Hi, I have made all the hacking, but, how can I start the cloud backup?
Could you please check if are there any errors inside /var/log/messages?
It looks like it tries to mount a CIFS

Exactly, did you configured also the CIFS destination?
If yes, the mount must work before proceeding.
This customized version of backup will try to execute the normal backup at first, then execute also the cloud backup.
The server is on the cloud. I tried with everything, but nothing worked. Now the autobackup is disabled, but it always tries to mount a CIFS

You may have a look at the backup-data configuration in the web UI and check if the settings are correct and if you can connect to the share:
I don’t need any local backup, also because I don’t have the possibility to do it…
What about using default backup via webdav?
I have troubles installing a certificate in my QNAP device.
Could you please post the output of config show backup--data?
config show backup--data
Please bear in mind you’re trying to use a non-standard procedure, so you need to dig a little bit by your own.
On the same path, you could also try to use rsync for backup instead of the built one. You could take inspiration from this script:
You should be able to workaround the mount problem by executing this command:
config setprop backup-data VFSType ""
But I didn’t test it.
It didn’t work …
