Backup a live system

  • Here is the clonezilla-part:

    Code
    ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/42_clonezilla ###
    menuentry "Clonezilla Live" {
    set isofile="/boot/clonezilla-live-2.2.3-25-i686-pae.iso"
    loopback loop $isofile
    linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live live-config noswap nolocales edd=on nomodeset ocs_live_run="ocs-live-general" ocs_live_extra_param="" keyboard-layouts="" ocs_live_batch="no" locales="" ocs_daemonon="ssh" vga=788 nosplash toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=$isofile
    initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
    }
    ### END /etc/grub.d/42_clonezilla ###

    If the checksum matches, try rebooting now?

  • The problem is your /boot folder is not on your root drive (partition). While I am very familiar with that configuration (separate boot partition) from my Gentoo days, /boot isn't mounted when grub is looking for the ISO file.

  • Hey Guys


    Love the idea of this plugin.
    I have created a backup of my system drive using this plugin (/media/9b6b07ad-2d63-4267-8129-25fbe8940664/omvbackup), now what I would like to is grab that backup and put in onto another computer (as a backup file) so then I can use clonezilla on the different system to restore the image to another drive without the possibility of screwing up my current omv system (id prefer to do this on another system while I'm still new at it) , how would I go about this?


    Also I'm still running OMV 0.5.53 Sardaukar, and backup plugin 0.5.2 does this mean I wont be able to boot into clonezilla directly from the webui? I don't seem to have those options


    Cheers

  • Is the other computer running Linux? If not, I don't think it would keep proper permissions if you put it on a Windows system.


    The easiest way to put it on another system would be to use the usbbackup plugin to sync the shared folder user for the backup to a usb stick


    The clonezilla option is on the OMV 1.0 version of the plugin. You could still boot the clonezilla cd on your system though.

  • I don't think there will ever be a restore that works from the GUI. Restoring by booting clonezilla is still the best way in my opinion.


    And if I reboot from the WebGui in Clonezilla - I can manage backups remotely from shh? or only need locally is near the server and monitor / keyboard / mouse?
    I never used Clonezilla ...

  • It will only once boot CloneZilla, then again it defaults to OpenMediaVault.

  • Hey Folks,


    got trouble while shrinking my ext4 root volume --> short version: I made a clean Install and now i want to get back to my old config ( made a backup bevore ) 8o
    The old install was an upgrade from 0.5 to 1.x, so the clean install is helpfull i think
    Any hints what files I should recover and what files should stay from the new install??


    Of course it would be very nice if my whole config work with all users, shared folders, plex, smb, and so on can get recovered --> the orig config.xml is usable.


    Is there a way to get the testing recovery funktion to try this out?
