How reproducible:
Always with NFS Backup

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute NFS Backup
2. Successfully create the Backup at the depot
3. Flashes ERROR in evm.log `[NoMethodError]: undefined method `path' for nil:NilClass`

Actual results:
Flashes ERROR in evm.log `[NoMethodError]: undefined method `path' for nil:NilClass`

Expected results:

Why is that error if backup is successfull?

I was trying to reproduce this on 5.10.5.1 to add a check to our cfme/tests/configure/test_db_backup_schedule.py::test_db_backup_schedule to ensure this doesn't appear again and failed to reproduce

Comment 5 Jaroslav Henner 2019-10-21 17:35:02 UTC
It reproduced when the uri was incorrect
