I'm testing out the new TKLBAM backup system (which is a great idea btw.) I set up a core appliance yesterday and successfully made my first backup that showed up at the  hub.turnkeylinux.org site. After my second backup (26Gb), which completed without errors, there are now no backups listed at all at hub.turnkeylinux.org.  Is there something obvious I should check or that I might be doing wrong? 

Below is the tail of my second back up log together with the output of tklbam-list:

Martin, it looks like you ran into a new kind of bug. We'll have to investigate and get back to you. If possible we'll fix this in a way that doesn't require you to recreate the backup.


FYI - I just ran backup #3 after a few smaller changes and it seems to recognize that the previous large (26Gb) backup was carried out successfully. The delta this time was only ~10Mb. tklbam-list still shows no backups however.  

Don't worry about me having to recreate the backup - I'm just testing at this point anyway. Also, let me know if I can send you any other useful info.

Your data was backed up successfully, the issue was related to the Hub's caching mechanism of the backup size (IntegerField instead of BigIntegerField). After updating the database schema, everything is working as it should.
I triggered the cache update of your Backup Records in the Hub, so they will now appear in the Backups dashboard.
Thanks for reporting the issue, and helping us work out the kinks of the beta release. If you come across any other issues, let us know.

Thanks for the quick fix - Everything is working smoothly now. I'm migrating several machines over and looking forward to the easy backups!

The discussed issue has been fixed. I think this was the issue.
