I work nights, so, last night when I
got home I sent my previous email. This morning I got up early and
while (software) updating my backuppc server I decided to try "sudo -u backuppc
/usr/share/backuppc/BackupPC_dump -v -f [clienthostname]" and the client is backup
as I write this.
What happened, I am asking myself. Last night I was running "ssh -vvv
[clienthostname]" to test my ssh connection. ssh was
'complaining' that I had some bad lines in my
/var/lib/backuppc/.ssh/known_hosts file. I removed those 'bad
lines' with "ssh-keygen -f
"/var/lib/backuppc/.ssh/known_hosts" -R bob-desktop2" and long
story short, this morning (half asleep) decided to let my
backuppc server fail again trying to backuppc this troubled
client. To my amazement, half asleep, it did not fail!
Thank you everyone for your help. Somehow, during this
journey, I stumbled onto the solution but, I might never have
found it without the help of the mailing list. So, thank you everyone!
