Post by noel narcisse Hello !!! Backup failed on hostname (Tar exited with error 65280 ( ) status ) I can't find this error on tar docs !!!!
The real exit status is (65280 >> 8) == 255. This likely means ssh isn't setup correctly. Look in the XferLOG.bad file and run the tar command there manually as the BackupPC user. Does ssh ask for a password or exit with some error? If so, that's your problem. Craig
