System Configuration Backup - Configuration backup settings won't adjust upon save


I was trying to adjust the retention # of days from 3 to 5 (any number) but when selecting “Save” after input the dialog box in Cockpit doesn’t go away and only a little small circle to the left of the “Cancel” button appears briefly. Exiting & re-entering the dialog box does not retain the desired changes. I am using Firefox latest update.


Hi @royceb, I can reproduce.
Tomorrow I will investigate on it.

Here is the issue


@royceb, could you test the fix by @federico.ballarini?

Run this command to install the package to test:

yum -y --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-cockpit\*

Not sure if the update got pushed or is availble to me yet.

[root@ns1 ~]# yum -y --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-cockpit\*

You’re right, the package was missing from the testing repo (due to an upstream mirror issue, but that’s another story…).

Now it should work. But clear YUM cache before:

 yum --enablerepo=nethserver-testing clean all
 yum -y --enablerepo=nethserver-testing update nethserver-cockpit\*

If you’re behind a web proxy more parameters are needed: let me know…

Just updated and verified the bug has been fixed. Thank you.
