Mondo Backup fails on OEL 7.2

I have recently installed Mondo Rescue on a server as a proof of concept. 
The following is the command I am using: 

mondoarchive -O -V -i -s 4480m -d /mnt/backup -I / -E /mnt/backup -T /tmp -4

I cannot backup the filesystem at this time due to the following error:

Mindi failed to create your boot+data disks.
Fatal error... Failed to generate boot+data disks
---FATALERROR--- Failed to generate boot+data disks
If you require technical support, please contact the mailing list.
See http://www.mondorescue.org for details.
The list's members can help you, if you attach that file to your e-mail.
Log file: /var/log/mondoarchive.log
Mondo has aborted.
rm: cannot remove ‘/tmp/mondo.tmp.jZ7mZs/mountpoint.15388’: Device or
resource busy
Execution run ended; result=254
Type 'less /var/log/mondoarchive.log' to see the output log

I am attaching the logs here, any help would be appreciated.

Re: Issues with SLES 11 SP4 on installing last release

Hello,

I had the same issues... some of the dependencies are not on the mondo download page or available on the SUSE
install media....I elected to go with the last version that did not require the perl modules...
3.0.4...however I am having to recreate the grub  MBR on the target disk after recovery as the recovery cd
does not seem to copy it in properly...I have submitted mondoarchive/mondorestore logs for this issue,
but have not received a response....The issue may be due to the fact that SUSE uses uuid links in grub
instead of the real disk device, so it changes when the disk is reformatted...just a theory...I know I do
not have those issues with RHEL 5 or 6

Best Regards

Bill Anderson

Issues with SLES 11 SP4 on installing last release

HI we are trying to install the latest Mondoresque on SLES 11 SP4.

 

WE have issues on dependencies for examples

 

warning: perl-Module-ScanDeps-1.18-25.7.x86_64.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID dcef338c

error: Failed dependencies:

        perl(Module::Metadata) is needed by perl-Module-ScanDeps-1.18-25.7.x86_64

 

but this metadata is not in the original rpm packages….if we install the found  perl-Module-Metadata-1.000027-4.2.noarch.rpm

 

warning: perl-Module-Metadata-1.000027-4.2.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID 3dbdc284

error: Failed dependencies:

        perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.18.2) is needed by perl-Module-Metadata-1.000027-4.2.noarch

        perl(version) >= 0.87 is needed by perl-Module-Metadata-1.000027-4.2.noarch

 

 

and so on ….any advice ?

Re: mondorescue on SLES 11.1

Hello Victor,

thank you for providing the link...I had have worked with Bruno many times over the last several years with
various issues, and I keep forgetting how important it is to pair up the correct revisions of mindi and
mondorescue...upgrading to 3.0.4 resolved the booting issue. Most of my experience is with redhat, so I
am encountering a new issue...after the recovery completes and the new disk is booted, the filesystems
are using uuid devices instead of the generic ones (sda, sdb, etc)...the system complains about not being
able to find the root device to mount. I can fix this by booting into expert mode , mounting the hard disk and
editing /boot/grub/menu.lst, device.map and /etc/fstab. I find that new uuid's are created when the
recovery is performed, but mondo is not replacing the old ones on these 3 files with the replacements....

I have never run into this with redhat

Best regards

Bill Anderson

 Hello Bill,

 /usr/share/mondo/restore-scripts/mondo/grub-MR
 calls grub-install, so check in /var/log/mondorestore.log
 (in the restored machine):
     Now
 I'll use grub-install
     ...
     grub-install returned 0 (if ok) or 1 (if

 Another solution:
 #
 mondorestore -Z mbr
     Then grub-MR
 mondorescue shell-script should call grub-install SLES
 shell-script saved in iso file.

 Concerning versions, I advise you to check the
 Mondorescue FAQ#38:

 Subject: [Mondo-devel] mondorescue on SLES
 11.1

 Hello,

 We are running SLES 11.1 on
 some IBM blades using a GRUB loader. We successfully created
 a mondoarchive of the system on an iso image. The image
 boots and restores the system ok with no errors, however,
 the target disk is not bootable after it completes. The logs
 do not indicate any errors during the recovery. I Booted the
 system off of the mondo iso into expert mode, mounted the
 target disk and everything looks good  in grub. fdisk shows
 a good partition layout. the system has no external
 filesystems, and is not using lvm, everything is under / on
 /dev/sda

 I am using the
 following:

 mondo-2.2.9.4-3.7
 mindi-busybox-1.18.5-3.sles11
 mindi-2.1.7-1.sles11

 Here command that was used to create the
 iso:

 mondoarchive -Oip
 $HOSTNAME -d /mondo-archives -s 9g

 after this iso was used to recreate the system,
 and booted from the target disk, we got a blank console with
 no message.

 suspecting that
 the MBR was not being copied in properly, I

 booted into expert mode,
 mounted the target drive, chroot to the target drive and ran
 the following

 grub --batch
 < /etc/grub.conf

 still
 no go.

 A 2nd iso was
 created using this command:

 mondoarchive -Oip $HOSTNAME -d /mondo-archives
 -s 9g -l GRUB

 this time the
 system booted with the message, "No Operating System
 Found"

 I booted into
 expert mode again, mounted the target drive, chroot to the
 target drive and ran the following

 grub --batch < /etc/grub.conf

 this time the target drive
 booted ok

 I tried a 3rd iso
 using the -l RAW option, same results as with -l GRUB

 I submitted all of this info
 to the sourceforge mailing site, but they rejected it with
 no reason.

 I have attached
 the mondoarchive and mondorescue logs for review.

 would you take a quick look to
 see if you see anything that stands out? Any assistance
 would be appreciated....

 thanks again

Mondorestore error creating SoftRAID

Hello,
I trying to restore but mondorestore fails when creating SoftRAID device.
Looks like it has come some extra characters in the command.

"mdadm --create --force --run --auto=yes /dev/md0 
--level=raid1 --raid-devices=2 
--uuid 142f8d84:c6365b68:13913ca2:0593b65e 6 -e 1.0 1 --chunk=64 /dev/sda1 d
/dev/sdb1 d"

But it also seems to be a problem with "mdadm", when I try to run a
corrected (or any mdadm) command in the shell I get error "RUN_ARRAY failed:
Invalid argument". This command works when started from the installation
DVD.

Attached logs from restore, mr-parted2fdisk.log was empty 

Best Regards,
Bo Karlsson

Problems with compare using (x)ubuntu14:04 and latest released version of Mondoarchive

Hi Folks,

I am setting up a test archival server using 14:04 and the last 
appropriate released version of Mondoarchive. I have been using Mondo 
for quite a while and find it to be a very useful set of software. I 
have used both the manual recovery and the full bare metal recovery.

Back to the problem.

I normally backup to a local but external hard drive then copy and burn 
to DVD(s) when needed.
Initially the compare of the DVD and the Server gave a result of OK, 
successful. But the last two did not say OK but said that there were 
errors. Also said that the restore log had been copied to the hard 
drive. I could not find it on the hard drive.
Is there a way of writing the log to a USB key on the server instead of 
the hard drive when booting from the DVD.

I, therefore, tried saving directly to a DVD RW  and it did not finish 
when I included my standard option to verify. The files were on the DVD 
and I could manually recover them and compare with the original files 
but verify always failed. The problem seemed to be that it could not 
find the DVD device, whereas it was able to write to the DVD successfully.

I have not attached any log files because I cannot find the compare log 
files and that is why I am asking about the USB key.

Any other suggestions will also be tried.

Mondo Rescue: NFS Based is failing on Linux VMWare Server

Hello, Mando Rescue Support team,

 

I’m facing some problem while trying to run rescue for Linux (RHEL 6) using NFS method. Initially I have successfully created a NFS based backup for Red Hat VM to remote NFS Share. It created following six disk based images:

 

 

It also created another iso for recovery boot on /var/cache/mindi/mondorescue.iso

 

After booting server with rescue CD, and trying to recover OS using NFS option it’s failing every time. Please see enclosed log file mondorestore.log.

 

Could you suggest what missing here?
