remote backup fails with /usr/lib/tar/rmt: No such file or directory

ubuntu 14; webmin 1.74 - same setup on 6 cloud servers ( Exact same scripts work fine from old Debian 6 servers. Cannot find any way to set the path to rmt

have tried symlink from /usr/lib/tar/rmt to /usr/sbin/rmt-tar but no change.

All suggestions gratefully received!

Performing backup of /var/backups/adminbak to .. tar: Removing leading `/' from member names's password: bash: /usr/lib/tar/rmt: No such file or directory tar (child):\:/var/backups/adminall.targz: Cannot open: Input/output error tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now .. backup failed!


What process are you using for your backup – is that being done from within Webmin using System -> Filesystem backup?


Correct - as per…

Anyone got any ideas please?
