I've just upgraded to 3.0.2 from 2.2.8 and was hoping to use the Backup
Operators group in Windows XP for backup of windows data directories. I
set up a Linux 'backup' group and a 'backup' user who is a member of it
and then mapped the backup group to 'Backup Operators' with type=d.
The data directory on the wiindows machine (C:\Documents and Settings)
is shared with either Backup Operators or the backup user having
permissions on the share.
I can mount the share, but not access the subdirectories.
Any thoughts?
