Firstly I would like to show my appreciation for everyone who is working so hard on the OH3 release, I understand that is where most of the focus is at the moment.
I also understand that this is why some of the documentation is missing key information and appreciate an update will follow in due course.
That said in the meantime I have a couple of questions surrounding how backup works in openhabian.
Process & understanding so far
I’ve installed the image onto an 8GB SD card and updated
openhabian.confby uncommenting the options under
# external SD card device to backup and mirror the internal SD card to
I inserted a 32GB card into a reader and inserted that into the back of the Pi
I then powered on the Pi and let openhabian do its magic while keeping an eye on the log for errors
As mentioned in the documentation this has set up 1 monthly full backup, 1 sync a week and daily backups of openhab via amanda. The frequency of these backups is found here
I’m asking these questions as I don’t want to randomly push buttons based on my assumptions and mess things up.
I’ve now started to customise my setup meaning the SD card is instantly out of date.
Do I use option 55 Sync SD to bring it back in line, wait for the scheduled backup mentioned above, select 54 Raw copy SD or something else?
Can I 54 Raw copy SD without setting up any mirroring and do periodically?
