AhsayBBF is now superseded by AhsayUBS (Ahsay Universal Backup System) which, in short, is an AhsayBBF that can be installed into hard disk (or VM) directly. It also features an upgrade from FreeBSD 6.0 to FreeBSD 7.2 and contains a wider support of hardware drivers. If you have previously run into problems with AhsayBBF on specific hardware, please try to install AhsayUBS again on the same hardware and see if the problem is still here.

Moving to 8.1

Postby Rockyboa » Mon Aug 23, 2010 9:12 am

It would be nice considering moving to 8.1 since:

1) latest stable release
2) Support Xen DomU so could be paravirtualize in Xen.

Thank you for considering. This would be major for us.

Branding UBS

Postby whittan » Thu Jan 13, 2011 3:02 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have instruction on how to brand the UBS? I note the below

Fully Brandable for Building Branded Backup Appliance
AhsayUBS is fully brandable, thus enabling our partners to build their own branded backup appliances easily. All the interface wordings are customizable. If you do not have the expertise in designing your own product images, we also have professional design and branding services to help you design all the required product images and customize the product based on your requirement.

I can SSH into the UBS, share the OBSR, but can't see where to put the modified files.

Many thanks,

Andrew.

You can access the installation files at the following location: /ubs/mnt/esfmfw/obsr/system/obsr

You need to grant write permission before making any modification:

Example:
>mount -uw /ubs/mnt/esfmfw

Thanks.

What is the preferred way to upgrade UBS with the latest 5.5.8.0.

Do we follow the unix upgrade procedure?

Anyone else notice the transfer rates to UBS is horrible?

This is on an HP d5 server.

Server issues

Postby samHanks2 » Tue Jan 17, 2012 5:00 am

Perhaps this is a database thing? I've been experimenting with some off-site servers, and transfer rates are way too slow. I've heard there are some ediscovery third-party software companies that are working on a fix? Or maybe it's an IP thing?

Is this still the case for expending volume on AhsayUBS?
file system expansion?

Do we still need to backup and rebuild the volume?

ESXi server allow VM administrator to resize the VM disk size (e.g. 80GB -> 500GB). The created UFS file system will still have 80GB in size (file system expansion is not available for BBF), even though the freespace available is now 500GB.

Hello,

Although you have expanded the disk or volume on a VMware level, the disk space on AhsayUBS guest will not automatically expand.

Now that you have an extra 420GB of free space we suggest you create a new volume on AhsayUBS and locate your new backup user accounts to the new volume.

Please refer to Chapter 8.4.2.1.2 Additional Storage of our AhsayUBS Administrator's Guide for details https://forum.ahsay.com/viewtopic.php?f=94&t=9791
