I have UCS Manager Version 2.2(1c)
I set up configuration backup via SCP, and Im getting error.
Destination is accessible from other computer in same VLAN via WinSCP.
I need help what exactly is causing that error from UCS Manager, and how to solve this issue.
I tried to delete and again add backup job operation.
[FWS:FAILED]: internal system backup
I am waiting for quick replay.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Does scp work from the host you connect to UCSM ?
What OS for scp server
any firewall ?
I assume you never get to the point, where you have to enter a pw ?
I am able to connect from some other server (Windows Server) to that SCP backup server (Linux)
Both hosts I mean UCS Manager, Backup Linux server, and Windows Server are in the same VLAN. (management). So there is no firewall.
What do you mean
"I assume you never get to the point, where you have to enter a pw ?"
Cheers and I am waiting for quick replay.
Can you please post a screenshot of the backup configuration, as well as the full error message !
Would you mind trying this with CLI
SSH to the Fabric Interconnect
Change to the system scope by typing “scope system”
create backup scp://firstname.lastname@example.org/home/ucsbackup/fabricInterconnectName_all_configuration.bak all-configuration enabled
Go back to the scope system (type exit)
Note: ucsbackup is the username you login to your SCP server with. After each create backup command is issued you will be required to put in the password, this is a onetime process.
Yes, I sorry, i forgot provide output from CLI.
I tried to push
FABRIC(local-mgmt)# copy workspace:/techsupport/some_date_here.tar scp://ucsbackup@some_IP_address
no matching cipher found: client aes128-cbc,3des-cbc,aes192-cbc,aes256-cbc,email@example.com server aes128-ctr,aes192-ctr,aes256-ctr
With your hints, i did and ...
FABRIC /system # create backup scp://ucsbackup@here_is_IP_ADDRESS/home/ucsbacku p/fabricInterconnectName_all_configuration.bak all-configuration enabled
Password: [here i typed password of course]
FABRIC /system/backup* #
FABRIC /system/backup* # exit
[ucsbackup@some_backup_server ~]$ ls -la

As you can see, empty
If I understand you correctly, with CLI, you can connect to the scp server (therefore network connectivity is ok), enter a pw, and the backup finishes without an error message, the proper file is created, but it is empty ? correct ?
Not sure, that one sees a progress bar !
Did you just out of curiosity try another method, like ftp, tftp,.....or even to the local system.
I know scp has been done in the past; not myself however !
I didnt check other methods.
Could you provide some example of local system...
Maybe there is a problem with ssh certificates ? on ucs side ? maybe same linux side, i dont know....
