I am running DeltaCopy on a windows XP pro machine. I am running both client and
server. I have tried both rev 2.6.6 and 2.6.9 of rsync.exe in the program directory.
Everything works fine when I copy to an attached usb drive.

But I am having a problem copying to a mapped shared drive on another computer. The
error in the event log when I try to copy to a drive mapped to Z:\ is:

The following information is part of the event: rsyncd: PID 4380: rsync: chdir /cygdrive/z
failed
: No such file or directory (2).

Thanks to anyone who can help.

There is in fact a hack to get it working.

First:
You have to create a cygwin mount to the UNC path of the share you want to use:
- Create a key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CYGNUS SOLUTIONS\CYGWIN\MOUNTS V2 that is called after the name of the mount you want (/backup for example)
- Populate this key with a string value that is named native that contains the UNC path to the share you want deltacopy to use
- Add a DWORD called Flags to that same key with the value 0x0000000a

Second:
Manually edit the deltacd.conf file that is found in the DeltaBakcup program folder and put the mount path that you have just created in the path variable (ex: /backup)

Third:
Enjoy

I was able to do the registry hack/fix to get it to work. THANK YOU. The directions might be a little confusing for non-registry people, so I'll try to clear them up.

-Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CYGNUS SOLUTIONS\CYGWIN\MOUNTS V2

-create a new key called /backup (it can really be any name, like /whatever)

-In the new key/sub folder, right click and create a new string named "native" without the quotes.

-Double click on the new string, and change the Value Data to the share path. (I have it working via IP, so it was \\192.168.1.100\whatever)

-Create a new DWORD called Flags

-Double click on flag, and change the value data to "a" without quotes (hexidecimal), so it looks like 0x0000000a in the registry editor.

Hope this clears things up. You aren't technically using a mapped drive, and I don't know if you can. You are using the fully qualified share name.

Using the instructions below I was able to get this to work perfectly on a Windows 7 computer. The registry key was in HKEY_LOCAL_USER but the same otherwise.

I'm trying to set this up on Windows Server 2008 R2. The registry key location is different. Otherwise, I've configured it the same way and it's not working.

Anything special about this hack on 2008 R2?

Thanks,
Jeff

I got this to work. I installed the application as the user (given local administrator rights) but more importantly, I think, I run the DeltaCopy Service as the same user. I saw I was having a permission problem on rsync.

So this works. Cool.

Thanks,
Jeff

Didn`t work by me. If the network folder has got an username/password, is it neccessary to store in registry, too? How does it work?

Thanks a lot!

I experienced another issue - Windows bypass.

For CLIENT part, if you want to backup "Z:" ressouce - mapped to a network ressource, you can use SUBST in a DOS COMMAND.
SUBST X: Z:\
RSYNC command
SUBST X: /D
Then X: is a local drive, and you trick DeltaCopy client.



For SERVER part, if you want to store files onto network ressource, you must run a DOS COMMAND as the DeltaCopy Service Account (or log as this account)
REM this is to reconnect future connexions
NET USE /PERSISTENT:yes

REM this is to map my drive to Z:
NET USE Z: \\mysserver\my ressource

REM this is the subst...
SUBST X: Z:\

BE CAREFULL: SUBST X: -> Z: will work event if Z: is mapped to another drive............
If your server is a dedicated one, it can be a solution, otherwise -> forget
