[MINDI] Difficulties creating a Linux Boot CD

Hello,

 

I am new to installing tools on a Linux Server.

 

We have an HP Proliant ML310 Linux Server.

 

It is running :

[root <at> localhost mindi]# uname -a

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.18-402.el5 #1 SMP Tue Feb 10 17:49:04 EST 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

[root <at> localhost mindi]# cat /etc/redhat-release

CentOS release 5.11 (Final)

[root <at> localhost mindi]# 

[root <at> localhost ~]# mindi --findkernel

Disk /dev/dm-0 doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/dm-1 doesn't contain a valid partition table

TryToFindKernelPath found /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-402.el5

/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.18-402.el5

 

I believe I installed the latest 64-bit versions of mindi, mondo, and mindi-busybox.

[root <at> localhost Downloads]# rpm -ivh mindi-3.0.0-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]

        package mindi-3.0.0-1.rhel5.x86_64 is already installed

[root <at> localhost Downloads]# rpm -ivh mindi-busybox-1.21.1-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]

        package mindi-busybox-1.21.1-1.rhel5.x86_64 is already installed

[root <at> localhost Downloads]# rpm -ivh mondo-3.2.0-1.rhel5.x86_64.rpm

Preparing...                ########################################### [100%]

        package mondo-3.2.0-1.rhel5.x86_64 is already installed

 

However when I tried to create the boot CD I got a ton of errors. I attached the mindi log file and a file with the results Konsole window, mindi.konsole.txt:

1.       The first things that didn’t seem right are:

Disk /dev/dm-0 doesn't contain a valid partition table

Disk /dev/dm-1 doesn't contain a valid partition table

2.       Then there is the Error:

ERROR: Problem in udev.lis analysis

3.       Followed by a message advocating installing latest HP SDR files. (I would if I wasn’t scared to death I’ll trash the server).

4.       Then there is a mount point error:

ERROR: Unable to copy modules to /tmp/mindi.EHrfX27852/mountpoint.27849

5.       Followed by a ton of No such file or directory errors. Here is one for example:

/usr/sbin/mindi: line 2688: cd: /tmp/mindi.EHrfX27852/mountpoint.27849/bin: No such file or directory

6.       When queried to make a bootable CD image, I replied ‘y’, though this probably is useless, with all the above errors.

7.       Then I was prompted to

                Shall I make a bootable USB device ? (y/[n])

Which I am totally clueless as how to answer this, so I choose ‘n’

 

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Even if you could just point me where to go from here.

 

I really wanted to create a backup image of the Server before I installed a bunch of software, and/or upgraded existing software, esp. since I am new to this.

 

I hope I provided you with enough information, and I truly hope you can help.

 

Thank you so very much,

 

Elicia

is mondo or mindi reasonable merely to make a bootable clone on a new hd?

i looked at the docs, and couldn't find a place where it was
mentioned.  i mostly got the impression that data are serialized in
some way?  i could be wrong.

does it make sense at all to use these tools if your goal is merely to
take your debian installation, and a brand new hard drive, and make
the first 2 partitions of your hard drive be boot and root,
respectively, such that it boots exactly like the existing hard drive?

i.e. do these tools provide an advantage over rsync + chroot + initrd
+ (either grub-update + grub-install or dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc)?  i
have had trouble trying to get that to work.(1)

there are a couple of other partitions on the new hd that need to be
unchanged, and nothing on the old should be changed.  /boot is ext2.
/root is luks ext4.

i hope i've hewed to etiquette.  i did try.  i am not subscribed.

thanks.

(1) in case anybody is interested,  grub comes up, but it boots very
strangely and says something very close to

  Check cryptopts=source= bootarg:cat/proc/command line or  missing
modules, device:cat /proc/modules ls/dev
  -r ALERT!  /dev/disk/by-uuid/[the partition's uuid] does not exist
dropping to a shell!

which i do not understand.  the fs definitely does exist and opens in
cryptsetup luksopen, but cannot mount.  mount says it doesn't exist
even though it does.  it mounts when i boot to the working drive and
mount it from there.

Errors occurred during the disk partitioning_RHL5

Hello, I have a project to clone our systems RH5 installed in the blade Classe C HP , and I found this utility useful and benefic , but I meet some errors when I try to restore the OS , I tried to solve it within the similar existing problems but I don't find the same case like mine. I could do the archive no problem, but when I try to restore, the LVM creation partitons don't work correctly and generate the partioning error and after that, it asks me many time if I would re-edit the mountlist, if I chose yes and I change it from graphical display and from file /tmp/I-want-my-lvm, the problem persist and display again the menu who asked me another time if I would change the mountlist. Please if you have any idea about this error or bug, please give me the solution. Many Thanks. By the way I upload the mondorestore log files if we need more detail about the error? and also the print-screen of the re-edit menue. I use the latest mondo package from ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/5/x86_64/ re-edit_mountlist.png mondorestore.logmondofdisk.log

Re: Mondo Rescue failed to restore RPM database.

Hi Bruno,

Thanks!

Actually, I downloaded mondorescue  3.0.4 version from the link below. I took a new backup, then when I tried
to do a mondo restore, there are errors:

ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/rhel/6/x86_64/

---------FATAL ERROR-------
Backup-media-type not specified!

So I checked the /tmp/mondorestore.cfg and it has "backup-media-type cdr". It should be "iso".  Is this a
bug at this version?

Thanks!
Hien

SO I guess you're using 3.2.0. It's a know bug where large files are NOT restored correctly. 

> Have you encountered this issue before? 

Yes. Reported here: http://trac.mondorescue.org/ticket/768

> And is there a way we can fix this? I've attached the logs.

Use either 3.2.1 beta at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test (if your distro is not there, please et me know.
If you use RHEL6 x86_64, that's where I'm making my UEFI support test and the curret versions are also
broken but for other reasons.) or use 3.0.4 which works really fine for RHEL6

Bruno.

Mondo Rescue failed to restore RPM database.

Hello,

 

We’ve used Mondorescue to backup and restore our servers which is using vmware.  The system is running RHEL 6.4.

The backup and restore logs look ok. It says that it backup and restored /var/lib/rpm ok. After rebooting the server after mondorestore, and the application starts up OK. However when we try to query the RPM database, we get an error.

 

[root <at> xxx etc]# rpm -qa

error: db3 error(-30986) from dbcursor->c_get: DB_PAGE_NOTFOUND: Requested page not found

 

mondoarchive.log:

DBG2: [Main] mondorestore.c->restore_all_biggiefiles_from_CD#1950: Thinking about restoring bigfile 11

 

If we do rpm –rebuild then we will lose all the packages that were originally installed in the RPM database.

 

Have you encountered this issue before? And is there a way we can fix this? I’ve attached the logs.

 

Any advice would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks,

Hien

Core dump on Fedora 21, x86_64

Gang,

When trying to run mondoarchive on a Fedora 21, 64-bit system via a
command line, the system starts up OK, then coredumps. Here's the
full command:
---------------------- CUT HERE ---------------------------------------
[root <at> prophead ~]# mondoarchive -O -i -p prophead-05-08-2015 -I "/" -E 
"/media" -d /media/1TB-Drive/Backups/MondoImages -s 4480m -z -K 99
See /var/log/mondoarchive.log for details of backup run.
Checking sanity of your Linux distribution
Done.
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
---------------------- CUT HERE ---------------------------------------

These are the packages I have installed:

	afio.x86_64                            2.5-1.fc21
	mindi.x86_64                           3.0.0-1.fc21
	mindi-busybox.x86_64                   1.21.1-1.fc21
	mondo.x86_64                           3.2.0-1.fc21
	perl-MondoRescue.noarch                3.2.0-1.fc21

All are from the Mondo repository installed via yum. I'm also attaching
the logs to this message.

It's odd in that if I run it via the GUI using essentially the same
options (or as near as I've sorted out), it runs fine. It just goes
belly up when I try the command line above.

Any ideas?
