Centos 7 / RHEL 7 ready

Hi everyone

 

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I can’t find any solid info on the state of rhel 7 support for mondo? Does 3.2 support rhel 7 yet?

 

Great work BTW – Mondo makes DR a breeze for the rhel 6 machines I look after. J

 

Kind regards and stay Safe,

Mathew Devene

Software RAID 1 Restoration - No Grub

Greetings-

I am able to make a successful backup of a CentOS 6.x x64 system. And, restoration is also successful, and does not throw any errors during the process.

However, after rebooting after restoration, the system appears to have blank MBRs, and will not boot. Booting a live CD (sysrescuecd for example), bind mounting /proc, /sys/, and /dev, then chroot'ing into the system array, I can then reinstall GRUB manually, then reboot from the HDDs successfully.

Is this a common issue? I've found this issue to only be present on systems with mdadm Linux soft-RAID.

Please let me know if further details are required, and I'll be happy to provide them.

Thanks!

ERROR!

Hi All,

 

I’m attempting to back up an Ubuntu 10.04 server running our phone system using Mondo Rescue. I’m not very good with Linux and have yet to backup a Linux server. I followed the directions I found here

 

http://www.tecmint.com/how-to-clone-linux-systems/

 

for installing Mondo Rescue on Ubuntu. After installation, I ran mondoarchive as the guide suggested. Mondo failed to run. It generated the attached log and asked that I mail it to you for support. I appreciate any help you can give me regarding this!

Hi,

 

I have installed mondo software on my linux 6 machine and performed the backup. I have created a new vm and attached an unformatted hard disk on my Oracle VM and inserted the boot CD and tried to perform the backup but unfortunately the backup is getting failed as it is saying the below error.

 

 

                               

 

The below screenshot is of my original server

 

 

 

I am not able to provide mondorestore.log as the server has no IP.

I think I messed up stuff here :-( My plan was to deliver also a 3.0.5 +
mindi 2.1.8 to solve some of the issuess that can be backported to that
branch. It will then be clean in that case. I didn't followed correctly
the process to publish 2.1.7 which is creating these problems.

Thanks a lot for these feedback. Encorages me to publish 3.2.0 sooner
than later.

Mondo 3.2.0 on Fedora 20 - problem with root VG in LVM-on-RAID

Hello everyone,

 

I am testing out Bruno's new 3.2.0 Fedora 20 packages from the test repo.

 

My kernel is 3.16.3-200.fc20.x86_64. Fedora 20 is installed on 2 x 64GB SSD. /boot is on Linux md RAID 1, everything else is in LVM on another Linux md RAID 1 and Grub 2 is installed on both devices.

 

DVD verification at the end of Mondoarchive passes OK but on booting in “compare” mode Mondo is unable to mount the LVM-on-RAID volumes. If I do the same on another otherwise similar Fedora 20 install but on a single disk (i.e. root VG still in LVM but no RAID) the mount list still shows zero size for the LVM volumes but can mount them OK and "compare" is happy - so looks like it is the Linux md RAID that is causing the problem.

 

Anyone have any suggestions? From searching around it looks like LVM-on-RAID configurations can be problematic. Since FC17 there has been a kernel panic on booting from a Mondo rescue disk; 3.2.0 fixes that so a big step forward as far as I am concerned!

 

Regards,

Andrew

other types of backup (tar)

Hello,

I have quick question regarding possible types of storing backup data via mondo.
Is it possible to save backup as *.tar files instead of *.iso? Maybe you can help with some hint how to achieve that?

Michal

HP ILO Virtual CD problem on restor

Hello,

I need your help on a problem with an HP DL580 G7 server. I have an error message when I try to restore my machine with ILO virtual CD
I'm running on Debian Jessie (3.14-2 kernel-amd64)
mondoarchive seems to be correct (the logs are attached)

I boot from the CD, and when mondo mount it (find-and-mount-cdrom) the media is not found. I have an error for each test (/dev/hd?, /dev/sr[1-9] ...)

is not a valid block device.

But for /dev/sr0 and /dev/scd0 I receive the following error:

No medium found

I conducted
recovery tests on HP EliteBook 8540w and it works fine (with the kernel 3.14-2-amd64), the cd is mounted on /dev/scd0 (burned cd)

Here is the status of my system at the time of the backup:

/etc/fstab

...
/ dev / sr1 / media / cdrom1 udf, iso9660 user, noauto 0 0
/ dev / sr0 / media / cdrom0 udf, iso9660 user, noauto 0 0

dmesg when I insert an ISO through ILO

I change find-and-mount-cdrom to test /dev/sg? (in addition to /dev/sr? and /dev/scd?) and it does not work


/usr/sbin/mindi

...
# Force To Be Some modules included
FORCE_MODS = "usb_storage usb_common nls_utf8 isofs nfs_acl nfs hpilo sr_mod usb_storage hid_generic ehci_hcd usbcore usbhid sd_mod ehci_pci uhci_hcd"
....

Mondoarchive method:

# mount nfs <NFS IP>:/share /share
# mondoarchive -OVn nfs://<IP NFS>:/share -g -s 1000m -E /share

Sorry I cannot have a mondo-restore.log logs, the console in the ILO does not allow me to type a character... I returned to a shell (like expert mode) and I cannot do anything (and the machine is very far from me physically)

I browsed the forums and other users have encountered similar problems with the ILO.
One of an issue is to connect a virtual cdrom and start mondoarchive to be sure to have the right modules at time of backup (but not ok in my case)
Other issue : we must join in FORCE_MODS mindi the list of usb modules (this does not work, have you an list of modules?)

I also tried with my physical drive on my station (burned cd and link to ILO) and it did not work

When I get myself mondorescue.iso (/var/cache/mindi/mondorescue.iso) and mindi-bootroot.65600.img (in mondorescue.iso) with mount on my system it works (without boot on CD)

Would you pre-requisite for the ILO is able to mount the cd and untarring all.tar.gz?

Restore - wait long time for raid 1 md device sync

Hello,

Is there an option to disable waiting for raid software sync in case of using software raid?

I was trying today to replace my HDDs (from 100 GB to 2 TB) and looking at /proc/mdstat I have seen that I have to wait 4 hours (probably more as it is a simple estimation).

My system is a quite old one (Centos 5.10) and most probably my SATA controller is the bottle-neck here. However, during OS installation the MD devices are just created and re-sync is done in the background, without interfering with the installation.

I have understand that it is best to wait for resync before do anything else - but could there be an option to disable it in 'expert' mode.

Waiting for your feedback,

--
