Online backup manager: missing scheduled backups


Hi,

this is not a question but a solution for a problem I had, just to share with you in case you would have the same problem.

I installed the Online Backup Manager (obm) in Ubuntu 7.04. It worked fine but after a reboot the scheduled backups would not run anymore.

Problem was that obm was set up to run in runlevel 3+ but Ubuntu (and other debians) never go any further then 2. :-)

To solve is simple, create a sym-link in /etc/rc2.d to the /etc/init.d/obmscheduler:

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/obmscheduler /etc/rc2.d/S99obmscheduler

Now the service should start during a reboot.

To check whether the obm-scheduler is running do an 'ps -ef | grep obm':

<something> /usr/local/obm/jvm/bin/java -Xrs -Xmx128m -Djava.library.path=/usr/local/obm/bin -cp /usr/local/obm/bin:/usr/local/obm/bin/obcs.jar:/usr/local/obm/bin/obcs-lib.jar obcs /usr/local/obm

Good luck, Ronald
