I used linkToDirs.pl with --targetDir pointing to a non-existing folder. Therefore I get an error message as follows:

VERSION   2018.02.22 09:38:22 32329 linkToDirs.pl, 3.5
Use of uninitialized value $devT in string ne at /usr/lib/storeBackup/bin/linkToDirs.pl line 394.
ERROR     2018.02.22 09:38:22 32329 directory </backup/storeBackup/testseries/2017.11.18_14.35.01> is not on the same device as </backup/replica/testseries> - setting hard links is not possible

The error complains about "not the same device" while the real error is the non-existing target dir.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
