Hello Mark.

I had something similar on and openSUSE 12.3 machine when running a xen kernel.

My problem was identical to yours. I was getting no xen-kernel modules loaded for the running xen kernel.

Watch your error messages that go past at boot time.

I noticed that Mindi was trying to load the non-xen kernel modules for a standard kernel.

It looks like Mindi is getting confused as to which installed kernel is running, and what modules to load.

I guess one option to stop this happening might be too uninstall the non-xen kernels, and just keep the
latest version of the xen kernel on the system?

Can not find CDROM and lsmod is empty

Hello

I am trying to do a restore of a OL 6.6 system (running the RHEL kernel) on a VMWare VM.  I can boot from the mondo iso, but mindi can't find the CDROM device.

When I run lsmod, it doesn't return any results... completely empty.

I have tried using FORCE_MODS.. and also creating a failsafe kernel.  Both have the same problems.

I have tried versions of Mindi/Mondo (2.1.5-1/3.0.3-1)  and (3.0.0-1 / 3.2.0-1) with the same results.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Mark

MondoRescue mhvtl

Dear all,

 

I’m testing backup/restore scenario where is vtl presented via iSCSI in configuration.

So, my question is, is there any way how to “smuggle” script providing couple of iscsiadm command into mondorescue.iso image, running during boot (after network initiation)?

 

Thank you in advance for reply.

 

Cheers,

Jiri

package version compatibility list

Hi all.

Is it possible as  point of reference to have a table on the downloads page telling us what version of Mondo
Rescue packages are meant to be used with each other please?

I for one would find this most helpful.

maondoarchive 3.2.1-beta try

Hi Bruno, hi list,

I did a try this afternoon and I can confirm this latest beta
3.2.120150305095420 is ok for me and resolved any bugs I got
(crash when using some options and also the big time taken to do a
backup seen with mondo-3.2.020150213052601.

There is still the small issue regarding mindi in the debian 64b
packages: mindi is looking for /usr/sbin/parte2fdisk instead of
/sbin/parte2fdisk and mondo stops raising a SIGSEGV. It can be
worked-around if one create a soft link.

Please find attached a report and archive.log file.

Kind regards,
Philippe

RHEL7 Issue

Hi there

 

We’re running mondo on all RHEL6 servers successfully and are now deploying our first RHEL7 servers.

Mondo is run by a cronjob whichs mounts an nfs share, creates some directories and copies log files.

Now I’m having some issues with the same cronjob on RHEL7.

 

This is how we invoke mondo.

 

# mondoarchive -OVi -d /path/to/nfs -I /dev/sda -p $hostname -S /tmp -T /tmp -G -N -s 4g

 

Usually /tmp provides enough capacity for temp and scratch but on RHEL7 it fills up completely so I added some local disks under /data which is now 140G in size.

So I changed –T and –S to use /data but they still fill up to 100% and I have no idea why?

/dev/sda is 72G but not even close to full, only basic installation and no data.

 

When temp and scratch run out of space this happens.

 

afio: Ready for volume 2 on /data/mondo.tmp.v9TVwZ/tmpfs/9.afio.gz

afio: "quit" to abort, anything else to proceed. >

 

This is how the filesystems look like outside of a mondo backup.

 

# df -h

Filesystem                    Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on

/dev/mapper/sys-root          9.8G  1.7G  8.1G  18% /

devtmpfs                      2.9G     0  2.9G   0% /dev

tmpfs                         2.9G     0  2.9G   0% /dev/shm

tmpfs                         2.9G  8.8M  2.9G   1% /run

tmpfs                         2.9G     0  2.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup

/dev/mapper/sys-home          2.0G   33M  2.0G   2% /home

/dev/mapper/sys-opt           2.0G   84M  1.9G   5% /opt

/dev/mapper/sys-tmp           3.9G   33M  3.9G   1% /tmp

/dev/mapper/sys-var           3.9G  609M  3.4G  16% /var

/dev/sda1                     497M   88M  410M  18% /boot

/dev/mapper/data-data1        137G   33M  137G   1% /data

 

Tested with the newest beta build

(Running with 3.2.0 segfaulted with –I option, but that seems fixed in the 3.2.1 beta, yay :) )

 

mondo-3.2.120150305095420-0.rhel7.x86_64

mindi-busybox-1.21.1-1.rhel7.x86_64

mindi-3.0.120150305095420-0.rhel7.x86_64

 

On RHEL6 we never upgraded mondo because “it just works”.

 

mondo-3.0.2-1.rhel6.x86_64

mindi-busybox-1.18.5-1.rhel6.x86_64

mindi-2.1.2-1.rhel6.x86_64

 

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Logs are attached.

 

Thanks

Sandro

Restore Problem

Hi

 

Apologies if this is a silly question but I feel like I’ve done the relevant searching but still can’t find a solution to my problem. I’m using mondo to backup a system and restore it to a new disk, something I’ve done before on other machines.

 

The backup works fine but when I try and restore from the mondo media that is created the system kernel panics during the restore. The error that I get is:

 

/init: error while loading shared libraries: libm.so.6: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

 

When I did some searching one of the solutions I found was to explicitly include this file using the mindi config file. I did this but it didn’t solve the problem. Here is a copy of what I put in the deplist.txt file:

 

#------------------------- STUFF ADDED BY THE USER ----------------------------

#---vvvv     vvvv     vvvv  list your stuff here!  vvvv     vvvv     vvvv

/lib/libm.so.6

/lib/libc.so.6

/lib64/libm.so.6

/lib64/libm-2.12.so

#---^^^^     ^^^^     ^^^^  list your stuff here!  ^^^^     ^^^^     ^^^^

#------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Many thanks in advance

yes

Are you actually booting Mondo Rescue from the USB drive?
Yes,We are Issuing the command "nuke" from BOOT prompt and get the fallowing error on console : /dev/sdb1 not a valid block devise

Hi Iranna.

If you have created the USB as a bootable iso image maybe that’s why you are getting the error - /dev/sdb1 is not a valid block device?

AFAIK you can make a USB a valid block file system that is not bootable but mountable.

If it’s made into bootable media then I’m not sure if you can actually mount it as well when it has booted?

Kind Regards,

Keith
