Summary0022731: backuppc user needs shell access
DescriptionThere are various commands in /usr/share/BackupPC/bin which an admin may want to use, but commands like /usr/share/BackupPC/bin/BackupPC_nightly insist that you run them as the backuppc user.

When you try to "su - backuppc" you get the message "This account is currently not available.". This is because the backuppc user is set up with the /sbin/nologin shell (i.e. no access).

If you give the backuppc shell access with:
usermod backuppc -s /bin/bash

Then you can su to backuppc and run the commands.
