[Box Backup] Win32 client and snapshot mode?
Fri, 17 Dec 2004 10:08:50 -0000
Because unix sockets are not available on win32 - the short term fix was
to communicate over a normal socket, so the line for unix socket is
commented out in the config, the goal is to use a named pipe eventually.
The message you have received is because an exception has been thrown,
then the message is printed out, can you have a look through your event
log (Application log) to see if there is a more meaningful error

Subject: [Box Backup] Win32 client and snapshot mode?
I have been trying to get the snapshot mode to work on the win32 client=20
to no avail. It seems that bbackupctl somehow is unable to connect to
the command socket of bbackupd. Here's the error message I get when I
run 'bbackupctl.exe sync':
Failed to connect to daemon control socket.
* daemon not running
* daemon busy syncing with store server
* another bbackupctl process is communicating with the server
* daemon is waiting to recover from an error
Failed to connect to command socket
I don't know anything about sockets on windows, but I ran 'netstat -ba'
and it appears that bbackupd.exe is listening on TCP port 9035.
So I telnetted to port 9035 on 127.0.0.1, and I was able to start a sync
(by typing 'sync'). But I can't get bbackupctl.exe to do it. Has anyone
been able to get bbackupctl to work?
I changed the following parameters in my config file:
AutomaticBackup =3D no
UpdateStoreInterval =3D 0
MinumumFileAge =3D 0
MaxUploadWait =3D 0
The 'CommandSocket' parameter is commented out in the file that is
installed, but I don't know what to change it to, to make bbackupctl
Thanks in advance,
