hostname in duplicity filename

Asked by Tushar Desai on 2020-12-29

Duplicity backup files start with the word 'duplicity'. IT would be more helpful to have the hostname replace that string. Is this possible?

Currently that is not possible. It is possible to use one of the "--file-prefix=" options to mark the files by hostname, for example,

$ duplicity full --file-prefix=dione_ ...

would make all files be named "dione_duplicity...".

Hope that helps!
