Post rdiff-backup failed: error 31 
Hi

I'm trying to get a backup of a 3TB partition and it failed with this error

Exception '[Errno 31] Too many links:
'/rdiff/newarsvrfs01/htdocs/chase.archinetonline.com/chasedata/project_89381''
raised of class 'exceptions.OSError':

This has been working ok for a while and then we had a problem with the
RAID being degrated. we fixed the raid issue and the backups never
worked again. I have even tried to do a fresh backup on a new
partition/location but we get the same error

any ideas what the problem could be? we havent changed anything on our
backup server.

PS: Im using rdiff-backup 1.2.8


JP.

Try running rdiff-backup with --no-eas option (unless you need extended
attributes), and see if this helps.

Thanks, but that did not work. I still got the same error.

Are you sure the source filesystem is error-free? This error seems to be rarely seen with rdiff-backup so I suspect something unusual in your setup.

no errors in the source server

I have two raid controllers and both working ok is just a big partition that i have to backup

/dev/mapper/volgroup-volume01
15T 3.0T 11T 22% /data

the backup server had some issues but it was fixed so I tried to run rdiff-backup on a new partition/directory but is not working Sad
