affa is just about ready to go, just needs people to test and use..then add comments to the Bug

https://bugs.koozali.org/show_bug.cgi?id=11024

I think this needs to be tested as well

Ok I can do so time on testing I starting today to will do some testing so if find and bugs I will record/report.
We have some custom designed scripts that run on Windows using rsync so will test those and well and report bugs via the Bugzilla.

Might be able to help for a few hours a week - I have modified the Affa script to customise (SME 9.2) i.e.
  • send email (I see this is added in V3 of Affa
    Added parameter to conf to read email and backup job id

Cool!

This would be excellent, it was/is the main area left to sort, windows using rsync...

We know it backups up.

It's the restore that needs testing.

It's the restore that needs testing.

Windows back software we use has no automated or user controllable options for restoring data, so can't test the windows restore only backup. i.e. we do restores manual when required.

Linux we will be doing a full test restore/migration of a SME 9.2 system later next week will note any bugs found etc.

One minor thing I found on the wiki affa page - the command to install fails
yum install --enablerepo=smecontribs,epel,openfusion smeserver-affa

but this works.
yum install smeserver-affa --enablerepo=smedev,epel,openfusion

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light

:-)

Its ReetP glass in hand.. LOL
