Got Nethserver 6.6 set up yesterday after a few caveats with the network interfaces. I think the installer needs to be setup to configure both green and red (or more) zones before finishing, as extra interfaces cannot be configured from the web interface without some command line work. As a result, ONLY the LAN (green) is active, and any attempt to configure another ethernet card in the web interface from another machine on the LAN, defaults to the green zone. Red, Orange, and Blue zones are not available in the config. Nothing can be downloaded as the WAN (red) interface is not functional. Also it may be a plan to update the installer to permit a choice of standalone server or server/gateway type setup without having to go in and do it manually later.
Enough of that… there is a problem with the remote data backup using a CIFS host on the LAN. I created a shared (read/write) directory on the backup machine, and entered the IP address, directory, username, and password in the backup configuration on the NethServer web interface, but it seems the backup errors out before it gets started. Error message goes like this:
===== Report for data backup =====
Backup started at 2015-05-04 12:30:03
Pre backup scripts status: ERROR
Extract from log file /var/log/backup-data.log:
2015-05-04 12:30:03 - START - Backup data started
2015-05-04 12:31:17 - ERROR - Event pre-backup-data failed - 1
Any ideas on how to resolve this would be appreciated. (Incidentally, I backed up to the same machine with SME-Server 8.1 with the same configuration, and it worked fine) Thanks!
