Webmin simple backup fails
I have a single RedHat 7.3 server that I need to backup maybe once a week. I can get around in Linux, but am not very good, yet...Anyways, I created a share on my Windows machine and gave everyone Full permissions. On the RH server, I created a directory called "backup" and them successfully mounted my Windows share to it. On the Linux box I can access the share using my mount point and create files in there with no problmes. However, when I create a test backup in Webmin by trying to just backup my personal home directory on the Linux box (/home/myusername), this is what I get...
Performing backup of /home/sdrew to /backup ..
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Thu Dec 15 10:03:01 2005
DUMP: Dumping /dev/sda5 (/ (dir home/sdrew)) to /backup
DUMP: Added inode 8 to exclude list (journal inode)
DUMP: Added inode 7 to exclude list (resize inode)

DUMP: The ENTIRE dump is aborted.
.. backup failed!
any help is much appreciated!
