mondorescue quits after making the catalog


Hi Guys

I'm not a computer man unfortunately, having a basic level of managing 
my Linux system, but the Mondorescue was my absolute essential 
application since the very first day when I started using Linux 6 years 
ago, and it doesn't work on my systems for about 3 years now... :-) I 
still had my Debian system when it suddenly just stopped working on my 
other Lenovo laptop, and nothing have changed after getting my new 
Lenovo and changing to Ubuntu, or to the Xubuntu... :-(  I miss it so 
incredibly much!!!

Can anyone help me to get it working again? Please!!!!

I would like to do the backups on my 1TB USB external hard drive.

I only got the /var/log/mondoarchive.log and the /var/log/mindi.log 
created by mondo...  I have no any /var/log/mondorestore.log file on my 
system....

Thanks a lot in advance!!!!!!!!

Please try to be a bit more detailed in your instructions if you can 
help me, because of my basic level... Thanks!!!!!!!!

Csaba

MDADM not creating raid entries under /dev..

Hi,

I'm new to Mondo and decided to try the Mindi boot disk to see if I could
access my system drives as part of a recovery strategy.  From what I can
tell, the boot process works except the raid arrays are not being mounted. 
mdadm is running and says the arrays are created, but I cannot find the
device under /dev, /dev/mapper, /dev/md*.  After this the LVM fails because
it can't find the raid devices. 

I'm running a home built server with the following:
Ubuntu 14.04LTS 
Mindi v2.1.6-r3311
mondoarchive v3.0.4-r3311
mdadm - v3.2.5 - 18th May 2012

As part of the create process I need to specify the
vmlinuz-3.13.0-43-generic kernel in the /boot directory.

As a test I modified the boot /usr/lib/mindi/rootfs/etc/init.d/rcS script
and commented out the following lines so I could run mdadm manually with a
verbose switch.  
#PauseForRaids
#StartRaids
#StartMpath
#StartLvms
As far as I can tell mdadm thinks it's working fine.  I can see processes
start with ps for each raid device when I issue the assemble command but no
actual devices.  I tried different options on mdadm like scan & force, but
no luck.

Gave up on MondoRescue in Debian 7.7

Just as an addendum to my posts of November 24 and 25, I gave up on MondoRescue in Debian 7.7 - I finally got it
installed, but when I attempted to use it, it thought the partition was Windows 95 (it was actually
formatted as EXT4 as part of the standard Debian installation) and then it could not find the boot
partition, at which point it aborted.  I was already unhappy because when I had installed it, it brought
in mdadm as a dependency, which I did not want because this is a single hard drive, not a RAID array.  And
even though I uninstalled MondoRescue and all the new pacakges that were installed along with it
(including mdadm), I'm a little fearful that it may have screwed up my ability to reboot the system.  That
is because, when mdadm was uninstalled, it printed this rather ominous message:
 
Removing mdadm ...
[ ok ] Stopping MD monitoring service: mdadm --monitor.
W: mdadm: I'll update the initramfs, but if you need MD to boot
W: mdadm: with initramfs, your system may be left unbootable!
 
 
Again, there's no RAID array here, so I'm hoping this is not an issue, but it upsets me that MondoRescue
specified this as a dependency in the first place.  I am not that conversant in Linux to begin with, and if
the system won't reboot I will have to reformat the drive and reinstall everything from scratch and
spend a week reconfiguring it, which ironically is what I was attempting to avoid by using MondoRescue in
the first place.  All I wanted was a way to automatically back up my working system to an ISO file on an
external drive at regular intervals (from a cron job), with the ability to exclude a couple of large
directories.  I know MondoRescue can do that when it works, because I used it for precisely that purpose
on a Centos system a couple of years ago, but I'm fairly sure that version did not install anything like
mdadm at that time.
 
The other problem is that I simply could not get answers to my questions (see my previous post about the
question mdadm asked).  My thought is that if MondoRescue had not specified mdadm as a dependency, I
might not have had many of the problems and questions I had.  Maybe it would have even detected my
partition correctly, I don't know, but what could have been a very good solution for me has turned into
kind of a nightmare, because at this point I still don't know if this system will ever be able to reboot

BTRFS on Ubuntu 14.04

Hi

Just wondering if Mondo Rescue will support btrfs filesystem?  Will
there be a Ubuntu 14.04 debian package.  I use fakeraid & software RAID
( Raid on motherboard by both intel and marvell and asmedia controllers) is this
supported?  I tried looking at your website but could not find this
information.  Fakeraid might be the same thing a hardware raid so I think this might be answered.

Thanks
Martin

Can't install in Debian 7.7, what am I doing wrong?

Just an addendum to my previous post:  I found out that by installing the firmware-realtek package from
the nonfree repository I could get rid of most of the W: messages, except for these:
 
W: mdadm: no arrays defined in configuration file.
 
W: mdadm: unchecked configuration file: /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf
W: mdadm: please read /usr/share/doc/mdadm/README.upgrading-2.5.3.gz .
W: mdadm: no arrays defined in configuration file.
 
 
Again, I have NO raid arrays, I just did a standard install of Debian to my hard drive.  It seems like all the
issues in this install not related to the firmware-realtek package have been associated with this single
program, mdadm.  I'm just wondering, why does Mondo require it as a dependency?  Would it break Mondo if
I disabled or uninstalled it?

If uninstalling mdadm would break Mondo, then I still would like to know if I should have answered "NO" to
this question - or would it have made any difference?  My main concern is I don't want to get the system into a
state where it won't boot!

> Configuring mdadm

> Once the base system has booted, mdadm can start all MD arrays (RAIDs) specified in
/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf which have not yet been started. This is recommended unless multiple device (MD)
support is compiled into the kernel and all partitions are marked as belonging to MD arrays, with type 0xfd
(as those and only those will be started automatically by the kernel).

> Do you want to start MD arrays automatically?

Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

Can't install in Debian 7.7, what am I doing wrong?

That did it, thanks!  But now I have questions about the install.  I should preface this by saying that I am
running a straight Debian install, no special partitioning, and only a single hard drive (not even a DVD
drive).  Definitely no RAID array.  During installation, the following question appeared:

> Configuring mdadm

> If the system's root file system is located on an MD array (RAID), it needs to be started early during the
boot sequence. If it is located on a logical volume (LVM), which is on MD, all constituent arrays need to be
started.  If you know exactly which arrays are needed to bring up the root file system, and you want to
postpone starting all other arrays to a later point in the boot sequence, enter the arrays to start here.
Alternatively, enter 'all' to  simply start all available arrays.  If you do not need or want to start any
arrays for the root file system, leave the answer blank (or enter 'none'). This may be the case if you are
using kernel autostart or do not need any arrays to boot.

> Please enter 'all', 'none', or a space-separated list of devices such as 'md0 md1' or 'md/1 md/d0' (the
leading '/dev/' can be omitted).

> MD arrays needed for the root file system:

The default was 'all', but I changed it to 'none' - was that the correct thing to do?

Then it asked:

> Configuring mdadm

> Once the base system has booted, mdadm can start all MD arrays (RAIDs) specified in
/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf which have not yet been started. This is recommended unless multiple device (MD)
support is compiled into the kernel and all partitions are marked as belonging to MD arrays, with type 0xfd
(as those and only those will be started automatically by the kernel).

> Do you want to start MD arrays automatically?

The default was YES and at this point I was really confused so I just hit OK.  Now I'm wondering if I should have
done either of those differently, and if so, how do I get back to those screens to change them, since they
only appear during the initial install?

Then during the install, this was what was displayed:

=====

Note the multiple W: messages, which make no sense to me - do I need to be concerned about these?

The other thing that concerns me is where it says "Starting MD monitoring service: mdadm --monitor" - is
that something I need to have running on this system?  What does it do?

I'm really nervous about this right now because the last thing I want to do is mess up this server or have Mondo
make backups that can't be restored. So, please tell me if I should have done anything differently!

Can't install in Debian 7.7, what am I doing wrong?

I attempted to install Mondo Rescue on a Debian 7.7 based system by doing this (adapted from the page at http://www.tecmint.com/how-to-clone-linux-systems/):
 
wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/debian/7/mondorescue.sources.list
sudo sh -c "cat mondorescue.sources.list >> /etc/apt/sources.list" 
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install mondo
 
When I ran "sudo apt-get update" I got the following output (stuff about other packages removed):

=====

I tried installing anyway and it failed:

$ sudo apt-get install mondo

E: Unable to locate package mondo

I checked the /etc/apt/sources.list file and at the end the following lines had been added:

deb ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org//debian 7.1 contrib
deb-src ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org//debian 7.1 contrib

If I do uname -a I get
Linux server 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.63-2 x86_64 GNU/Linux
And if I do cat /etc/debian_version it shows the version as 7.7

Am I doing something wrong, is the repository missing files, is Debian 7.7 not supported, or what?

Mondoarchive always freezing on a particular host

Hi,

I am using mondoarchive/mondorestore for years with great success and I 
thank you for it.

I am using it on more than 15 production CentOS 5/6 servers running as 
VMs under KVM.

However, recently the automatic, cron-based mondoarchive procedure on 
one of these (CentOS 5 x86_64) VMs has stopped working properly; it 
freezes at some point of the process (which is always different).

Today I retried having upgraded to the latest versions of the RPMs 
published by your project, yet the same problem reoccurred. I am 
attaching the mondoarchive.log in a zipped file for your reference.

Can you please help in determining the cause of the problem and suggest 
a solution?

I am available to provide any additional information you may request to 
assist you in any way I can.

Thank you in advance,
Nick
