Mondorestore

I have a proliant DL380 with dual core and a some fiber cards in it runnign RHEL 5.2 and I create a mondoarchive. I purchase a DL380 quad core with no fiber card and I use the archive from that server to clone it. After it was done now it will not reboot. I get to the "Starting Audit [FAILED]" then when it goes to "Staring Logging" it hang there. Now it saying "INIt Respawing to fast." Anyway I need soem help on what I did wrong. I'm not that familiar with mondo. We have a Linux consultant come in to assist us and he is gone and I'm just trying to get my arms around Linux. I'm a 14 year HP-UNIX sys admin. So any assistnace would be great.

Re: Mondorestore

Maybe, you had SELinux enabled on the source computer, you can check with sestatus command.

Mondo won't restore the SELinux labels, so, try starting with selinux disabled.

To do that, press "a" on the GRUB boot menu and add selinux=0 and hit ENTER.

Por que hacerlo dificil si es posible hacerlo facil? - Why do it the hard way, when you can do it the easy way?

Re: Mondorestore

Shalom,

You probably didn't do anything wrong.

The hardware differences caused the problem most likely.

I would boot into single user mode and work some changes in.

Intervene at the grub prompt. Pick a kernel, edit the boot command to include -s or single.

B to boot the modified command line.

Problem is probably in /etc/inittab

Compare that to a working system and try to find and correct the problem.

I found cloning within the DL380 server line works better with a pay for product called acronis. http://www.acronis.com

Re: Mondorestore

I have try to boot to single user mode and it still hang and will not allow me to t a boot prompt. I read up on how to boot to singles user mode and I did those steos and still no success. I have been working with Linux for over 4 months but not extensive so I'm still learning and usign "google' to find out how to do thinsg. Anyway is the following steps I have listed correctly to go into Single user mode:

Press the space bar when you get to the GRUB window. (This is the section where the kernel is selected) To get to single user mode:
a. Press space bar
b. Press â eâ for edit
c. Scroll down to the kernel line is on
d. Leave one space at the end and of the kernel line and type â sâ for single
e. Press enter
f. Press â bâ for boot

And this is what I have been doing and it is still hanging.

Re: Mondorestore

You should try booting from a rhel 5.2 rescue cd and see if you can locate the problem in any of the log files.

Re: Mondorestore

I going to try something else. The mondorestore is giving me fits. I wish it was as good as ignite-ux. Anyway you have to give up soemthing when you go to open source..

Thanks for all you assistance.

Re: Mondorestore

Not sure I agree with your last statement. Ignite is for HPUX on HP hardware. Mondorescue is for Linux on any hardware. That is a huge difference when it comes to writing software. Anyway, it's a great tool, but it can take some Linux savvy to use it.
