OK - I have a workstation with backuppc installed too :-) I tried to backup
this backuppc data (from LVM snapshot) to an external usb-disk:
/usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_copyPCPool.pl -F -f --noverbose -t
/snapshot -o /var/lib/backuppc/backup/files
But I get a lot of errors of type:
(inode=744813, nlinks=1) INVALID pc file and UNLINKED to pool
and of type:
Argument "cpool/d/2/0/d20ba8a18da819b3005bb9418fb56e91" isn't numeric in
modulus (%) at /usr/share/backuppc/bin/BackupPC_copyPCPool.pl line 666.
ERROR: Can't write to inode pool file:
Any hint what goes wrong?
