Thanks for the support guys.  You're right, once I edited the per host config the directory and files showed up.

I was having a weird issue where it's passing a -N flag in the smbclient backup command string which denotes anonymous access even though I supplied a password.  I removed it and can now backup the Server 2003 client I've been testing with. 

Hopefully will be able to start using it for a customer this week.  Thanks again for the great assistance!

That's it. Create the directory /etc/BackupPC/pc. owner
backuppc:backuppc. Copy the per-host file into it, owner
backuppc:backuppc, and away you go.

Or you could go with Les's way and configure the web interface, which
you'll probably want to do anyway. Thank's Les ;-)

Got visibility?
Most devs has no idea what their production app looks like.
Find out how fast your code is with AppDynamics Lite.
