Lchown ?

Recommended Posts


I have a daily script doing a backup of various "sensible" Unraid folders using rsnapshot (from nerdtools).

Everything has always working fine until i noticed, in the last times (i guess from 6.12) that the script isn't able to do its job anymore, sending a lot of warnings:

Warning: Could not lchown() symlink (path to the file).

i see online that the fix is usually to install Lchown wich isn't avaiable in default Unraid and either nerdtools.

Any idea?

Hi there,
After some months i'm "upping" this thread.
Yesterday i went through a major "crysis" with my Unraid installation and having a progressive backup with my rsnapshot script would have been a life saver.
But still, it requires lchown and i still didin't find a way to have the command running in my Unraid (in previous version was there).

Any possibile solution?
