i am trying to improve my restic skills with a shell script that runs automatically via cron.
At the end of the backup i want to write the files of that snapshot to a log and i am using this command line
restic ls -r $REPO --password-file $PASSWD latest >> $LOG
where $REPO is the name of the repository, $PASSWD the name of the password file and $LOG the path to the logfile. All variables contain the absolute path.
The handover of the password via file works perfectly during backup but once i fire the command above for getting the list, the command failed with that error:
Fatal: All path filters must be absolute, starting with a forward slash '/'
As it is working during backup without that error i don’t know what’s wrong.
Any ideas where my mistake is would be appreciated
EDIT: That is not a problem of the script. If i use it on the CLI and replace the variables with the values it throws the same error.
