Cannot back up non-standard Linux mount points using RALUS with Backup Exec
Posted on 2008-10-21
I am trying to back up a mount point on my SuSE SLES 10.2 machine using Backup Exec 10.0 and RALUS.
I CAN backup "/etc" or "/" or "/srv" or "/home" , BUT NOT a mount point called /data which resides on the same physical disk and contains my shared files.
Backup Exec logs show that the job successfully completed but no data was backed up. This job completes in like 5 seconds. ?huh? It does not seem to be a permission thing as I tried 777. A backup exec "test" reports a successful connect.
I also tried using a soft or symbolic link from /home but the end result was the same.
The file system is ext3 on a logical volume. If more info is needed just ask. I appreciate the responses.
