Follow-up Comment #6, bug #20570 (project rdiff-backup):


The are two reasons why I believe that it is a network failure and not
rdiff-backup's fault:

- Both "rdiff-backup_failure_output.txt" and
"rdiff-backup_failure_output(2).txt" end with:

Read from remote host mozsmachine: Connection reset by peer
Fatal Error: Lost connection to the remote system

and no exception traceback from rdiff-backup. If rdiff-backup had failed, it
would have printed a traceback or otherwise informative error message

- Secondly, the file error_log.2007-07-23T22:59:25+12:00.data.gz is empty and
compressed. This only occurs under two conditions: the backup failed two
complete AND the backup failed due to a cause outside rdiff-backup

I don't know why a copy using CIFS would work while rdiff-backup running over
SSH would fail.

If you download the rdiff-backup source from CVS or wait until 1.1.13
(probably within the next week), you should be able to backup to a directory
mounted over CIFS.

BTW, thanks for the earlier CIFS error report. That was most helpful.
