'mds_backup' fails with 'Backing-up the Multi-Domain Server failed' error Technical Level
Symptoms
  • '$MDSDIR/scripts/mds_backup' script fails with these errors:

    mds_backup> Deleting temporary Multi-Domain Server backup files
    mds_backup> Backing-up the Multi-Domain Server failed.
    mds_backup> Cannot proceed with backup of the Multi-Domain Server.
Cause

gtar version was changed in R76.

In the new version, instead of returning 0 (success) or 1 (fail) value, gtar now returns 0 (success), 1 (changed), and 2 (fail), where "changed" means that one of the files was changed during time that gtar was running.
