FAILED: Waiting for external binary to start Mindi failed to create your boot+data disks.

Reported by: rima Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: high Milestone: 2.2.9
Component: mondo Version: 2.2.8
Severity: blocker Keywords:



when I was backing up a server with the following command:

mondoarchive -Oi -d /var/log/yy/mondo_backup -E /xxxx -N -s 700m -5

it got stuck in "Waiting for external binary to start"

and timed out with:

failed to create your boot+data disks.

Checking other of your tickets I saw that I should check the inodes and:

Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on /dev/cciss/c0d0p2 262144 7696 254448 3% / /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 26104 59 26045 1% /boot none 210595 1 210594 1% /dev/shm /dev/cciss/c0d0p10 262144 88 262056 1% /home /dev/cciss/c0d0p3 1310720 11302 1299418 1% /opt /dev/cciss/c0d0p8 262144 1078 261066 1% /tmp /dev/cciss/c0d0p9 262144 47060 215084 18% /usr /dev/cciss/c0d0p7 524288 3864 520424 1% /var /dev/cciss/c0d0p5 786432 29 786403 1% /var/log/yy /dev/cvfsctl1_xxxx

3298304 3290038 8266 100% /xxxx

So it uses the last FS for scratching and its inodes are occupied. Could I put somehow that it doesnt uses this FS (which is not even from the local disk as you can see)?

Thank you so much for your help

Use the -S and -T options as per the man page to redirect all temp/scratch files to another FS.
