Mondorescue - backup over NFS - CDROM problem

Hello,

I've created NFS backup using mondoarchive, then using unetbootin I created bootable USB with /var/cache/mindi/mondorescue.iso. When I boot this Mindi linux from my USB, I got similar message as here: http://mondorescue-mailing-list.679749.n3.nabble.com/Mondo-devel-Mondorescue-backup-over-NFS-wants-to-restore-from-CD-td4025660.html
Which basically is: "
Optimizing IDE drive access...cat: can't open '/tmp/CDROM-LIVES-HERE': No such file or directory 
I don't know where the CDROM lives. Optimization cancelled. 
Executing preliminary script 
The mondorestore command was not found on your backup media 
It may mean your device is not seen correctly. 
Check driver list and error messages. 
Type 'exit' to reboot the PC"
and I got bash access, but no mondorestore command can be found.

So my first question regards this problem and I would like to know how to boot and restore using this iso image. I also attach my log files. I use Linux Mint 17 with repositories for Ubuntu 14.04, all newest versions.

I have also another more general question regarding NFS backup. I would like to create backup in some other form than ISO files, is there any other format possible? So I would like to know how to backup my data with no compression and no archive, preferably pure data. I tried to use option -u for streaming device but still I get data that are a little bit archived and I do not really know how to deal with them, because I see binary files all over the backup.
My use case is to get as pure data as possible with no concern about disc space.

Regards,
Michal

mondo failing when creating iso due to size over 4GiB

 

Greetings,

 

When running mondo to create a iso image backup on nfs I am seeing this error:

 

File ./archives/83.afio.bz2 is larger than 4GiB-1.

-allow-limited-size was not specified. There is no way do represent this file size. Aborting.

 

In the mondoarchive man page I did not see such an option  or an option that would let me pass an option to mkisofs.  Is there an option to do this?  Or another way to handle this?  

 

Here is the command that is used to launch mondo:

 

/usr/sbin/mondoarchive -On 10.42.194.75:/fs_ehi1/images -d pdcspdb1 -p pdcspdb1 -N -T /var/crash/tmp -S /var/crash/tmp -E "/tmp|/home|/var/log|/opt/splunkforwarder|/mysql/logs|/mysql/op|/mysql/data|/mysql/backup|/tmp/mnt|/opt/teamquest|/opt/netiq|/usr/openv|/opt/bmc|/var/cache|/var/crash|/var/tmp|/tmp|/sys|/proc|/mnt|/misc|/media"

ERROR /dev/sda does not exist and a segmentation fault

I'm attempting to clone HP Proliant without much success. 

I booted with:   expert denymods="cciss"

And when I get to the disk layout form I get:

/dev/sda does not exist

I continued even though it said it might not work. And once it got to configuring the LVM died with a
segmentation fault.

I'm attaching the logs to this message. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm in a real bind here.

Problem with P2V restore with Software Raid and LVM

Hi

Apologies for posting here but I've been working on converting a physical server to a VMware host using mondo rescue and I can't get it to work.

So I have successfully created a backup, and successfully restored it to the new machine. When I try and boot the machine I get the following error:



I have tried various things to try and recover grub, boot rescues, manual grub reinstallation, but none of them seem to have fixed this problem. Is anyone able to help please?

Many thanks

Riddle

Mindi v2.1.7 fails on centos7

I am having trouble getting mondoarchive to work after upgrading to centos7.  I am using this command to create an iso file on a disk that has 40GB of free space:
mondoarchive -Oi -d /mnt/backup -s 4480m -p `hostname -s`-`date +%d-%b-%Y` -zNG -E "/mnt|/var/named/chroot/proc|/var/lib/BackupPC|/srv/Sources" -S/mnt/backup -T/mnt/backup

My mindi.conf file is:
#
# Example of mindi configuration file
#
# $Id$
#
# Force these modules to be loaded at restore time first, in that order:
# FORCE_MODS="cciss hpsa"
#
# Prevent these module to be loaded at all at restore time
# DENY_MODS="kqemu vxfen fdomain ipmi_si"
#
#EXTRA_SPACE=92160              # increase if you run out of ramdisk space
EXTRA_SPACE=320152              # increase if you run out of ramdisk space
#BOOT_SIZE=40960                # size of the boot disk = 2^15 + 2^13
BOOT_SIZE=262144                # size of the boot disk = 2^18
# MINDI_ADDITIONAL_BOOT_PARAMS="devfs=nomount noresume selinux=0 barrier=off udevtimeout=10 acpi=off"

# MINDI_DEFAULT_BOOT_OPTION="interactive ipconf=eth0:10.0.0.1:255.0.0.0:10.255.255.255:10.2.3.4”

I note that the mondoarchive log file has a line:
INFO: Your boot loader is GRUB and it boots from /dev/sdb
which is wrong, the machine boots from /dev/sda1 using grub2

Help in getting this working would be very much appreciated.

false errors from Mindi regarding LVM partitions

Hi all,

I am not sure this is important but just to let you know:

Into the mondorescue log I can read:

running: mindi -V > /tmp/mondo.tmp.pecIMQ/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp 2>
/tmp/mondo.tmp.pecIMQ/mondo-run-prog-thing.err
--------------------------------start of output-----------------------------

--------------------------------end of output------------------------------

This is due to the Mindi use of fdisk -l which doesn't properly read any
LVM structures and send these messages to stderr.

It was already found (Ticket http://trac.mondorescue.org/ticket/652 and
closed at least for ubuntu packages)

My environment is:
Gnu/Linux kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP
Debian GNU/Linux 7.6 (wheezy)
mindi-busybox 1.18.5-3
Mindi v2.1.7-r3184
mondoarchive v3.0.4-r3177

Kind regards,
Philippe

Fighting what appears to be software raid on the restore

I'm not sure the problem is or isn't software raid, but attempting to 
"nuke" or "expert" restore with mount-me fails.

The nuke restores to completion but fails to boot, indicating that the 
device is not valid.

Further, using expert, and running mount-me indicates there is an 
improper filesystem, superblock, and lots of other suggested problems.

The machine has 3 'containers', md0, md1, and md2.

This is a Centos 6.5 64-bit machine.

What should I send to get assistance?

Thanks for any help.

Mondoarchive failures

Hi,

 

I’ve been noticing a couple of things with the current beta:

 

[root <at> c3po pclark]# rpm -qa | grep mondo

mondo-3.2.020140703124333-0.fc20.x86_64

[root <at> c3po pclark]# rpm -qa | grep mindi

mindi-3.0.020140703124333-0.fc20.x86_64

mindi-busybox-1.21.120140703124333-0.fc20.x86_64

[root <at> c3po pclark]#

 

1)      If I set a size of say 4G for my iso files, occasionally I’ll get an “archive too big for the 4G iso” warning. The archived data appears incomplete at that point.

2)      My last creation attempt with default archive sizes doesn’t give me that error, but I can’t seem to get a 100% status indicator on my large files:

 

---progress-form---4--- TASK:  [*...................]   3% done; 196:36 to go

---progress-form---1--- I am now backing up all large files.

---progress-form---2--- ISO 177: [*************.......] 63% used

---progress-form---3--- Please wait. This may take some time.

---progress-form---E---

---progress-form---4--- TASK:  [*...................]   3% done; 195:28 to go

Done.

Writing any remaining data to media

Please be patient. Do not be alarmed by on-screen inactivity.

Call to mkisofs to make ISO (ISO #177) ...OK

Done.

Done.

Backup and/or verify ran to completion. Everything appears to be fine.

/var/cache/mindi/mondorescue.iso, a boot/utility CD, is available if you want it

Data archived OK.

Mondoarchive ran OK.

See /var/log/mondoarchive.log for details of backup run.

Execution run ended; result=0

Type 'less /var/log/mondoarchive.log' to see the output log

[root <at> c3po ~]#

 

There seems to be a discrepancy, 3% done yet the backup run completes with no errors? I attempt to use these archvies for a bare-metal DR test and I’m generally gigs off on the restored / filesystem.

 

Mondoarchive.log attached.

 

Thanks in advance!

Fwd: Seeking a reliable backup/restore utility for Linux (Lubuntu)

I just installed Lubuntu on an old Windows/XP laptop.  And, now I want to backup the drive on which Linux is installed to a USB key so that I can restore from the backup later (if needed). 

Because I'm new to Linux, I want a foolproof GUI-based backup/restore program so that I won't have to deal with the Linux command line. (A few days ago, I tried tinkering with the command line, but my tinkering caused an unrecoverable error--requiring that I reinstall Linux.)

From various sources, I've learned that Mondorescue may have a program I can use; however, I understand very little on the Mondorescue.org web site, which seems to be written for experts--not newbies. And, I'd probably go blind or mad before I understood anything

Would you be willing to tell me what program I need to download, what steps I must follow to install it, and how to use it for a backup/restore operation? Yeah, I know that this is a lot to ask; so, if you'd rather not deal with a newbie, could you please refer me to a Linux expert who'd be glad to help?
