Problems with backup over nfs

(Enrico Lorenzi) #1

Hi everybody,

I’m trying to setup data backup over NFS server on a Freenas 9.3 nas. On freenas I have an harddrive shared as /nas/esterno with all network allowed.
On nethserver backup ip of freenas and shared folder /mnt/esterno
this is the last-bakup log
Import of duplicity.backends.dpbxbackend Failed: No module named dropbox
Lettura dell’elenco file globbing /tmp/RjBdvVR2qk
[Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘/mnt/backup/nas’

why it’s using a different folder ???

That is the name of the local mount point.

You can check if the NFS share is working using this command:


Then, you can access your share via /mnt/backup.
To umount the share:

It’s a write permission erron on Freenas.
Freenas with nfs share sometimes made me nervus :smile:
which user of nethserver I need to create on freenas and gave write permissions ?

NFS works on IP authentication so I think you should add NethServer IP on Freenas NFS configuration
