    In my case both devices are on the same network so I did not have that trouble.


    Both the solutions you are proposing would obvioulsy work. ssh would be the simplest to setup with a little port forwarding and care. If you are using certificates (which you would need to) and turn off password authentication then IMHO you should be safe enough for your use case. VPN would be more flexible if you want to run other services at the expense of the extra up front effort. However, now you have a process that is not directly started by Borg that needs to be reliable and needs investigating separately if you have any issue. That is the kind of complexity I try to avoid.


    Hope that helps

    Hi. Yes this is already done. In fact I went as far as checking that the commands run without anything interactive, for example


    scott@nas:~$ BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg check --repository-only --info 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'

    Remote: Starting repository check

    Remote: Starting repository index check

    Remote: Index object count match.

    Remote: Completed repository check, no problems found.


    I see you are doing it with root. I wonder if it only works if you connect as root. I will go check

    I have two OMV (NAS and BackupNas) both running 5.5.11-1 with BorgBackup 5.1.5. On either I can create a shared folder and then create a local Repo.


    What I would like to do is create a Repo on BackupNAS to backup NAS to (remote).


    1) If I create the Repo on BackupNAS and then on NAS create a repo pointing to the one on BackupNAS with "Skip init" selected I get an Error on NAS


    OMV\ExecException: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg check --repository-only --info 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'' with exit code '2': in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/process.inc:182


    If I run the command myself it initially failes becuase BorgBackup has created the Repo all owned by root


    PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/config'


    If I chown recuresively the directory then the command will complete if run by hand

    scott@nas:~$ BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg check --repository-only --info 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'

    Remote: Starting repository check

    Remote: Starting repository index check

    Remote: Index object count match.

    Remote: Completed repository check, no problems found.


    However the wizzard in the plugin will still fail as above



    2) If I create a Shared Folder on BackupNAS and then create a repo from NAS remotely it fails


    Error #0:
    OMV\ExecException: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg init --encryption=none 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'' with exit code '2': in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/process.inc:182
    Stack trace:

    #4 /usr/sbin/omv-engined(537): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('BorgBackup', 'setRepo', Array, Array, 1)
    #5 {main}

    Running the command by hand works (the directory is writable by scott)


    scott@nas:~$ BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg init --encryption=none 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'


    and creates the repo


    scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg$ ls -al

    total 72

    drwxrwsr-x 3 root users 4096 Sep 23 09:46 .

    drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4096 Sep 23 09:41 ..

    -rw------- 1 scott users 209 Sep 23 09:46 config

    drwx--S--- 3 scott users 4096 Sep 23 09:46 data

    -rw------- 1 scott users 52 Sep 23 09:46 hints.1

    -rw------- 1 scott users 190 Sep 23 09:46 integrity.1

    -rw------- 1 scott users 73 Sep 23 09:46 README


    and the check works


    scott@nas:~$ BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg check --repository-only --info 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'

    Remote: Starting repository check

    Remote: Starting repository index check


    however trying to tell BorgBackup to use that remote repo still fails with the same error


    Error #0:
    OMV\ExecException: Failed to execute command 'export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin; export LANG=C.UTF-8; BORG_PASSPHRASE='password' /usr/bin/borg check --repository-only --info 'scott@backupnas:/srv/dev-disk-by-label-Backup/Borg/'' with exit code '2': in /usr/share/php/openmediavault/system/process.inc:182
    Stack trace:
    #0 /usr/share/openmediavault/engined/rpc/borgbackup.inc(158): OMV\System\Process->execute(Array)

    #4 /usr/sbin/omv-engined(537): OMV\Rpc\Rpc::call('BorgBackup', 'setRepo', Array, Array, 1)
    #5 {main}

    So I can not move on to create an archive.


    Any suggestions for debugging greatly recieved






    Worked great.


    When I installed openmediavault_5.5.11-amd64.iso from scratch the same thing happened again. This time to fix I needed to do


    sudo salt-call --local state.orchestrate omv.setup.fixmode


    I assume the "stage" in the previous one was because it was something you were working on that has now been promoted


    Thank you
