I usually use Debian.  I switched a server to CentOS 6 and installed BackupPC from EPEL, version 3.2.1 and CentOS 6 is using smbclient 3.5.  I took out the –N switch and it now backups up.  It only backs up using the full method.  If I try to do an incremental backup it fails with this.


Running: /usr/bin/smbclient \\\\ts-1\\Users -c tarmode\ full -TcN /var/lib/BackupPC//pc/ts-1/timeStamp.level0 -

incr backup started back to 2012-09-13 20:04:48  (backup #1) for share Users

Xfer PIDs are now 3784,3783

Getting files newer than Thu Sep 13 20:04:48 2012

tarExtract: Done: 0 errors, 0 filesExist, 0 sizeExist, 0 sizeExistComp, 0 filesTotal, 0 sizeTotal

Got fatal error during xfer (Getting files newer than Thu Sep 13 20:04:48 2012)

Backup aborted (Getting files newer than Thu Sep 13 20:04:48 2012)


What do I need to do to get this to work?
