Hmm I woke up to find some homework to do. Thanks!
I wonder why these posts were deleted… again without any notification. Since the content had no modification on the vera itself whatsoever, this is starting get out of hand.
Attached is the script to be put on a linux machine on your network. I have mine on my openLuup machine which is a VM but could be a rPi or anything else running linux.
Open the zipped file and put it somewhere you know and edit the destination folder of your backups. I would recommend to create a new folder somewhere and put the path in it. Also edit the IP of the vera.
Now remember where you put your script and copy the path into a crontab task. I run mine once a day. It is really equivalent to what the vera servers do through a constantly open tunnel and the process is the same as what happens when you hit the “backup zwave network” button followed by “create a backup” button but just from a different machine. This script also rotates the number of backups to be kept on your server and you can determine how many should be kept. The default is 30.
