Backup on FTP directly, bypassing the local repository on the Prime.

I am getting the error, even tho I have good amount of disk space.

Can someone help me take a backup on FTP directly, bypassing the local repository on the Prime.

admin/admin#

admin/admin# backup backupFeb20th2014 repository defaultRepo application NCS

% Creating backup with timestamped filename: backupFeb20th2014-140220-1205.tar.gpg

INFO : Cannot configure the backup directory size settings as the free space available is less than the current database size.

You do not have enough disk space available in your repository to complete this backup.

DB size is 45 GB

Available size is 26 GB

Please refer to the command reference guide for NCS and look at the /backup-staging-url/ command reference to setup the backup repository on an externally mounted location

Well you only have 26.5GB available and the DB shows it needs 45GB.

you should also know this this code is effected with this bug

CSCue35666 which corrupts the oracle database from time to time, i doubt if this has something to do with the bug.

Re: Backup on FTP directly, bypassing the local repository on th

Process for backing up NCS database of external server.

1.configure your windows as NFS server, hanewin is easiest to find and operate.

2.mount the NFS root folder with NCS

[root@admin ~]# mount 10.85.6.37:/mywinshare /mnt/nfs

3.define the staging folder.

conf t

backup-staging-url nfs://10.85.6.37:/staging

4.make sure you can see all the files in NFS root folder from NCS, if mouting is good.

[root@admin ~]# cd /mnt/nfs

[root@admin nfs]# ls

5.Create a new Repo with url pointing to NFS server root folder.

admin/admin(config)# repo FEB202014

admin/admin(config-Repository)# url nfs://10.85.6.37:/mywinshare

6.start the backup process via CLI or GUI.
