I have searched the forums but was not able to find a topic that addressed my situation. I can’t get Nethserver to create backups of my system configuration. I will select the “Run now” button with a Successful run notification, however the backed up configuration doesn’t show in the Details section nor does it list anything to download. I have my nethserver setup just the way I want it, but I’m afraid that if something goes down or breaks, I won’t have anyway to recover my setup.
Maybe reinstalling Nethserver is a solution however, I can’t risk it considering I have no configuration backup to restore. I’m all ears. Thanks for your help!
Thanks dnutan. I followed another post enabling “testing repo” hoping it would fix my issue. However I’d rather not have testing repos active. I would like the server to be as stable as possible. How do I remove testing repo? I really am not as ignorant as I seem. I have plenty of experience with Debian based distros. I’m a fish out of water with Redhat/CentOS based.
So far I’ve verified code from gitlab. I’ve done a yum clean all and update. Rebooted. Still no joy. It is still showing 0 backups after using the run now button. Just for posterity here is my /var/lib/nethserver/backup folder contents…

The weird part is that the backup-config.tar.xz files were updated with the timestamp of my attempt to backup. Yet the GUI does not show any backups.
