Can't find/mount USB's using boot disk

Hi everyone,

I'm having a problem using the restore disk, specifically I'm unable to use it because it can't find or mount any external storage devices, which is where all the recovery tools are!

Changing the usb=/dev/sdx boot parameter doesn't help things, no matter what I try, the process of mounting the device and untarring the additional tools fails, saying 'dev/sdx is not a valid block device".

When I'm dropped into the shell, fdisk -l shows the internal HDD, but no matter what USB stick or port I use, fdisk never shows any external devices.

I assume I'm missing a kernel module on the boot disk? I know for a fact that I'm missing xhci_hcd, but as far as I know that should only cause problems for usb 3.0 ports, and this problem affects usb 2 ports as well. I can't seem to get xhci_hcd onto the boot disk, there appears to be a bug in how the name is processed, which leaves mindi trying to add 'xhci-' which doesn't exist.

I've attached the mindi, mondoarchive, and mondorestore logs from my attempts, as well as the mindi deplist.txt and mindi.conf.

Thanks in advance for any help!

- Will

Guidance Needed

Hi,
 
I created a backup of my Centos system, it resides in the folder, myback, on a NAS hard drive. Perhaps this is a novice's mistake? I don't have an iso disk to boot from as hundreds of web articles describe. Of course my system died and I would like to restore it but can't, for the life of me, find any articles written to guide me through the process.
 
I've done a clean install of Centos 6.5, have network connectivity, Mondo is installed and some basic programs. Can I restore from mybackup or am I out of luck?
 
Suggestions are greatly appreciated,
 
John V.

Can't create an ISO backup file with command line

Hello,

I have a problem using mondorescue on Debian 7 x64 with command line.
My command line :
#mondoarchive -O -i -E "/home " -F -s4096m -N -p test -d /backup

/backup is a CIFS mount

What is the problem (see log file) :
genisoimage:  Permission denied. Unable to open disc image file
'/backup//test-1.iso'.

See the double // on the name file : is it a bug ?

Anyone can help me please ?

Thanks
Best regards
Stephane HOFMAN

Running Mondo on IA64 RPM-based Linux Distributions

Hello all - 

I've used Mondo on all of my i386 and x86_64 based systems, and I love it as a DR solution.  I have a particular server that uses the IA64 Itanium architecture running SLES 10 with GRUB as the bootloader.  The issue I have is that in order to install mindi, it requires syslinux to be installed.  Looking at the syslinux.org site and reading through some of the mailing list archives, it appears syslinux does not support - nor do they ever intend to support - IA64-based architectures.  Am I correct in that statement, and if so, can you suggest any alternatives?  

Chris

Re: Fedora 20 fail to restore

Further experimentation, this behavior does not happen with a compressed
(my command line used -0 before, use -1 and it works) backup.

Fedora 20 fail to restore

Hi!

 

I’m running latest beta:

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

mondo-3.2.020140421115705-0.fc20.x86_64

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

mindi-3.0.020140421115705-0.fc20.x86_64

mindi-busybox-1.21.120140331114902-0.fc20.x86_64

 

And can’t restore from the interactive restore. It says it’s successful but no files are recovered from the archives.

 

[root <at> c3po ~]# mondorestore

Execution run ended; result=0

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

[root <at> c3po ~]# ls /restore/

 

Nothing returns.

 

Error message in the log is:

 

INFO: Tarball #4005 --- 45 matches

DBG2: [Main] mondorestore.c->restore_a_tarball_from_CD#1618: Mo executable, this shouldn't happen !

DBG1: [Main] mondorestore.c->restore_a_tarball_from_CD#1633: command = ' 2>> /tmp/25117.21905 >> /tmp/25117.21905'

DBG2: [Main] mondorestore.c->restore_a_tarball_from_CD#1688: Fileset #4005 processed OK

 

(shouldn’t that be ‘no executable’ ;) )

 

Create and restore logs attached.

 

Thanks!

MondoResuce availability for K/Ubuntu 14.04

Hi Folks,

Pardon me - I am mailing for the first time on this list.

Yesterday night I upgraded from Kubuntu 13.10 to 14.04.
+ I installed few more softwares.
Today I wanted to backup my linux image using mondo rescue.
However it's available only till 13.10.

Can you help me in getting mondorescue installed on 14.04 ?  
What packages should I be using to compile from source (and steps / dependencies to do so) ?
Or atleast by when can I expect a 14.04 deb file to be available ?

Thanks and Regards,
Anshul Ranjan

Mindi Fatal Error

I successfully installed Mindi Busybox, Mindi, and Mondo on my computer 
in that order.  When trying to run Mindi for the first time, I got the 
message shown in the second of two attached screen shots.  Also attached 
is the mindi.log file per the message request in the terminal window.  
My computer is an old one with an AMD Athlon XP 2000 processor and 1500 
MB of RAM.  After Windows XP went dormant, I thought that I would try 
Linux (Loaded Linux Mint 16) to learn something new.  Have had a lot of 
fun and headaches, e.g. trying to get Quicken to work through Wine; 
still unsuccessfully.

While I am reasonably competent at solving most computer problems in 
Windows, and can follow instructions from the web as well as most, I 
know little about Linux and Bash commands.  Mondo may be beyond my 
capabilities, but hey, I love a challenge.  Any thoughts would be 
appreciated.

Mondoarchive fails on KVM container

Hi,

 

Trying to run Mondarchive against a machine with a 8GB KVM container. Mondo fails to create ISO #13 (3GB archive size) during the live filesystem run because ISO13 is too large. It’s like this large file isn’t being detected as a large file and being sliced accordingly.

 

-rw-------.  1 root root 8.1G Apr 12 09:48 mondorescue.qcow2

 

It’s a Fedora 20 VM I made booting a mondorescue.iso to check if the new ISO was bootable. No OS is yet installed on the image.

 

Log attached.

 

Thanks!
