  • Linux support coming?

    I installed BLBackup on my HS3 linux VM and it installs just fine. I setup an event and when I kick it off nothing happens. I'm running HS3 has linux user "hs3" out of the /home/hs3 directory. My backup destination directory is a NFS mounted directory on /home/bkup/hs3 which is user/group owned by hs3 with 664 permissions.

    Is Linux supported? If so, any log files I can look at to see what is happening (or not happening)?

    It should work fine in Linux. I have it in Linux just fine.
    Check the [HS root]\bin\BLBlackup folder
    Tell me what is in that folder
    What DLLs exist in the hs3 root folder?

      I included the home and backup directory information so you can see the user/group and permissions information for the HS3 installation and backup destination.

      root@p-vubuhs301:/home/hs3/HomeSeer/bin/BLBackup# ls -l /home | grep hs3
      drwxr-xr-x 3 hs3 hs3 4096 Jan 17 11:22 hs3

      root@p-vubuhs301:/home/hs3/HomeSeer/bin/BLBackup# ls -l /home/bkup | grep hs3
      drw-rw-r-- 2 hs3 hs3 4096 Jul 5 16:11 hs3

      root@p-vubuhs301:/home/hs3/HomeSeer/bin/BLBackup# cat /etc/fstab | grep bkup /home/bkup nfs nouser,rsize=8192,wsize=8192,atime,auto,rw,dev,exec,suid 0 0

        I just tried to run the backup again and am getting this message in the log... strange that I didn't get this message yesterday.
        Jul-06 11:00:51 AM BLBackup Warning You have not set a backup folder for the plug-in. Please specify the backup folder on the Options page!
        I changed the permissions to 777 for the /home/bkup and /home/bkup/hs3 directories just to make sure I didn't have an issue there... still not working. Does it matter that /home/bkup is a NFS mount?

        root@p-vubuhs301:/home# ls -l /home | grep bkup
        drwxrwxrwx 17 hs3 hs3 4096 Jul 6 01:19 bkup

          You need to set a destination folder in the options page.
          Is one set?
          I ran another backup on my PI2 this weekend and it worked fine

            That was it - all fixed. I thought putting the "Destination Folder" in the "Backup Directories" configuration screen was where that was setup. Thanks for clarifying. All is good. Thanks!!

              You need a destination folder in the main options page
              If you put one in the event action it will use that otherwise it will use the one in the options
