Remove the unwanted spaces from the /etc/exports file and restart the PhoenixBackupStore service.

Steps to remove the spaces from

/etc/exports file.
  • Make a copy of the file.

cp /etc/exports /etc/exports_orig

check if a new backup file is created /etc/exports_orig

If not, then create it first.

  • Run the below commands to find and replace the spaces.

# sed "/^\//s/ [ ]*/ /g" /etc/exports

If the above commands run fine, only then run below command.

# sed -i "/^\//s/ [ ]*/ /g" /etc/exports
  • Restart the PBS store Service.

# service PhoenixBackupStore restart   

Once the above steps are done, you will see the PhoenixBackupStore service running and the client will show connected on the Phoenix console.
