Backup test doesn't respect temp-dir parameter

Platform: Linux

It seems that temp-dir parameter isn’t being respected when running test, even if the debug log and input options show shows that tempdir is configured and should be used and the command-line parameter is correctly configured.

Pretty clear fail, default system temp is being used instead.

Does Linux TMPDIR environment variable mentioned under –tempdir (also note option spelling) do better?

Yes, environment variable works, but tempdir doesn’t when testing backups.

In general I like giving application specific settings to the specific application as parameter and not changing system environment variables.

  • Thanks, added to backup & test scripts, as well as unset at the end of the script
