Description

Hello,

I got message when restored in nuke mode with nopart and noresize: Mountlist analyzed. Result: " Gap prior to /dev/sda5. 44 MB unallocated on /dev/sda." Switch to interactive mode?

I have following partition configuration: /dev/sda1 44MB /dev/sda2 extended /dev/sda5 10GB /dev/sda6 XGB ....

There is nothing wrong with partition configuration. Administrator created this weird configuration and system is correctly installed and running, aswell with correct fstab and so on. So, why should nuke mode break and offering me interactive backup? It is restore on the same machine as it was backed up, so there should be automatic non-questioning mode. Either there is partition naming inconsistency, or some unused space (especially when nopart mode), there should be assumed that machine that was backed up has sane admin which set up everything well before backup. So I would appreciate at least some 'nocheckfstab' mode.

Thanks

  • Severity changed from normal to blocker

I have to change it to blocker since I don't have any possibility to change this than by reediting source and make own packages. And I need it. Can't let unexperienced user to deal with questions in interactive mode.

Could you attach your /var/log/mondorestore.log file so that I can see what is happening. Even better if you can run mondorestore -K99 in order to have a more verbose one.

I added also some configuration files for better understanding. It is normal that, while using extended partitions, device names don't follow.
