    I went to enter this command
    HTML:
    nmblookup server1
    I got the result of
    HTML:
    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?

    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.

    Does
    Code:
    nmblookup server2
    work?

    results on server2

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

    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...

    I had this problem. I solved it by installing smbclient.

    On Ubuntu it's

    Code:
    sudo aptitude install smbclient
