Backup data not work after update to 6.8

I’ve updated a server to 6.8 but since that day the data backup doesn’t work.
ERROR - Error while mounting 192.168.1.180:BackDir : mount error(5): Input/output error Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

The “BackDir” is hosted on a Qnap Ts-253Pro with the last firmware, set on SMB 2,1 compatibility.

How to test manually why the mount fail ?

Edit: also with nethserver 6.9 the backup doesn’t work, the mount of the SMB share, fail.

You have some sort of problem on your QNAP or at the network level.

Please try

mount -t cifs -o username=administrator,password=MyPasword,domain=YourDomain //192.168.x.x/CifsName /MountPoint

There isn’t any problem on the network. Qnap is reachable from any other pc.

mount -t cifs -o username=administrator,password=MyPasword,domain=YourDomain //192.168.x.x/CifsName /MountPoint

There isn’t any domain, so i removed "domain=YourDomain"
mount -t cifs -o username="User",password="Mypassword" //192.168.1.180/BackupServer /mnt/test
The command give me an error:
-bash: MyPassword: event not found

Can be because password start with the symbol “!” ?

Yes, please try with \ before the “!”

yes, it works.
Any “!” had to be escaped by \.

Starting manually a backup with # backup-data, the mount of the remote backup share worked… but after 7 hour it’s still running… the last file loaded on the nas was 4 h ago… the processor isn’t loaded… from 1% to 8%… the last line of the log say: STEP - pre-backup-done done
Usually the night backup process take 5 hour.
Seems that duplicity is blocked… can be possible ?

Maybe, but I never seen it blocked.
Search for any duplicity process:

ps aux | grep duplicity

The duplicity process was loaded and “running”… but using 0% of cpu.
I killed the process and started a new backup.

When the backup rotation period is changed (1 month to 2 weeks), duplicity start with a new full backup ?

In future i will change the shared storage… btrfs o zfs are more promising. Do a snapshot and transfer require less time then backup with duplicity. To backup 200Gb duplicity takes 7 hour. With 1 TB of data will have a never ending backup (more than 24 hour to complete)

I guess yes, but I’m not sure.
