file backups failing

I am trying to backup one particular directory on the server: /home/teamspeak

This is not a virtual server but simply where another program resides that i want to backup.

here are the settings;

TAR filesystem backup details Backup format Unix TAR Directories to backup
/home/teamspeak Backup to File or tape device

Host as user root in file or device /home/backup/teamspeak/ Remote backup command Default (RSH) SSH FTP Password for SSH/FTP login
••••••••••••••••• Backup options Backup label
teamspeak Tape size Work out automatically
kB Files and directories to skip
Compress archive? Split across multiple files? Yes No Follow symbolic links? Yes No Limit backup to one filesystem? Yes No Prompt for new tape if needed? Yes No Just add new files to archive? Yes No Ignore read errors on files? Yes No Remount with noatime option during backup? Yes No Path to rmt on remote system Default
Attempt test restore after backup to verify? Yes No Extra command-line parameters
Command to run before backup

Halt if command fails Command to run after backup

Report failure if command fails Skip command even if backup fails

The error i get is: Performing backup of /home/teamspeak to .. tar: Removing leading `/' from member names's password: bash: /etc/rmt: No such file or directory tar (child): Cannot open: Input/output error tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now .. backup failed!



Howdy -- what is the "Remote backup command" option set to? Is that using RSH?

If so, you may want to try SSH or FTP.

Alternatively, it looks like the error it's throwing is that the "rmt" command isn't available on the remoge system... you could always try installing that.
