Error during scheduled backups

    I am using Plesk 8.2 with Ubuntu 6.06 and keep receiving this email from the server when a scheduled backup runs, this is setup using Plesk Control Panel and not command line/crontab.

    Message reads:

    Following error is occured during scheduled backup process:

    Error in BackupState.doActivityRunner()
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/opt/psa/admin/share/agent_runner/agent_runner.py", line 98, in doActivityRunner
    newState = self.doActivity()
    File "/opt/psa/admin/share/agent_runner/agent_runner.py", line 391, in doActivity
    errtxt = runAgent(self, self.session)
    File "/opt/psa/admin/share/agent_runner/agent_runner.py", line 258, in runAgent

    raise NonzeroExitException(self, os.WEXITSTATUS(status))
    NonzeroExitException: was finished with exit code 127

    Any clues as to what I need to do would be greatly appreciated?

    All ready applied...

    Seem to be following you around, all ready checked these permissions and python is enabled for the respective clients.

    Still looking for a solution...

    Just received this instead of the usual at the top of this thread, a whole different set of errors...

    Possible answer to the problem

    I noticed a lot of the time resources were hitting hard limits, specifically privvmpages and numfiles in the Virtuozzo resources list, they are under auxillary if remember rightly.

    After speaking to my service provider they increased privvmpages by 50%, and no more problems, all server functions are as they should be.

    As for numfiles it is high but not stopping any functions.

    FYI I removed all non-necessary modules, which dropped the figures, but removing spamassassin dropped the number by 20%, so now looking at greylisting on my Plesk 8.2, Ubuntu 6.06 server, as it was most excellent on my old Plesk 7.5.4 server.

    Cheers for reading,
