I have a BackupPC Server pulling backups from a Gentoo Linux machine (ext3 fs). This fails sporadically throwing errors like this
2014-06-10 12:00:19 full backup started for share uni 2014-06-10 12:03:43 Got fatal error during xfer (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \\*) 2014-06-10 12:03:48 Backup aborted (NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED listing \\*)
into the log.
It is an authority problem: Going to the target base folder and saying something drastic like
chmod -R a+r *
solves it for some time.
However, the target user in question sometimes creates files which have only read-access for himself (then again, why shouldn't he?).
Naturally it would be okay if such files are excluded from the backup. But here comes the question: Is there any way to rig backuppc such that the error above is turned into a mere warning, not stopping the rest of the backup?
