The Linux Backup Agent installer automatically sets the default parameters for the configuration file located in /usr/sbin/r1soft/conf/agent_config. If you make any changes to this file, you must then restart the Backup Agent daemon using /etc/init.d/cdp-agent restart. For more information about the serverbackup-setup command, see About the cdp-agent and serverbackup-setup tools. For more information about restarting your Backup Agent, see Start, stop, or restart the Linux Backup Agent.

You can get a list of all the available configuration options by using the following command:

cat /usr/sbin/r1soft/conf/agent_config


less /usr/sbin/r1soft/conf/agent_config
