Backup data are stored as - mount action error

NethServer Version: 7.3.1611
Module: BackupData

Hi, ehm, sry! But I’ve a share on my little banana-PI and thereon a share with allot of data…

And now I wana just be 100% sure, that the Backup Data on the same share will not delete or do other bad things to my data. Yes, of course I could backup these data first - but for that I have to leave my place at the warm oven and have to go in the cold cold cellar…



Moin Maddin,

what is the problem for the NS backup to create a new share?
Please note that RC is not final.



Moin Uwe,

normally not - but I forgot to say, that my last configuring a share is 1,5 years ago. And as i remember there is also to do some user, user-groups etc. and me and terminal…

So I thought it would be something useful to know, what’s happens to the chosen share :slight_smile:

But if my question is so stupid - I go creating a new share.


Hi All,

now I’ve a new share but also the next problem:


2016-12-31 18:03:18 - START - Backup data started
 2016-12-31 18:03:24 - STEP - pre-backup-done done

thx for help


Hi @maddin.
I am sorry for the late reply. :sweat:

I see that you nethserver ip , the backup folder is on (different network). are you sure it is accessible from nethserver? you can not mount the share on which to store data

Hi @enzoturri

better late than never…thx!

No, I’m not sure if I can mnt it through firewall! I’ll give my best to test manually.

But I remembered that I can’t create a directory in /mnt/backup/ with user root. Directly under /mnt/ no problem.

And thank you for your comprehension - beneath my bad English you have to handle my second problem, - my knowledge in linux:D.

Try with:
umount /mnt/backup/

which errors do you see?

hi, @alefattorini,

done - without error - or does I have to look in some *.log?!

Under WIN 10 I’m able to create a directory on the share


Sorry for the stupid question but Windows 10 uses the user “nsbackup”?


and yes, I connect with the user nsbackup.


After you type the command


if you type


you see in the list the /mnt/backup?

In one case, I had to specify in addition to the backup user, the name of domain/name pc destination.

where pc-vtur is the name of destination pc.


for me it seems ok!?

// on /mnt/backup type cifs (rw,relatime,vers=1.0,cache=strict,username=nsbackup,domain=LEMAKER,uid=0,noforceuid,gid=0,noforcegid,addr=,file_mode=0755,dir_mode=0755,nounix,serverino,mapposix,rsize=61440,wsize=65536,echo_interval=60,actimeo=1)

But, I’m not sure who is the owner of the share - thought it’s the user nsbackup…I trie to find out´!


hi @enzoturri

nsbackup is owner and I tried out to use the domain in addition to the user(“nsbackup,domain=LEMAKER”) - no success.

Any idea what I can do wrong?



Can you try with a different shared folder?

Hi Alessio,

At the moment I have the same problem when I mount the share manually, I read about it and I think it’s a centos 7 issue!

Sry, family and work took my time… I will try to find out soon as possible.

Well, I had to assign the write permission to all users.

As I said, under WIn 10 I used the samba share without problems by the user nsbackup!?

But for me it’s ok now.

Thx for your time.
