Unable to backup fs to freebsd NAS


Until now, i was backing up my system to a Debian based NAS using SSH, it has been working very well for about 3 years. Now, i installed a new FreeNAS NAS and i want to send backups to this new device.

I created a user with writing permissions over target directory and verified that i can write after login by SSH. I can create both directories and files without problems.

after that, i modified my webmin scheduled backups, I changed user and password, because IP is the same and test new configuration.

I get this error:

Cannot open: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Backup failed!

I tried to change rmt directory from default to /etc/rmt. If i look for rmt on my NAS i get multiple results:

/etc/rmt /usr/sbin/rmt

I dont know what i have to choose or if one of them is a link. But seem rmt is not the problem.

I dont what to try now...

Hi Again,

Virtual server are backing up correctly. Only filesystem backups are failing. Maybe is trying to do an incremental backup and is not finding the old backup file?
