- Subject: sshd - inconsistent app behavior vs console
I am trying to setup remote backups using vshadow.exe to create a drive
snapshot (Volume Shadow Copy Service). When I run vshadow from a console
bash prompt it works fine, but if I ssh to the host and run it remotely
it does not.
It appears that there is something different between the bash
environment I get via sshd and the one I get by opening the bash prompt
via the start menu. I have verified that the bash.exe process that runs
when I ssh is owned by my user account and other than some differences
in environment variables, I can't see any difference between the bash
processes. Everything else I've tried via ssh has worked ok.
I believe that vshadow does interact with other services on the host. I
did come across some prior messages in the list archive that suggested
there was a problem with this via sshd. I was not able to find any clear
I'm running the latest cygwin code on Windows XP sp2. I don't think
there is anything special or unusual about my setup.
Here's what I get when I run vshadow from an ssh session. I get the same
error on two different hosts.
$ ./vshadow.exe c:
