Hi Victor,

if you send me an email (please refer to this thread), I can send you a version which seems to work for me.

Regards, Heinz-Josef

Hi Victor,

you're right, the symlink is not created in the replication.

I just checked: The name of the symlink is written in the file, which storeBackupUpdateBackup reads for other reasons. So the information is available to it.

I'll add this to the list of things to do.

Can storeBackup create a link to the most recent backup for a backup copy that has been replicated? I am able to configure storeBackup to create the link for the master backup series (using option linkToRecent in but unable to create a similar link in the backup copy.

Is there an option for (or in storeBackupBaseTree.conf) that I am missing?

I am using storeBackup version 3.5 and have looked at bug #42325 – I created the symlink manually in master backup and backup copy; but only the one in  master backup updates automatically.
