:?: I am not sure if this has ever been addressed in present or past. But suppose I make a backup of a computer that has 1 IDE and 2 SATA hdds. When backing up it properly does the MBR, First sectors and each partition on each drive into the network share, however on restoring them (assuming I put a fresh set of untouched HDDs from the static bags. ) Only the first drive truly gets restored, in the case hda since it is enumerated first. Each subsequent drive however does not see any restoration. When noting what is going on it is not properly writing the MBR back to the disk to set up the basic partition holders. If I manually create the partitions albeit blank, restoration across all drives in system continue as would be expected, else wise fails out with invalid second argument. noting that if I drop to the shell and issue a

Code: Select all

dd if=sda of=/dev/sda
and

Code: Select all

dd if=sdb of=/dev/sdb
, (where the if=sd[a,b] is the MBR backup in the PartImage directory for the particular backup I am working with] then continue on it works properly. I am wondering if maybe there is something that I am missing., but it is highly repeatable and has existed in pretty much all versions thus far that I have seen. I am not sure if this affects only ide/sata mixed multi-drive backups or all multi-drive/multi partition backups.

Hi Jon,
yes, this has been addressed. You might rename hda (or sda) to askme_a, hda1.000 to askme_a1.000, and so on -- so to be asked for the target (3.00 only ; if 2.01.19, rename hda to hde, which is unlikely to exist, for the same result).

Regards
Natan

got it., tried it and it definitely works., Thank you! As I read this is the manual approach to it conveying this. Is there some underlying issue that would make it too difficult to implement it in the script as such that if it comes off hda, sda, sdb it would return to hda, sda, sdb respectively without the renaming convention in order to choose the designated target? [in terms of speed of automation?]

~jon

--EDIT--. It asked for which drives to place the info at, however after it finished with hda, and started moving on to the renamed, and relabeled sda, it would give invalid second argument /dev/sda1 , and then back out, and attempt the sdb restore with the same method of failure. Once again, therename method does work if I set up the basic partition table on the sda and sdb respectively.
..
Any ideas?

I prefer to let it as it is, because many people are used to seeing these files written after the device name... Moreover, we can hope h* devices will finally disappear, as the SATA/SCSI layer (libsata) is to replace the old libata in the linux kernel field.

Now for your issue, what you can do is ask for a shell at the end of the restoration, then copy the /tmp/x.log file into a local disk, so you can copy its contents on the forum for me to give it a glance (mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/dos; cp /tmp/x.log /mnt/dos).

Thanks
Natan

Parted does not attempt to write to sda or sdb., They have not received proper partitions to be written to., Here is the posted x.log file from /tmp after it finished, ctrl-c'd just before the reboot process. I could see where it wrote out the records for hda, but not for the others via dd. I look at the log and see it attempts to write the first sectors, but not the main partion table out.

Thanks Jon for the feedback. I think I've found something wrong, too.
It's as if you were the first guy ever to restore more than one drive, I can't believe it :D

lol., :) of course I would be the one. It appears that if you could do an iterative loop for each device that has files enumerated for it in the same manor the first drive is completed, it should work. (since the main thing just seems to be that it is not restoring out the basic partition table prior to parted attempting to write to a non-existing first partition of the second and tertiary drives. What are your thoughts [I feel another update about to happen] lol.

Obviously enough...
=>PING 3.00 Beta 20081111 is available, utterly bug-free :D

rc.ping definitely corrected. I ran it through the test, with the fresh drives again with the partition table killed out and corrupted (aka like brand new drives). This time it went forward and did the proper partition table setup, then restore via parted. I would have to say that this is pretty much good to go forward with stable ;). I will attempt to break use( :twisted: ) it over the next week, but for now it appears all questions and problems have been answered. :D

Thank you again!

Hello Natan, just tested latest beta PING 3.00 Beta 20081111, like it very much. Everything works. I just wanted to know what you think could be slowing my restore writes to disc? It's not a big deal but just wandering, I use the same image for restoring my C: which is stored in my partition D: with the current beta 3.00 20081111 Disc I get an average 900 MiB/min = 2m:26 to restore C: However when I use the latest stable version 2.01.19 Disc it restores the same image at 1.40 GiB/min = 1m:33. Was a driver removed? from this beta...It works either way though.

Dell XP200 Windows XP Pro SP2. :)

Hi Yankin!
the kernels are certainly not same, and it could be somewhat difficult to say what might have caused this change. Really, really hard. Are conditions exactly same in both cases ?

Personally, I've never ever reached more than 500 MB / minute...!! 1,400 is really fast !

Hello Natan, yes conditions are exactly the same, nothing has been added to my box (setup). The current image that I'm using to restore C: which resides in D: was created by the current beta 20081111. I also have a earlier image created with the current stable 2.01.19. I tried restoring sucessfully both images using both the current beta 2081111 and current stable 2.01.19 and results the same for speed in restoring C: 2.01.19 is just much faster by 60 sec. Maybe when I upgrade my HD to the newer SATA it should be a bit faster as my HD is about 3 yrs old now.

Anyways probably is the newer kernel but at least it loads about 30 seconds faster, thanks man I really appreciate evrerything you do. This program rocks, it works great with VISTA as well. Whats really cool is I can low level format my HD and zero it out to like a "new drive" with no formating done. Boot to my external and do a restore to my unformated HD, it even remembers to create my partition D: unallocated of course, but after I boot up quick format and D: is ready to roll, drag and drop backup D: from external to partition D: and all is well. :P :mrgreen:

You might use (cautiously) a Cmd_3 script to format the part... (example, mkntfs -Q /dev/sda2).

Otherwise, you might add in your image directory an empty .zip file called after the partition to format (ex.: sda2.zip). PING will try to unzip it to the sda2 part, and the rule is here to format the filesystem if it can't be mounted and there's a .zip to unzip. According to what is found in the p.table, choices will be NTFS, FAT32 or EXT3.
Not much tested either, but it's an opportunity to have it done for free :lol:

Looks like I can restore now, which is awesome. I still don't like the new UI. The old one seemed much friendlier. The page where I have to type "YES" is a bit confusing and the subsequent screens are just downright scary. If I have two devices, hda and sda, with the image on sda, I can see PING try to fdisk sda and fail. It fails because sda contains the image to restore from, but I freaked out before I saw the failure message . . . I certainly didn't want to lose that partition. Anyway, something to consider.
