Debian Configuration :: Rdiff-backup On Samba Share
Mar 10, 2010
Is it possible (on lenny, in case that matters) to backup some directories with rdiff-backup, with the target being a WinXP Pro Host, i.e. the target being a SMB share? My idea is to start the XP-Box over WOL, run rdiff-backup and then shut it down using "net rpc SHUTDOWN"...
The problem here is that in my ubuntu desktop pc, the repositories contain the latest rdiff (1.2.8), but in my debian server, the repositories contain v1.2.5. I get an error that the versions are different, therefore I need to compile v1.2.8 in debian myself and I have really no idea how to do that.

I currently have a Samba share on a Debian 7 system. This share was only ever used by Windows systems on the network.
I just finished setting up a Debian 8 system with Xfce, and now I would like to connect to the share. I already installed gvfs-backends and gvfs-bin. When I go to Thunar file manager, and click browse network, I'm presented with a "Windows Network" shortcut. When clicked it says: Failed to open "Windows Network". Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory.
I've got a fresh Wheezy/Xfce install.I'm trying to access a remote samba share the gigolo way. It is an external USB hard drive connected to my router. I can access it read only using the following URL with Icedove: smb://bbox/
Anyway, this is just to try and give might-be-useful information, but ultimately, I don't really want to use fusesmb. I would rather have the gigolo way working, allowing local network shares browsing, auto-connect, etc.
I upgraded my testing/Wheezy Inspiron N5010 to 2.6.38-2-amd64 recently (along with a bunch of other updates, of course) and now my Samba network share is no longer automatically mounting, I have to open a root terminal and do a "mount /mountpoint"; my relevant /etc/fstab entry:
I've tried over options, as well, but it isn't automatically mounting. Any suggestions (including where to file a bug report)?
I am having slight issue with setting up file sharing. I have a windows 7 pc and hp proliant microserver running. I have a raid array which I am using as a share for storing music, pictures etc. When I reboot the debian server I can't connect to the server from the windows 7 PC (I have mapped a network drive) until I go on to the server and restart samba with /etc/init.d/samba restart - then everything works fine. I can ping the server with both ip and hostname but the network drive does not connect - this is straight after a reboot. Is the /etc/init.d/samba restart doing something differently to when the server boots? I have read several posts relating to printer sharing issues which point to samba not starting before cups so I am wondering if samba is starting before some of the relevant networking services.
I'm having a strange problem with data transfers between systems. I have a file server + my desktop. Both are running Debian 8.3. I have a samba share running on the file server and I mount the shares on my desktop on boot via /etc/fstab
When I copy a file using the nautilus from my home folder (on my HDD) on my desktop to the mounted network location, my transfers start out at gigabit speeds 80MB/s-90MB/s for a couple seconds and then drop down to about 8MB/s
But when I terminate the transfer and then use scp to transfer the same file, I get consistent gigabit speed throughout the transfer. I am not sure what is going on.
Is there anywhere that gives detailed (suitable for non-experts) instructions on how to install rdiff-backup?
Only ancient versions seem to exist in any repository, which appears to rule out use of yum. Finding rpm packages also seems extremely difficult. And I'm not too clear what would be required to install from sources.
Start>Run>\192.168.0.1storage gives me "The specified network password is not correct." It lists my domain as "ANTEC" which is the name of my computer, though I've changed the workgroup to WELLS. I've run:
I have carefully made daily backups using rdiff-backup, so in the case of needing to restore I can do so.
But I deleted a directory yesterday, and made a backup in the evening. Therefore, the directory is not in the latest mirror, but in the incremental backup from yesterday.
Now I need to restore the directory. But I cannot figure out how to!
I can see the directory in yesterday's incremental backup; i.e., the following works:
Where [backupdir] is the backup (mirror) directory, and [nameofdir] is the name of the directory I'm trying to restore.
So, I have tried to restore. This is the type of thing I have tried:
Where to-restore.lst holds the name of the directory to restore (in rdiff-backup's format) and [restoredir]is where I want the restored directory to go to.
But, I get errors like:
Useful file specifications begin with the base directory or some pattern (such as '**') which matches the base directory. Well, obviously the file specification doesn't exist in the [restoredir]. That's because I'm trying to restore it! If I try to create an empty directory first, it complains:
How do I restore a deleted directory from a previous day's backup to a designated destination?
While running a simple backup using a basic rdiff-backup command such as: # rdiff-backup /DataDrive /BackupDrive
Got a pair of message lines in the error log for a few "problem" files. Each problem file had two lines similar to the following: ListError Directory/file01.jpg [Errno 5] Input/output error UpdateError Directory/file01.jpg rdiff-backup.tmp.1234 [Errno 5] Input/output error
I am trying to share a USB external Hdrive from my ubuntu install to my windows systems (win 7 and 1 win xp) Everything seams to be working.. as in I can see the computer in "network" from windows explorer.... The problem is no matter what I do I can not seam to browse onto it or even type in direct share locations....
or just browse through the Zbox computer icon that appears in my "Network" window in explorer. I have "sudo chmod 0777 /media/HDMovies"I can see it in the win7 Network window.. I assume it is some setting for security...I am on a home network and not very security conscious. I just want it to work.
I am *finally* getting around to rebuilding my file-sharing computer. I'll be sharing files with both Linux and Windoze machines. It's a home network, so there's nothing fancy needed. I know I have to tweak my smb.conf file until I'm satisfied with the features and security. I'm using SWAT and I'm starting with a bare-bones conf file. It's not secure but I can see the server and selected files/directories from my other Linux box.
My really dumb question is, do I have to reboot both the server and the client machines every time I change the SAMBA configuration? I thought I just had to stop and restart the SAMBA service in the SWAT software - but then the server disappears from my client. It looks like I need to reboot both machines for the client to see the server.
I have a Debian 5.0 system, fresh install, updated with aptitude. Now i'm using vmware to test my system, but the 'real' system, is a small network with around 30 workstations connected in a cisco switch + router. So i test the configuration at home, and when it's working and done, i will copy it to the real network, because i don't want to mess it up
So i installed the newest samba to act as a PDC. You can read my configuration in the following lines:
I added root with 'smbpasswd -a root' command. When I try to connect to the domain with a Windows XP, it says: ' The username cannot be found '
"My network" is behind a firewall inside a larger windows network with AD. My network has a Debian Server with samba 3.2 running. There are 50 users on my server. Users has accounts on the win-server, but is only using this to read mail. How do I mount a windows share on my Debian server in a way that all my users can read and write there?
How come I can access samba share, and windows workgroup computer and don't have any samba package installed? Sudo aptitude show smbclient says not installed. Sudo aptitude show samba says not installed.
And then i get an error instead of my shared files
I assure that the /home/baronobeefdip/share directory exsists and i am using the username and password that exsist on the server's system (the username is baronobeefdip and the password i would like to keep secret)
What am i doing wrong here because something is wrong
And for refernece here is the result from the
I want to the get one that is commented as the "debian floor computer"
I've been following grub-common bug #606845 and in coming to a solution for the issue, these guys are using dd as a brute force means of swapping out master boot records or trampling them, if you prefer. (Background: The issue is related to grub and certain xp installations)
An sample snip of code: dd if=/mbrxp.bin of=/dev/sda bs=512 count=1 1) Is mbrxp.bin a back-up of the mbr taken before installation of squeeze (or grub in general)? 2) Am I fubar if I didn't make a back-up of the mbr before installing grub?
How to remove a specific folder from your backup?$ rdiff-backup --remove-older-than now /backup/backup_laptop/home/derick/DownloadsFatal Error: Increments for directory /backup/backup_laptop/home/derick/Downloads cannot be removed separately.Instead run on entire directory /backup/backup_laptop.
I have an adapter eth0 I need one shared folder to exchange files, with another machine configured as 192.168.0.3/255.255.0.0
ping is working fine between both machines, but I think my problem is in routing, or I need to add a shared resource and I am having trouble with that... not sure if maybe I need to mount something as nfs or what?
I am attempting to share a folder from an existing drive that has been formatted in NTFS. I simply right click on the folder, goto share, and I can see the option to share to UNIX and that works with no problems. My question is; why is the SAMBA sharing dialog grayed out?
"My network" is behind a firewall inside a larger windows network with AD. My network has a Debian Server with samba 3.2 running. One of the hosts that are on the outside of my firewall has a share that I and other Linux-users on the debian server wants to access.
I have two remote systems which I have fstab entries for on the local system. I have them set to noauto, because mount fails during boot for some reason, but that's not the problem. For years I've mounted them in rc.local.
The problem is after I recently reinstalled Debian, when I mount them manually it always asks for my user's password. I've copied my user's pub key from the local to the remote system and put it in the user authorized_keys file (not root), like I always have. But it still asks for a password, and so fails to mount in rc.local.
I had set up as a NT4 style PDC. There is no longer any PDC/BDC dynamic with Samba4 and MS AD support.
I purged samba packages and winbind et al and provisioned the domain correctly, and everything works well now.
What follows is the original post.
========================================================================================== After much struggling with DNS settings, I finally got a basic samba AD controller up and running, and then that's about as far as I got.
As soon as I tried to use the RSAT I found that I could not connect RSAT to the AD server while logged in as root.
The error I get is:
Naming information cannot be located because: The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted. Contact your system adminsiotrator to verify that your domain is properly configured and is currently online.
Running 8.3..On 7.6 I had a automount and I was able to mount/unmount without issue. With 8.3, I can mount, but when I am in Thunar and i unmount, it gives me a permission denied.In /etc/groups I am in plugdev.
