IS this contrib still supported?

Can someone please tell me why it won't be working?

Softdux,

"works like a charm" ... see RequestedDeletion's post just before your's.

You do not have to read 7 pages go straight to the manual:
http://wiki.contribs.org/Affa

In your case most likely you have to start affa immediately - or "wait till 22:30" (like the manual says)
(try affa --status) :cool:

Regards
Reinhold




P.S.: Actually this is all that's needed from 0 to a full backup-thingy
Code: [Select]
/usr/bin/yum install --enablerepo=smecontribs smeserver-affa

db affa set prodserv job
db affa setprop prodserv remoteHostName _prodIP_
db affa setprop prodserv RPMCheck yes

affa --send-key prodserv

affa --run prodserv
_prodIP_ = 192.x.x.x = your production server ip
to be found as:
http://wiki.contribs.org/Moving_SME_to_new_Hardware

Correction: unless you want to use a usb disk (like in your case)
where you need to set the directory(like you did)
...but is affa really meant for this ... imho ... not really
please read Michael Weinberger manual compare with dar

Did you try affa --run backup  ??? (not a really meaningful name if you ask me ;) )

[root@test2 ~]# affa --send-keys test1
Error: Job 'test1' undefined
Error 2329: Error: Job 'test1' undefined

Ok, so two clean installed servers ? What dumb thing have I done now ? I thought I followed the instructions to the letter ?

Infamy, Infamy, they all have it in for me!
