NethServer Version: 7.5.
Module: backup / duplicity
Hi my beloved support team,
after understanding that USB HDD is mounted before and umounted after a backup, I got another problem for using a 1.8 TB external HDD:
This is a typical windows device as available from stores. It wears (I formatted) ntfs or exfat as file system. But both are not recogniced / mounted during backup:
2018-07-19 06:20:03 - ERROR - Error while mounting /Volume : mount: unknown filesystem type ‘ntfs’
2018-07-19 06:20:05 - ERROR - Event pre-backup-data failed - 1
2018-07-19 19:30:34 - ERROR - Error while mounting /Volume : mount: unknown filesystem type ‘exfat’
2018-07-19 19:30:36 - ERROR - Event pre-backup-data failed - 1
So my Idea was to use cfdisk to format the HDD differently. I tried ext4 but …
The HDD was not recognised as an USB device from the web panel anymore.
How can I use this HDD for backup? If there is a mount command during backup, what file system is supposed to be mounted? How would I proceed without detaching the device from nethserver (Reason: Nethserver is running on Proxmox with a passed through USB port)
