I am having a problem with the Yast backup. I see that others have had the same problem but no fixes or solutions were posted.

Archive creation failed
Autoinstallation profile was not saved.

also here is info from mount and profile commands:

some additional info :
this is a new opensuse 11.1 box that is backing up to a nfs share on a windows server …maybe a permissions problem ???
I did try to run it as a cron job last night and received an e-mail saying that : missing parameter: --user
any help would be greatly appreciated
