Backup of Samba share

Level 4

Hi all,

I have a linux machine backup_1 over which I use to take the backup of all the linux machines in my datacenter using rdiff-backup. Then on the machine backup_1 I have configured the Samba for the directory which has the backup of all the linux machines and now I have added this samba share in Backup Exec under "user define", the machine backup_1 does not has the backup client install over it.


Now the problem is, when I take the backup of all linux machines over Backup_1, all the symbolic links turn wrong as the source is changed and when backup exec takes the backup of that samba share I have tons of error about all the symbolic links as they are wrong. I have been taking the backup of all original files so I want to skip the symbolic links !!! How can I do so ??? Any ideas ?

Note: I don't have the client installed over backup_1

Have you tried unchecking these options in your backup job?

If the above does not work, then see this document

You would not be able to see the options in the document unless you are licenced to backup Linux servers.
