Hi all,

I'm trying to backup current configuration (6.0u12) before upgrading to 

The auto backup failed with the following error:
cp: omitting directory `/tmp/'

Command failed: cp /tmp/ /backup.log

Probably a permission problem. Please check file access permissions.
Check read/write permission. Check if SGE daemons are running.

I did the backup operation at $SGE_ROOT (/exports/applications/sge/6.0u12) as root:

./inst_sge -bup -auto /exports/applications/sge/6.0u12/util/install_modules/backup_template.conf

The backup dir is /exports/applications/sge/6.0u12/ecdf_backup

Anyone understand this error?
