    Is there a way to reset RSync service.

  • to answer your question, you have to manually modify /etc/openmediavault/config.xml. Search for rsync and delete everything between <jobs> and </jobs>.

    After successfully using Rsync once, and then deleting the shares I had used, I have the same problem.

    Is there a way to do this from the command line? Step by step? Or another way to edit and save the config.xml file other than shellinabox? I have installed shellinabox, but whenever I try to run the web client is won't get past the login password, so I can't use it.

    Updated 3 hours later-
    Woo Hoo! I ran nano /etc/openmediavault/config.xml and followed exactly what you said, votdev. Did the trick! Rsync now runs without the Xpath error.

    Thanks a bunch!

  • I had the same problem, after messing around some directories manually rsnyc threw up some error messages. Editing the xml fixed it!

    I don't know how else to say this but I could kiss you right now. I just ran into this issue and for once I found a very simple (to me) and easy fix that got me RIGHT through to what I needed to do. Very awesome sir.

  • Hello,

    I have this problem when visiting the Rsnapshot page to add a job.

    Fout #0:
    OMV\Config\DatabaseException: Failed to execute XPath query '//system/shares/sharedfolder[uuid='5ae0e2f5-8189-4682-828d-37a60d8a3ee2']'. in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/config/
    Stack trace:
    #0 /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/rpc/ OMV\Config\Database->get('conf.system.sha...', '5ae0e2f5-8189-4...')
    #1 [internal function]: OMVRpcServiceRsnapshot->getList(Array, Array)
    #2 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ call_user_func_array(Array, Array)
    #3 /usr/share/php/openmediavault/rpc/ OMV\Rpc\ServiceAbstract->callMethod('getList', Array, Array)
    #4 /usr/sbin/omv-engined(536): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('RSnapshot', 'getList', Array, Array, 1)
    #5 {main}

    Applying your fix doesnt work for me. Any idea?


    Edit: Fixed by doing the same in the Rsnapshot section: remove jobs. Thank you.

  • I still don't have a clue how to fix it...

    I've installed the newest version of OMV on muy Pi 3... I don't know how to remove that annoying error. I don't even know where I could find the cli/cmd. I ran the command "nano /etc/openmediavault/config.xml" over tasks then set it as a daily task and manually run it immediatly. Didnt have any sense because it gave me another error.

    Who can help me with this problem because I can't solve it myself neither Google helped me...
