SCP automated backup failing.


Hi Guy's,


I am following the guide to create and automatically transfer my UCS file to our remote backup.


It creates the backup but I cannot transfer it via SFTP or SCP.


I get the following when I attempt to SCP to our Windows backup server:


[root@LB-03:Active:Standalone] ucs # scp -p test@10.110.54.X:E:\backup-folder\

test@10.110.54.Xs password:

Connection to 10.110.54.X closed by remote host.

lost connection


I just cant get this to work, I read that I haven't done the SSH key's part because I can use the password but it won't transfer the files.


Would really appreciate the help, I am not sure how I can find or open logs to see what the issue is.


My linux skills are weak.



So by the looks of it you are unable to login with a username and password on your SCP server.

I think icall is a better way to perform backups.


Have a look at this article:
