I have a customer in Germany who would like to backup his Nethserver data to a Strato cloud called HiDrive. The access to this cloud works from regular Linux systems via rsync and via sftp and scp… but… it does NOT work via the backup solution in NethServer.
SFTP User: xxxxx (the user name allocated in HiDrive)
SFTP password: yyyyy ( I defined a password for the user)
SFTP Directory: /users/xxxxx/backup
I tried that from the terminal with a regular sftp command and a regular rsync command three times… and even more times in the graphical interface to configure a regular backup… The regular terminal commands worked… it should not be a problem of the destination. It does not work in the graphical interface to configure a NethServer backup graphically.
As mentioned, I did not only double-check but did at least a triple-check… has anyone an idea how to proceed?
AFAIK, the StratoBackup does not work because while you have read and write permissions, NethServer Backup requires also Execute permissions. I am not sure because the last attempt was a while ago, but as far as I recall, there was no solution.
If I recalled correctly, the user used a cloud hosted “root” server and created his own solution, which worked with NethServers Backup…
As such, this statement is not as correct as the first statement, because NethServer Backup can be setup via GUI, just not for Strato HiDrive!
thank you very much… it works… I had to remove the directory “backup” that I created myself. In the URL I specified the username as last entry, started the backup and a directory was created in HiDrive with the hostname of the server.
