Backup of Samba share

Created: 03 Dec 2012 | 3 comments

Hi all,

I have a linux machine backup_1 over which I use to take the backup of all the linux machines in my datacenter using rdiff-backup. Then on the machine backup_1 I have configured the Samba for the directory which has the backup of all the linux machines and now I have added this samba share in Backup Exec under "user define", the machine backup_1 does not has the backup client install over it.

 

Now the problem is, when I take the backup of all linux machines over Backup_1, all the symbolic links turn wrong as the source is changed and when backup exec takes the backup of that samba share I have tons of error about all the symbolic links as they are wrong. I have been taking the backup of all original files so I want to skip the symbolic links !!! How can I do so ??? Any ideas ?

Note: I don't have the client installed over backup_1 

 

 

:)

Have you tried unchecking these options in your backup job?

 

* EDIT *

If the above does not work, then see this document

http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH65851

You would not be able to see the options in the document unless you are licenced to backup Linux servers.
