One drive would be offsite while the other was receiving dumps of data. I used
an archive host to dump tar_gzip files of all my data.
This system worked great
How did you determine that userid 502 is backuppc4afs? Do id backuppc4afs
and id 502 return the same results? What about su backuppc4afs -c id?
Have you configured the Mac to be aware of either an ldap server or AD
domain in Directory Services? It's easy to accidentally configure duplicate

This is the way I do it at one location. I
I used command id to determine userid. Actually id backuppc4afs, id
502 and su backuppc4afs -c id gave the same results:
RArwjms04:bin root# id backuppc4afs
uid=502(backuppc4afs) gid=1025(backuppc4afs) groups=1025(backuppc4afs)
RArwjms04:bin root# id 502
So someone (an unskilled office worker) swaps the drive
once a week after
they get an e-mail of a successful backup. They then take
the drive with the
new data and remove it offsite.
Part of the reason I don't want to do this is that three drives are required in
order to have on offsite at
I move to another drive the backuppc root dir that contains these folders:
conf cpool log passwd pc perl_module pool trash
and now my status on the front page isn't updating:
* Pool file system was recently at 70% (7/13 02:07), today's max is 70%
(7/13 02:03) and yesterday's max
I have backuppc running fine backing-up windows and mac machines, except one
mac. It fails in the first few minutes of the backup.
If I run the backup from the command line then it hangs - if I remove the
--server and the --sender switches and run the command it works fine.
