Deleted host in reports
August 02, 2016 11:01AM
I created a host, tried one backup (which failed), then decided to delete
the host. It's no longer in the hosts list. Yet it keeps showing up in the
failed backups email I get, and it's listed in the queue of backups to do.
Running BackupPC-3.3.0-2.el6.x86_64 on Centos 6. I'm removing the directory
/var/lib/BackupPC/<hostname> to see if that fixes it. That directory
contained only files LOCK, LOG.072016, and XferLOG.bad.z.

I manually removed the per-host file in the config pc subdirectory, but I'm
still seeing the error in the nightly email. I suspect the server isn't
re-reading the updated config that lacks the obsolete host.

I'll try restarting the server (interrupting current backups) to see if
forcing reloading the config will make it go away.
