Some questions and missing documentation

Hi All,

last week i decided to move to Zenoss 5 and installed the latest version 5.1.1. Unfortunately i'm missing some features in the current documentation respectively it looks like the syntax has changed but the documentation was not updatet. Maybe someone can help me out on this please.

1. zenossdbpack

Documenation says 'serviced service run zope zenossdbpack" but the command is not found:

serviced service run zope zenossdbpack

[root@xxx temp]# serviced service run zope zenossdbpack
command not found for service

2. Monitoring templates and command data sources

In the meantime i learned that i have to add my custom command scripts to a zenpack to get it migrated to Zenoss 5. I'm missing two details. What is the correct command path when settings the command data source Another problem is that i have for example a script which checks a Freeradius Server by using the radclient binary. So i'm wondering how i can access it via my command script.

3. First backup was started via Control Center and finished successfully. When i try to backup again i get the error message "Error 500 archive/tar: missed writing 16104 bytes" and the backup process will stop after approx. 1-2 minutes. Backup volume is a NFS remote. No files are found except the first successfull backup task.

Beside of that i'm quite happy with the latest version. Looks like it is running stable :D

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you and greetings from Berlin.
