I copied over the host (backuppc)'s public key file (the same one generated above), and appended it to the second client laptop's authorized_keys2 file. I hope this helps, let me know if you want me to downgrade again and run some more tests.

not bad! thanks for the help to all on this one. See this blog post for more info, particularly the first comment: http://wildbill.nulldevice.net/wordpress/?p=198 That fixed it for me. I generated ssh keys on both the client (laptop) and host (backuppc), exchanged public keys and appended to the authorized_keys2 and known_hosts files. https://sourceforge.net/p/backuppc/mailman/message/20135219/
If BackupPC doesn't tell you then try running rsync yourself. You've got to check the logs. Nils Breunese. It seems like I am missing gifs for the web server or something.
When I try to initiate a backup, it fails, with the following error message (I included -v to get errors listed): Running: /usr/bin/ssh -q -v -l root robert-laptop /usr/bin/rsync --server --sender If you're using SSH keys you need to OK the host fingerprint the first time you login, which BackupPC cannot do for you.

Robert [BackupPC-users] Got fatal error during xfer (fileListReceive failed) From: Terri Kelley
I can't solve that without seeing the logs. http://www.backupcentral.com/phpBB2/two-way-mirrors-of-external-mailing-lists-3/backuppc-21/got-fatal-error-during-xfer-filelistreceive-failed-92086/ Can someone give me a pointer where to look for the problem?

You probably have something like "Fatal error (bad version): sudo: bla" in there, where "bla" is the sudo error message. I have noticed that removing these files seems to help, but that is not a practical solution. By adding >>>> the "-A" and "-X" to the "RsyncArgs" list.

The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required: libboost-thread1.34.1 libboost-date-time1.34.1 Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded. Anyway, will look into that and start a new thread if need. have a peek at these guys When logged in as backuppc on the host (backuppc) PC, executing ssh -l root 192.168.0.9 whoami gives the output root without being prompted for root's password.
I then tried to set up a second Ubuntu 7.04 laptop. Stay logged in Sign up now! But looks like another issue.
How is BackupPC supposed to know and input the password for root on the other machine? Terri Thread view [BackupPC-users] Got fatal error during xfer (fileListReceive failed) From: Robert Saunders

Please don't fill out this field. The two linux machines are running a config.pl that is backing up using rsync. Peace, JimBass JimBass View Public Profile View LQ Blog View Review Entries View HCL Entries Find More Posts by JimBass Page 1 of 2 1 2 > Thread Tools
