Yast2 Backup Fails Consistently

Keep getting the following message at the end of attempting to back up my system
with Yast2...

Archive creation failed
Autoinstallation profile saved to file /data2/backup/autoinst.xml.

When I click "Details", I see the following "Backup summary details:"

Storing host name failed
Storing date failed
File list stored successfully
Comment stored successfully
Storing list of installed packages failed
Detecting disk partitions failed
Total archived files: 0

Suggestions? I thought maybe I was short on space on the drive I was trying to
save the backup image on, but I am only using 14 GB out of 36 GB, so that is not
the problem. I have backed up successfully before, but it hasn't worked after several
reboots over the last week.
