I am unable to backup remotely using ssh I have tried three different servers and all of them are failing when I execute the test to see if all is fine. Has anyone got any ideas what might be the problem?
Im running Ubuntu 6.06 LTS.
On my installation Ubuntu 6.06 and now Edgy, this worked without problems. Did you use a key for authentication?
For me it was the folder permissions on the Samba share. I was trying to ssh to remhost/mnt/netshare2/backups/test/. I removed "test/" and the test still failed. Removed "backups/" and it worked... diff was the "others" didn't have rw on backups or test. Did a "sudo chmod a+rw backups" and then same on test and test works.
However, since I'm providing it a userid:pw that should give it root access I don't know why the test requires rw at "others" level??
