Cannot create internal backup job

Firmware 2.11.142.

Backups -> Internal Backups -> Create Job -> Enter Job Name -> Use Browse buttons to select both a Source and Destination -> Click Ok. No job gets created. No errors. How can I troubleshoot this?

The REST call could be failing to complete for some reason

  • High CPU and or Memory Usage
  • Crawler keeping the database busy?
  • DNLA indexing?
  • High System Load
  • Corrupted xml file or xml file cannot be created for some reason

If you’re comfortable with SSH, run top and check CPU, Mem and Average Load.

EXAMPLE

_cat /usr/local/tmp_wdnas_config/config/internal_backup.xml
