Hello,

 

I’m running BackupPC on Debian Sharge. The = version I’m using is backuppc 2.1.1-2sarge2

 

This is loosely related to a previous topic, where = my backups failed with the message ‘Unexpected End of Tar = Archive’ whenever a file > 2GB was locked by Windows. I recompiled smbclient = and I was able back up.

 

However, I can’t seem to restore! The restore = runs to 2GB and then fails. Here is the log I get when I attempt to restore = “Madalyns Personal Folders.pst”, a file that is just slightly larger than = 2GB:

 

Running: /usr/bin/smbclient \\\\ao-pc133\\c\$ =
-U DOMAIN\\Administrator -E -N -d 1 -c tarmode\ full -Tx =

Running: =

Settings/madalynw/Local\ Settings/Application\ =
Data/Microsoft/Outlook/Madalyns\ Personal\ =
Folders.pst
Xfer PIDs =
are now 17726,17727
Domain=3D[DOMAIN] OS=3D[Windows 5.1] =
Server=3D[Windows 2000 LAN =
Manager]
tarmode =

verbose
Error =
writing remote file
This =
backup will fail because: Abandoning =
restore
Abandoning =
restore
tarCreate: Unable to write to output file =
(Connection reset by peer)
Restore =
failed: Abandoning restore

 

The restore wrote a 2GB file to my hard drive, but = stopped there. Obviously, the file was corrupt. As a workaround, I tried simply downloading a zip file… but the zip file was corrupt too. (somehow = was malformed, because it didn’t list any contents, even though it was extremely large).

 

OK, I thought… it’s choking on this = large file. Then I tried to restore a directory that was about ~3.5GB full of = a bunch of JPEG pictures. The log file is a bit bigger in this case, so = it’s attached. Here’s the end, though:

 

This backup will fail because: abandoning =
restore
abandoning =
restore
Abandoning =
restore
Restore =
failed: abandoning restore

 

I again tried downloading a zip file, and it too = was corrupt. Directories were listed inside the zip file as if they were files, and = they were not able to be extracted.

 

I found that if I cut the size of the job down I = was more likely to succeed. However, I gave up restoring the directory filled = with pictures when one of my “chunks” failed, even though it was = <1GB. The same problem was shown in the log:

 

This backup will fail because: abandoning =
restore
abandoning =
restore
Abandoning =
restore
Restore =
failed: abandoning restore

 

I have more questions than answers at this = point:

 - Am I seeing two different problems, or just = one?

 - Could this be related to https://bugzill= a.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3D563

 - Further, am I making a mistake trying to = use SMB here? I need restores to be reliable for me, and these failures scare = me!

 

Thanks in advance for your = thoughts!
