Error with Cronjob - Manual Backup works


Hi there,

i get the following error, when my backup starts per cronjob.

On manual start it works
On my other Server it works perfectly.

My /var/spool/cron/crontabs/root

my /etc/rc.local.d/


It is the prune command in the pre-backup script that was out of memory. A process running directly inside the ESXi host can only have a limited amount of memory (less then 1GB) so you will run into this memory problem if you have lots of backups to prune. I would suggest using Duplicacy on another computer to prune the backups which is free for this purpose.


Ah! okay. Thanks. thats interessting.

Last night it works suddenly. I will obeserve this.
