clonezilla help required

after installing/configuring the Clonzilla server addition, I successfully booted the client and create image of the client on the /home/partimage(on clonezilla server).

But when I boot the client to restore the image, clonezilla says "that no image found"

I mean I cant restore the image on client due to the error "no image found", even though the image is exist on the server uner /home/partimage/.

please help/suggest

Shalom,

What protocol is being used to access the server?

I would check network boot configuration and the server logs for errors.

It would be helpful to know what distribution the server is using to provide you better help.

Hi thanks SEP

PXE

logs are empty, as per the "/opt/drbl/dcs" that
"Client jobs are logged in '/var/log/clonezilla-jobs.log',"
but /var/log/clonezilla-jobs.log is empty nothing inside
# cat /var/log/clonezilla-jobs.log
Mon March 23 21:41:06, start clonezilla logging.
and nothing more.


>It would be helpful to know what

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP 2 i586

I installed the drbl by first installing the rpms manually, then run the following commands
# /opt/drbl/sbin/drblsrv-offline -l 0 -s `uname -r`
# /opt/drbl/sbin/drblpush -i
# /opt/drbl/dcs

Ok the client(also sles10sp2i586) has two partitions /dev/sda1(swap), and /dev/sda2(/), but when I try to save the image of the client hard disk (/dev/sda) ... it only save the /dev/sda2 file system only.
Second when the image of /dev/sda2 save on clonezilla server under /home/partimage directory, properly, I got the following message on the clients(pxe booted) console

Saving DMI info...

I have attached drblsrv-offline, drblpush -i, and dcs output

Please help me in this matter... asap

Re: clonezilla help required

following are the errors I got when I try to restore the image

when I select the > "restore Disk restore_an_image_to_local_disk"

Clonezilla image directory: /home/partimage
No disk image is found in /home/partimage .. Make sure you already saved image

when I select the > "restoreparts Restore_an_image_to_local_partition"
No disk or partition image directory is found in /home/partimage! program terminated!!!

I am totally confused why the restore praogram doesnt able to see/check the image directory under /home/partimage... even though the directory "2009-03-23-21-img" is present uner /home/partimage ... having this client's image saved properly
