I am running Kopia in a container on TrueNAS. I plan to backup to a USB SSD and then “sync-to” the repo from the SSD to Backblaze. I will also probably sync it to an HDD at some point.
The container is running fine. But I couldn’t get mounting the SSD into the container to work. There is an option to mount devices into the container but it doesn’t work, I don’t see any errors or logs regarding this, and I can’t really get support from TrueCharts (who are providing the integration/helm chart) because it is in alpha (or incubator in their terms).
Today I realized I could connect the SSD to my router (FritzBox) which has a NAS feature. It makes the connected storage device available via SMB and FTP. I can access it via SMB and FTP on Windows and Linux. But Kopia doesn’t seem to support FTP, only SFTP. And Kopia also doesn’t seem to support non-anonymous SMB connections. At least it just says it can’t find the SMB path.
For SMB I tried using
\\192.168.2.1\fritz.nas\MAIN_BACKUP\kopia\test1. This is copied from Windows explorer. Is any other format needed? Or is authenticated SMB just not supported by Kopia.
Sadly I can’t make my router provide it as SFTP or turn off authentication for SMB.
