Hi,

To use a CIFS share edit your /etc/rear/local.conf and add
the
following:
BACKUP_URL=
and BACKUP_OPTIONS=
OUTPUT=ISO
See below of what it
should look like (see configuration-examples.txt)

 		To backup to a Samba
share (CIFS), use

 		BACKUP_URL=cifs://cifs-server-name/share/path. To
provide credentials for

 		CIFS mounting use a /etc/rear/.cifs credentials
file and define

 		BACKUP_OPTIONS="cred=/etc/rear/.cifs" and pass along:


		username=_username_

 		password=_secret password_


		domain=_domain_

Try first 'rear -v mkrescue' as this will copy your ISO
image to
the CIFS share. If it fails it will tell you why (or at least in
the
rear.log file).
Most likely you need the smb-utils or alike to be
installed.

If that works then run 'rear -v mkbackup'
To recover boot from
the ISO image and just type:
# rear -v recover
This should automatically
mount the CIFS share.
