try adding the following to your ReaR config (assuming you have Bash 4)

With the --one-filesystem option you will have to give tar a list of
mountpoints to store. If you know the mountpoints then you can use the

BACKUP_PROG_INCLUDE=( / /var /mount /points )

See /usr/share/rear/conf/default.conf for a descriptions of these and other
variables. You will probably also find there inspiration for other

Kind Regards,
