Using the Webmin->System->Filesystembackup utility, I would like to create a backup every night and send it to a Windows based server that is running Cygwin.
Here is the config:
backup directory: /var/www/html host: windowsserver.domain.com user: Administrator device: /cygdrive/g/Backups/%m_%B_%d_%Y.tar command: ssh pasword: xxxxxx
Backup Options: label: wwwhtml compression: no symlinks: no prompt for new tape: no ignore read errors: yes path to rmt: /lib/rmt.exe attempt test restore: no split across files: no limit to 1 filesystem: no add just new files to archive: no remount with noatime: no
schedule: every day at 1am
If I select backup now the only output i get is:
Performing backup of /var/www/html to windowsserver.domain.com:/cygdrive/g/Backups/%m_%B_%d_%Y.tar ..
Then no more....
If I enter incorrect details i.e. location of rmt.exe then errors do occur. When the backup now button is clicked i can see a new sshd process and rmt process appear on the windows server.
The folder size i am currently trying to backup is 1.9MB. I wanted to try something small before setting a full system backup.
Please could someone advise how I can get more debug information or suggest how I go about getting the backup to work successfully? I have tested that backups can function to another linux box
Alternatively is there another way I could backup my server? - I do not want to use the create backup and then ftp it elsewhere as that would require a large amount of free hdd space on my webmin server.
