Stop backup in progress

NethServer Version: 7.5.1804
Module: backup

I have a backup configured against a remote vpn.
The process is very slow (10 days)
We are changing to a local device but when launching the backup it indicates that there is another previous one in process.

Is it possible to stop the current copy without causing problems?

What is the correct way to do it?

Maybe this helps

I think you can retrieve the PID of the backup with “top” command (you’ll see “duplicity” process) and then kill it with this command: kill -SIGTERM pidnumber


I am also the one facing the same backup problem against my remote VPN. Thanks to you for sharing such relevant information.
