Change mount point of Backup cache folder

this week I had a problem with backup. saturday night nethserver do a new complete backup, but this operation filled the root partition and lock sssd and httpd-admin login.
I had this problem with zentyal several years ago.

[root@samba ~]# df -kh

now i have moved

[root@samba home]# mv /var/lib/nethserver/backup/ /var/lib/nethserver/home/

and stopped Backup Data

[root@samba home]# cat /et/fstab

i have insert in

[root@samba home]# nano /etc/backup-data.d/custom.exclude

for the same reason I’ve already had to move the user home partition
what is the best way to change this mount point?

I didn’t get the whole post, but you can change the backup mount point using the Mount property:

The command is:

config setprop backup-data /mnt/whatever

Sorry but my problem is the “Archive” not the Destination (in my case NFS)
duplicity collection-status --no-encryption --archive-dir /var/lib/nethserver/backup/duplicity/

The default program used for backup is duplicity using the globbing file list feature. Encryption is disabled and duplicity cache is stored in /var/lib/nethserver/backup/duplicity/ directory. We plan to support all duplicity features in the near future.

The over 30 Gb of Duplicity Cache filled my 50Gb root partition
I backup 800 Gb of data

The only solution is changing the script, but you will loose any change after an update of nethserver-backup-data package.

If you have enough space in a local disk, you could mount a partition directly to /var/lib/nethserver/backup/duplicity/

Here is the code which needs to be changed:

I know, duplicity cache is really bad, but I don’t have a better solution right now.

Ok thanks
