Re: Omniback II 3.10 & GNU/Linux Slackware 7

I hate to say this, but I don't think that you have an Omniback issue. I'm sure that your error messages are pointing to a DNS issue.

Please verify that DNS is functionally the same on all of your boxes.

Perform the following:

1. named -v (as root) <- Check the version of named on all of th platforms

2. examine the /etc/resolv.conf <- Is it similar to the other Linux Boxes?

3. Check the configuration of /etc/nsswitch.conf <- is it simialr on all platforms?

All of your errors indicate a failure to 'gethostbyname'

I suspect that there is a problem in the /etc/resolv.conf nad the versions of named.

Good Luck.

I had the error message, too (suse7.0 omnibackII3.5)

the problem is away, when you the install
Packet (a) nssv1.rmp (suse7.0)!!!

then run omniback !!

Re: Omniback II 3.10 & GNU/Linux Slackware 7

Hello,

I have heard about problems with some linux name resolvers (provided with glibc) and OmniBack II 3.10.

I'm not sure that a patch is provided for slackware, but as it depends on glibc, you may decide (at your own risk :-) to upgrade or downgrade it.

Good luck.
