SCP automated backup failing.

Hi Guy's,

 

I am following the guide https://support.f5.com/csp/article/K13418 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 fb-adcmgmt-03.net.aeltc.com.ucs test@10.110.54.X:E:\backup-folder\fb-adcmgmt-03.net.aeltc.com.ucs

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: https://devcentral.f5.com/s/articles/f5-backup-procedure-over-scp-using-icall-1200

 

Cheers,
