Default problems setting up Back Up Linux And Windows Systems With BackupPC

I went to enter this command
HTML Code:
nmblookup server1
I got the result of
HTML Code:
querying server1 on 192.168.1.255
name_query failed to find name server1
How do I get this to show what the tutorial is showing so I can finish configuring this application for backing up my server?

Did you set up the hostname correctly? What's the output of
Code:
hostname
and
Code:
hostname -f
? What's in /etc/hosts? Which distribution do you use?

Default backup setup

I setup the same setup as is on the mail server. I used Debian perfect setup. But I used server2.backup.com. I get server2.backup.com when I enter those commands you gave me. The main server is server1.mysite4webhosting.com. I get that if I enter the commands you asked to enter.

work?

Default results on server2

Here is the result from the command you asked about.
HTML Code:
server2:~# nmblookup server2
querying server2 on 192.168.1.255
name_query failed to find name server2

Default backup setup

Can you recommend a backup that is easy to setup that I can install? I wish there was one that did the database and the files all in one program and was easy to restore if I ever need to. I have Debian perfect setup on both servers. The full install. Thanks for your input.

Ghost4Linux and SystemImager are easy to use. And they do bitwise backups, so if you lose data, you can simply restore the image.

hello,
I have same problem , I was trying to set up backuppc whit howto here on howtoforge but
nmblookup command cannot find my linux pc's only the windows pc.

I have a small server with debian ectch on which I installed backuppc and want to store the backups, I have 2 linux pc's with sidux(debian sid) and one pc with winXP in my lan, which all needed to be backedup with backuppc.

jacksbox3:~# nmblookup jacksbox1
querying jacksbox1 on 192.168.1.255
name_query failed to find name jacksbox1

ps on my server also runs samba-server
and I add the IP s and hostnames of the different pc's in the /etc/hosts files.

what can be the problem?

Might be a firewall problem...
