Consistent Error: Issue 1400

bug

#1

Since upgrading to 2.0.4.5, I have ONE backup consistently erroring out with

Errors: 
 [ 2019-01-08 15:29:38 -05 - [Error-Duplicati.Library.Main.Database.LocalBackupDatabase-CheckingErrorsForIssue1400]:

I have rebuilt the database from scratch twice, to no avail.

What can be done about this?

Thank you for seeing if rebuild would help avoid it. Especially if you’re on Windows, have you tried setting the –snapshot-policy option to on or some similar value that attempts to freeze a view of the changing filesystem?

#3

My snapshot was set globally to Auto. I have switched it to On to get log warnings if it’s failing on this one backup.

BTW: The machine is Linux, not Windows.


#4

Welp. Getting snapshot creation failures on all three backups running here.
2019-01-12 15:14:29 -05 - [Warning-Duplicati.Library.Main.Operation.BackupHandler-SnapshotFailed]: Failed to create a snapshot: System.Exception: The external command failed to start. Error message: Duplicati.Library.Interface.UserInformationException: The script returned exit code 255, but 0 was expected: Exit code: 255 Error: unable to determine volume group (VG) for /home/david/

PLUS the Error 1400 on the same one that has been.


#5

Is your system using LVM? Snapshot will not work without it.


#6

It is not. I will turn off snapshot.

Due for a rebuild, anyway :slight_smile:
