Hetzner Storage Box Support - SSH

Dennis Nind shared this idea 4 months ago
Under Consideration

We would like to use Hetzner SSH Storage Boxes for our backup solution...


We have already configured an SSH key, so we are able to rsync without a password prompt using /root/.ssh/id_rsa

However, when we try and add this as a backup destination, we get the following error in JetBackup...

Error: Failed to validate destination write ability

I can confirm the rsync however is working fine from the shell directly. I believe the reason for this is that the storage box doesn't permit Interactive SSH access, so its only available for SFTP, rsync and SFTP. Basically, its not available to ssh into directly.

It would be great if you could add this support, as storage boxes are incredibly affordable, fast and reliable from our tests so far.

The cost is also comparable / cheaper than backblaze for larger storage volumes!

The important reason for this is that Backblaze is based in the USA, with only 1 DC - we are UK based, and Hetzner is located far closer.
