Re: [Server-devel] ds-backup.py backup_url server check

2009-04-23 Thread Carol Farlow Lerche
When the client references schoolserver, it depends on client
configuration where and if it finds it.  Places that can affect this lookup
process are the configuration designating what is your DNS server, the
configuration of your resolver (e.g. does it supply a default domain if the
requested name is not fully qualified.  So if your local domain is
configured to be mydom.com, schoolserver.mydom.com might be the actual
name that is looked up.  Finally if you have an /etc/hosts file you can
supply a local name for an arbitrary IP address, so you could have a line
there that gave 192.0.2.1 schoolserver

If your schoolserver is not named schoolserver in your same domain, just
add an /etc/host entry.

 Hi,

 I have updated my XS to the lastest code and I have the ds-backup server
 code on there.
 I have ds-backup-client on my client (slightly modified SoaS).

 Now I am investigating how this works and I am reviewing ds-backup.py to
 see why my backups are not working.

 I am looking around line 114 and I see this

backup_url = 'http://schoolserver/backup/1'

 I see that the serial number from the client is appended to this.

 I don't see anything on the XS that responds on this URL. Should this
 respond or do I have the wrong version of this script or I am confused?
 If something should respond on this URL, is it part of Moodle, ds-backup
 server or something else?

 Thanks!
 Dave

Hi, yes i can connect to the XS at http://schoolserver, ping schoolserver
etc. It does look like its configured correctly. The SoaS is getting a DHCP
address from the XS.

Thanks

Actually I think this happens, from my reading of the code, when there
haven't been any backups yet. You need to make sure the backup process has
run on the client side first.

Dave



 Any ideas ?

 Thanks :-)

Wait close but a different error. datastore-latest is supposed to be a
symlink to the lastest backup. If there anything inside the
/library/users// directory at all?

Check the web server error log on the XS, it might have more diagnostic
info.

 I put print e.code in the HTTPError handler in check_server_availble and
 the error code is 403 for Unauthorized. I can connect to Moodle with the
 magic cookie in Browse so I am not sure what is expected for authentication
 for the backup.
