My offsite backup server disk set crashed so I had to re upload everything. One of the jobs takes many days so to not lock my local server’s daily backup jobs I started this job from another local computer, backing up the same files. The original local computer is windows, backing up from local disk. The temporary local computer was Debian backing up the same files over a network mount to the original computer.
So when this job had run I went and started the job on the original computer. And got this which I undertstand completely:
The backup contains files that belong to another operating system. Proceeding with a backup would cause the database to contain paths from two different operation systems, which is not supported. To proceed without losing remote data, delete all filesets and make sure the --no-auto-compact option is set, then run the backup again to re-use the existing data on the remote store.
So I removed the three dlist files that were on the remote server, set the no-auto-compact option in the job and restarted it.
But I still get the exact same error message? What am I doing wrong here?
