    I have 3 of 8 Cpanel servers giving me errors on the nightly backups. Recently, two changes have been made.

    I moved my backups to a new NFS server running on CentOS 4 which fixed a lot fo backup problems.

    Also, the latest Cpanel Stable was installed on these servers.

    The errors are in the cpbackup E-mail I get with the following.

    mkstemp rina_osc/.banners_history.MYD.xEK9Pu failed: No such file or directory
    mkstemp rina_osc/.banners_history.MYI.M7rUhD failed: No such file or directory
    mkstemp rina_osc/.counter.MYD.5TYDKL failed: No such file or directory
    mkstemp rina_osc/.counter.MYI.EzroeU failed: No such file or directory
    ...
    stat rina_osc : No such file or directory
    ...
    rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(620)

    Then the rest of the backup completes.

    This server is Fedora Core 2 running WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-S83
    Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    The next server same errors, it's WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-S83
    RedHat 9 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    And the third one is WHM 10.1.0 cPanel 10.2.0-S83
    Fedora i686 - WHM X v3.1.0 also fedora core2

    Any ideas? I have several other servers running CentOS 3.4 with no problems, and another one fine running Fedora Core 2

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Go on, have a guess
    From the filenames I would hazard a guess that they're temporary files that were there on the initial rsync pass and deleted by the time rsync actually got to them. If that's the case, it's nothing to worry about and not uncommon, especially when rsyncing large numbers of files.

    OK, if you thinks it's nothing to worry much about. Must be something new with the latest stable then. I haven't had a problem before, and the servers with errors haven't gained any new accounts or change much.

    Each one has about 100 accounts on them. I use Cacti to monitor disk space, and I was originally thinking it was running out with making all those temp files, but the graphs show no event like that.

    Today, only one of those servers shows the error I posted. The others I posted with errors from the night before didn't error out last night.

    wierd

    Thanks,
    Chuck
