[Rdiff-Backup] Running Rdiff-Backup from Cron
Tue, 16 Apr 2002 11:15:58 -0700
We are trying to run a back up job from Cron. We get an error, Rdiff
shows defunct in Top and Python2 is still running. The error we get in
the log is as follows.....
Exception [Errno 32] Broken pipe raised of class exceptions.IOError
File "/usr/bin/rdiff-backup", line 4463, in patch_increment_and_finalize
try: dsrp = cls.check_skip_error(error_checked)
File "/usr/bin/rdiff-backup", line 4473, in check_skip_error
try: return thunk()
File "/usr/bin/rdiff-backup", line 4457, in error_checked
Our entry in Crontab...
rdiff-backup -v5 email@example.com::/var/
Running the same command from the command line runs perfectly.
Anyone had any experience with this?
