SME Server USB Disk Stick mount Problem at SME Server Backup Console

Problem:
On SME Server the HAL Daemon often not recognize a USB Stick or Disk
which you can use for „Console“ Backup Program.

Solution:
– Create a Script with #nano /root/backup.sh
– insert:

  • service haldaemon restart
  • service messagebus restart
  • console
  • exit

This restart the HAL Environment before Console (SSH-Admin-Tool)is opened.

To prevent Users to write on the Shares if you run the Backup you can add:

  • service haldaemon restart
  • service messagebus restart
  • service smb stop
  • console
  • service smb start
  • exit

This will stop Samba-Windows Shares! and prevent File-Access-Lockwaits!
