Debugging why link-dest is not showing up
March 20, 2015 12:13PM
I have a multi-backup point backup and the fourth one is not passing a —link-dest. In my situation, this is a 1tb replication of data, so I can’t live with that. How do I debug why it is not being included?

Running rsnapshot 1.3.1
sync_first is not being mentioned in the config file (off, right?)
link_dest is on and is working for all of the rest of the backups.
hourly.1 DOES contain the directory in full from the previous backup.
Offending directory has full read access and exists on local filesystem

Relevant lines follow.

backup /etc/ localhost/
backup /opt/etc/ localhost/
backup /var/log/ localhost/
backup /volume1/1/ localhost/
backup /volume1/2/ localhost/
backup /volume1/3/ localhost/
backup /volume1/4/ localhost/
backup /volume1/5/ localhost/
backup /volume1/6/ localhost/

Output is as follows:

[20/Mar/2015] /opt/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --link-dest=/volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.1/localhost/ /etc /volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.0/localhost/
[20/Mar/2015] /opt/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --link-dest=/volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.1/localhost/ /opt/etc /volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.0/localhost/
[20/Mar/2015] /opt/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --link-dest=/volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.1/localhost/ /var/log /volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.0/localhost/
[20/Mar/2015] /opt/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded --link-dest=/volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.1/localhost/ /volume1/1 /volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.0/localhost/
[20/Mar/2015] /opt/bin/rsync -a --delete --numeric-ids --relative --delete-excluded /volume1/2 /volume2/rsnapshot_root/hourly.0/localhost/

… and the rest would proceed with —link-dest here.

Thoughts?
