Multi-Site Backup fails for one Siteworx Account - help

( I have changed private info to xxxx and yyyy )
I am doing a nightly backup of all of my siteworx accounts. I recently added a new account and now the backups are failing.

I receive an email with the following error message:

[INDENT]This in an automatic informational message to notify you that the full
backup of domain was unsuccessfully completed. *The
backup file can be found here:


Your NodeWorx Server Manager
–exclude=xxxx/var/yyyy/…backup.transfer.ini* **
–ignore-failed-read *–append *–file */tmp/swbkB0JF6C *xxx [/INDENT]

If I manually schedule the job and watch the user’s backup directory while it is running I get the following entries:

-rw-r–r-- 1 root root 0 May 16 13:29
-rw-rw---- 1 iworx leesasso 0 May 16 13:29

These never have any contents.

At the end of the backup I am left only with a zero length file:

-rw-rw---- 1 iworx leesasso 0 May 16 13:29

Since I am currently unable to take a backup of this user I would really appreciate some help on this as quickly as possible.

Not to worry, I found the answer. My /tmp partition was too small to allow the tar to complete. Further information for anybody else with this problem can be found here:
