CD-R Write Failure Using cdrecord, Track 1 has unknown length, Use tsize Option

Hi,

When I attempt to use "mondoarchive" to create a CD-R disk using my 
backup to my PLEXTOR DVDR PX-716A device, I receive the following output 
message from the "cdrecord" executable and no media is created. At the 
current time, I can not create any backups on CD-R media.

The attached log file has the complete output of this "mondoarchive" 
execution. The following log file extract, illustrates the problem.

> 1995-2010 Jörg Schilling

I was able to re-create this message by executing the following 
"cdrecord" command as follows:
> [spencer <at> daisy]$ cat mondorescue.iso|cdrecord -eject -waiti fs=4m 
> dev=1000,1,0 speed=4 -
> cdrecord: No write mode specified.

> [spencer <at> daisy]$

I was able to get the "cdrecord" command to work after adding the 
"tsize=<size>" option to the "cdrecord" command. This required a 
"mkisofs -print-size mondorescue.iso" execution in order to determine 
the "tsize" value. The "cdrecord" man page shows a sample code fragment 
to complete this task:
> cdblocks=‘ mkisofs -print-size -quiet ... ‘
> mkisofs ... | cdrecord ... tsize=${cdblocks}s -

Another work-around may be to specify the "TAO" writing mode, rather 
than using the default "SAO" writing mode which is used in the 
"cdrecord" program that is available to me. Since I'm not a CD media 
expert, I don't know if there is any issue with creating CD-R media 
using the "TAO" writing mode.

Please let me know if you require any additional information.

Any other work-around or suggestion would be appreciated

mongoarchive GUI doesn't create temporary directories

I've been trying mondoarchive using its GUI. When it asks for the tmp
directory, it appears to use mktemp to create a temporary directory,
then displays that path and asks you to update it, e.g.

	/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n

Because this is a Fedora 19 system with the spectacularly stupid
"tmpfs on /tmp" setup, I modify that to:

	/var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n

However, the GUI never creates that directory leading to errors like:

	sh: /var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp: No such file or 
directory
	sh: /var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp: No such file or 
directory
	sh: /var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp: No such file or 
directory
	sh: /var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp: No such file or 
directory
	sh: /var/tmp/mondo.tmp.2wjb8n/mondo-run-prog-thing.tmp: No such file or 
directory

And finally ending with a lovely segmentation fault. Am I daft or is
this expected behavior?

Trouble booting mondo from PXE

Hello
I am using Mondo to restore a server via pxe, the  sever I am restoring is an IBM X3550 M4 with multiple Intel network interfaces (OS is Redhat Enterprise 6.4). Here are the versions I am using:

mondo-3.0.4-1.rhel6.x86_64
mindi-2.1.7-1.rhel6.x86_64
mindi-busybox-1.18.5-3.rhel6.x86_64

The restore is failing when the network card is trying to configure, in the console I get:

eth0: error fetching device information: Device not found.

When I took the image, here is the info for the network interface its using:

# ethtool -i eth0
driver: igb
version: 4.0.1-k
firmware-version: 1.61, 0x090e8000
bus-info: 0000:06:00.0
supports-statistics: yes
supports-test: yes
supports-eeprom-access: yes
supports-register-dump: yes
supports-priv-flags: no

I also tried to force the driver in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf with:
FORCE_MODS="igb"

However it still failed,

When it drops to the shell, I have no interface configured, only loopback and I cannot ping the NFS server.

I tried doing lsmod command and it showed the igb module, when I tried loading it with "modprobe igb", it gave some  errors that it could not locate this module:

Cannot load: /lib/modules/2.6.32-358.el6.x8
6_64/kernel/drivers/pps/pps_core.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.32-358.el6.x86_64/kernel/drivers/pps/pps_core.ko

no such file or directory - to that effect

I checked these files were on the original server, but not from the restore shell.

I then tried adding these driver files in /etc/mindi/deplist.txt but they were still not in the restore boot environment on the second restore attempt. Unfortunately I cant get the restore log from the server as I have no network connectivity to it :(

Appreciate any help or hints.

Thanks

/var/log/faillog, /var/log/tallylog and /var/log/lastlog

Mondo Gurus:

I have been having issues taking a good mondoarchive image successfully on most of our RAC Servers. These
servers are really huge in size (32CPUs/100GB Memory). Their filesystems are also large compared to all
my other servers (Running to several terrabytes).

I have /tmp which is set to 20Gigabytes and that keeps filling up each time we kick off a mondoarchive. I
constantly need to keep an eye on /var/log/faillog, /var/log/tallylog and lastlog files since these
sparse files sometimes grow so large that they are bigger than the filesytem they reside on. 

	a) I make sure that I make them zero bytes before I kick off a mondoarchive.
	b) Sometimes I login to another window and continue to trim them if they grow rapidly
	c) I have also included these files in the "exclude" list using the syntax below:
# mondoarchive -OiV -d /var/cache/mondo -p HOSTNAME-DATE -N -E
"/dev/shm|/opt/app|/app/clarity|/oraexp|/tmp|/proc/kcore|/var/log/faillog|/var/log/tallylog|/var/log/lastlog"
-s 4400m

All the three steps haven’t helped me in filling up /tmp.

Am I doing something wrong with the syntax? 

Is there a limitation for the number of filesytems/files in the exclude paths?

Has anybody faced these issues before? Any input you provide would be very much appreciated.

Mindi Restore Problem Multiple Active Partitions

Hello,

 

I’m using OpenSuse 13.1 x64. I’ve got a new install of OpenSuse and MondoRescue. When I do a test NUKE restore it completes and brings up the GRUB2 editor. All the GRUB settings match my OpenSuse setup. But when the computer reboots I get the error message

 

“Multiple active partitions. No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key”

 

I’ve been researching via Google, and the only advice I can find is to use GPARTED and set the single boot flag.

 

I’m going to try that tomorrow when I get back to work. But I wanted to see if anyone else has run into this with Mindi?

 

Thanks,

Daniel

OpenSuse 13.1 w/ BTRFS Slow and Huge Backup

Hello,

  I’m testing out MondoRescue with a new install of OpenSuse 13.1. My setup is as follows

 

Hardware Raid 10, looks like a JBOD to Linux

Partitioned-

  Swap 16 GB

  / 40 GB

  /home 256 GB

  /var  1.5 TB

 

All formatted with BTRFS except swap.

 

It’s a fresh install of OpenSuse 13.1 with no data or extra applications installed, just patches.

 

I ran mondoarchive with the following settings

 

Backup to Hard Drive

Break up into DVD size files

Backup extra attributes

Gzip

Compression Level 9

Do NOT backup /var and /home

 

The backup process says it will require 12 DVD’s and 5 hours to backup.

 

How can it require that much time and space for a fresh install?

 

Is it trying to backup BTRFS snapshots?

 

Thanks,

Daniel

Mondoarchive failing w/segfault

Mondo team:
 
I have the same Mondo components installed on 3 systems.  Same hardware configurations:  HP Proliant DL380G7 running RHEL 5.7.  (The first system, where mondoarchive works is now patched up to RHEL 5.10.).  mondoarchive works on one system, but fails with segfauls on the other 2.  Here is what I have:
 
        afio-2.5-1.rhel5
        buffer-1.19-4.rhel5
        mondo-3.0.4-1.rhel5
        mindi-2.1.7-1.rhel5
mindi-busybox-1.18.5-3.rhel5
 
My mondoarchive scripts runs the following mondoarchive command on 1 of the 2 failing systems.  The 2 systems write to 2 directories under the same NFS mount. 
 
        mondoarchive -O -E "/qad|/prog|/proddevl|/cqreports|/cqreportsdevl" -p klpjlinux2 -n nfs://kpjfps01.kolmarpj.osg.com:/devl_data_2 -N -G -9 -S /mondo/klpjlinux2/scratch -T /mondo/klpjlinux2/temp -d klpjlinux2 -s 4600m
 
        mondoarchive -O -E "/qad|/prog|/proddevl|/cqreports|/cqreportsdevl" -p klpjlinux1 -n nfs://kpjfps01.kolmarpj.osg.com:/devl_data_2 -N -G -9 -S /mondo/klpjlinux1/scratch -T /mondo/klpjlinux1/temp -d klpjlinux1 -s 4600m
 
mondoarchive runs, but then hangs (never returns a prompt).  The last line displayed is: “Checking sanity of your Linux distribution”.
 
I don’t see any errors in /var/log/mondoarchive.log or /var/log/mindi.log.  See attached files from the klpjlinux2 system.
 
Here are the segfault messages from klpjlinux2:/var/log/messages:
