Kopano-backup errors merging backups

  • Hi All,

    We are storing our backup in /share/kopano_backup on a CentOS 7 server running Kopano version 8.6.9
    I’ve created 3 differential backups to test the merge function for user cbe, the backups are in /share/kopano_backup/differential/cbe/1 to 3
    When I run the command "kopano-backup --merge cbe I get the error “please specify path to backup data”
    When I use the -O option to specify the path I get the same error
    Next I cd to /share/kopano_backup/differnetial and try again (without specifying the path) then I get this error:

    2019-09-04 08:01:20,633 - backup - ERROR - Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/kopano/log.py”, line 90, in log_exc
    try: yield
    File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/kopano/service.py”, line 183, in start
    _daemon_helper(self.main, self, self.log)
    File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/kopano/service.py”, line 60, in _daemon_helper
    File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/kopano_backup/init.py”, line 402, in main
    File “/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/kopano_backup/init.py”, line 555, in merge
    diff_ids = sorted((x for x in os.listdir(diff_base)), key=lambda x: int(x))
    OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘differential/cbe’

    It’s driving me crazy, is ther anybody out there who can tell me what I’m doing wrong here.

    Hi @acha,

    @acha said in Kopano-backup errors merging backups:

    running Kopano version 8.6.9

    can you check on 8.7.5 to see if the error is present there as well? If yes please get in touch with our support to create a ticket for it.

  • Hi Felix,

    As soon as I have the time I’ll give it a try and let you know the outcome.

    Thanks for your help so far.
