Question /bin/df: no file systems processed from BackupPC


Hi

I've just installed BackupPC on FC11, and have started to configure clients. My intention was to have the backup on a USB hard drive at /media/faBackup however it became aparent after a little testing that this location was only temporary, recreated by FC to mount the USB device at each time the drive was attached (or woken from power saving mode). For a more permanent mount to fix this I've made an entry in the fstab and mount the drive at /mnt/faBackup. All seems well with that however...my main BackupPC log is filling with these entries:
Code:
/bin/df: `/media/faBackup': No such file or directory
/bin/df: no file systems processed
/bin/df: `/media/faBackup': No such file or directory
/bin/df: no file systems processed
/bin/df: `/media/faBackup': No such file or directory
/bin/df: no file systems processed
/bin/df: `/media/faBackup': No such file or directory
/bin/df: no file systems processed
/bin/df: `/media/faBackup': No such file or directory
/bin/df: no file systems processed
I've searched the whole system for a file that even contains that string and there are none. TopDir is set to /mnt/faBackup. Any ideas where it could be picking up this legacy location?

Thanks
Geoff

Can you please explain this process a little for me? The TopDir entry has been changed, so I can't see anywhere that it's storing this old value.

Thanks

Sure, I will try to explain. Can you give the details about how to transfer the data to BackupPC? May it will to explain.

Hi,

From my XP machines I'm using rsyncd, from the linux (localhost) I'm using tar. It's not clear in which of the BackupPC processes these errors are being generated.

As root I've searched my entire machine for files containing the string /media/faBackup and there are none aparently...yet these errors keep being generated.

Any ideas?
