I wish to reboot the server but using the reboot now function in Webmin does nothing. I get the button saying "Reboot Now" but when I click it the page reloads and says rebooting (or whatever) but the server simply does not reboot.
I tried to do a "reboot -r now" in Putty. It says that it is going to reboot, but again, does nothing.
So I figured that the next stage would be to power cycle the box but before doing so I should take another backup to a different destination just in case the error is backed up as well.
When I went into "Filesystem backup" I started to enter details but realised that I was entering the wrong info and cancelled before I pressed the backup now button.
So far so good.
So I started again and specified the second drive in the server as a destination like this "/disk2/backup-27-01-10/"
Webmin reports the following :-
Performing backup of / to /disk2/backup-27-01-10/ ..
DUMP: Date of this level 0 dump: Wed Jan 27 09:02:48 2010
DUMP: Dumping /dev/hda3 (/) to /disk2/backup-27-01-10/
DUMP: Label: /
DUMP: Writing 10 Kilobyte records
DUMP: mapping (Pass I) [regular files]
DUMP: mapping (Pass II) [directories]
DUMP: estimated 14077429 blocks.
DUMP: Cannot open output "/disk2/backup-27-01-10/": Is a directory
This has been like that for a long time. I have looked in "Runnung Processes and find :
Under CPU :
10839 root 8.9 % dump -0 -f /disk2/backup-27-01-10/ -F /etc/webmin/fsdump/notape.pl 1082712645829 ...
10834 root 09:02 /usr/libexec/webmin/fsdump/backup.cgi

(time now is 11:00)
So, my question is Is the line "Cannot open output" fatal or should I just let this run.
Or should I take some other action I should take?
CentOS Linux 5.4
Webmin version 1.500
Virtualmin version 3.76 Pro
