in most cases, it doesn´t give any sense to back them up, anyway.

I've got this ghetto script going on that launches backup jobs as separate jobs, I'm just wondering if there isn't a better way and if anyone has done this before that It doesn't make much sense to back them up anyway, IMHO. -- Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages. reply via email to [Prev in Thread] Current Thread [Next in Thread] Re: [rdiff-backup-users] Socket error: AF_UNIX path too long, GabrielNar<= Re: [rdiff-backup-users] Socket error: AF_UNIX path too long, Chris Wilson, Fri Jan 19, 2007 8:44 am roland Guest error : af_unix path too long afaik, rdiff-backup cannot handle unix domain sockets.

most applications will (re-)create those files at runtime. http://unordic.com/socket-error/socket-error-10038-the-descriptor-is-not-a-socket.html Dr. Using "--exclude-sockets" is effectively the same as saying Joe> the file no longer exists (which is equivalent to deleting the Joe> file). You can avoid this message by removing the rdiff-backup-data directory; however any data in it will be lost.

The workaround is limited to Linux. I worked around it by using less and shorter directory names. The path exceeds 108 characters which appears to be the UNIX_PATH_MAX. http://unordic.com/socket-error/socket-error-10038-socket-operation-on-non-socket.html On restore, rdiff-backup will > > attempt to recreate the socket by using the stored metadata. > > > > If rdiff-backup is *not* finishing correctly, please send the complete >

I think juju should enforce a maximum service name length at deploy time and also the path to the socket should be shortened as it currently seems to duplicate the service What is the path you are trying to back them upto? (the path to the backup mirror)The backup all goes into a subfolder on the mirror machine.I just counted 21 characters

Ofcourse it is questionable to back up sockets, so there was advice touse --exclude-sockets,Hi Steve,I don't think any users have had trouble with --exclude-socketsrecently.
