I have 6 windows machines on which Backuppc is working just fine. It's
making regular backups and everything is hunky-dory. I have 3 linux
machines with the problems mentioned earlier. Then I have 5 machines that
all give me a rather cryptic error message:
# Last status is state "idle" (backup failed) as of 11/6 15:03.
# Last error is "session setup failed: ERRDOS - ERRnoaccess (Access
That's from the CGI interface.
Can anyone tell me the exact definition of ERRnoaccess? I logged on to the
NT network as the unpriveleged user who backuppc is using to grab the
files, used the Windows explorer doohickey to navigate to the files I'm
trying to back up, and I can access them just fine that way. What
else would cause the error above?
(Note: I already checked, the username/password combo is the same on the
non-working machines as it is on the working machines.)
Thanks a bunch! :)

Under Windows, there are permissions defined on the share (click the
"Permissions" button on the "Sharing" tab under Folder Properties). Then
there are permissions set on the folder(s) as well (under "Security" tab
under Folder Properties). If a user doesn't have permissions on both, it'll
say Access Denied.
Rather than log in as the backup user on the NT machine, use smbclient from
the BackupPC machine in order to more closely simulate what's going on
For example, if your backup user is "backuppc" and you're trying to backup
folder "mydocs" on host "bugzilla":
smbclient //bugzilla/mydocs -U backuppc
It will then ask for your password. If it lets you log in, and you can see
files with a "dir", you've got things working properly.
