    • How to restore from backup

      Before upgrade to OMV 4.x, I created a back using OPENMEDIAVAULT-BACKUP 3.11. I can't find a method on how to restore from the backup. Does anyone have steps to restore?

      I saw a lot of threads that just talk about not using it but hardly any that says how to restore from it if it is already done.

      Thanks

      It is difficult to restore with the OMV 3.x version of the plugin. I highly recommend creating a backup of the system with clonezilla.

    • I understand that, at this point of time, I don't have many options as I've already created a backup using OPENMEDIAVAULT-BACKUP 3.11 and upgrade to OMV 4.x. So if there is a process available I'll try it hoping it'll work. If does not, then I have to start from a fresh install.
    • I didn't get the impression that you had already done the upgrade from your post. The general steps are here but they are not cut&paste steps. Are you having problems with 4.x that make you want to go back to 3.x?

    • Thanks, I'll try it out on a VM. Hopefully it'll work okay.

      One question on the restore process: How do I boot SystemResuceCD.

      My issue started after upgrade to OMV 4.x. More in this thread.

      I installed OPENMEDIAVAULT-BACKUP 3.11 but it only gives me one option for backing. How do I get clonezilla or the new archiveFS backup?

      The same way you booted the OMV installer or you can add to your grub bootloader from the kernel tab of omv-extras.

      Personally, I don't think OMV 4.x is causing that issue.

      That is the OMV 3.x version. The OMV 4.x version only works on OMV 4.x and the version is 4.0.1.

      You boot the clonezilla disk or you can add the clonezilla iso to your grub bootloader from the kernel tab of omv-extras.

      fsarchive is only an option for OMV 4.x.

      I don't see fsarchive on OMV 4.x. After installing the extra's for OMV 4.x, I only see OPENMEDIAVAULT-BACKUP 3.11. I am missing anything? I am planning to setting up a new server and want to be plan it better than my current setup. I am looking at taking a backup both via fsarchive and clonezilla. I found clonezilla installation option under OMV-Extas > Kernel.

      Within the backup plugin you can select the method to use. One of it is fsarchiver. Others are dd and rsync.

      You need to enable the omv-extras testing repo.
