Description

Hi, I'm using Mondorescue to back my servers (VM, Physical, etc...) up.

I am using the NFS backup option and I have a PXE setup to restore my backup by using the network. It works fine, but I feel that it is quite complicated to maintain one ISO image per server. (mabe am I doing it the wrong way thought...)

How do I proceed:

When I make my backup, I create an ISO image which I upload to my NFS server by using the NFS backup option of mondoarchive.

Then, I have to extract the vmlinuz and the initrd from the ISO image to get it aside the ISO file

Then, I have to configure my PXE configuraiton file, with such entries:

Example:

mymachine-######ENTRY-BEGIN###### LABEL mymachine kernel /mondo/mymachine/mymachine-vmlinuz append initrd=/mondo/mymachine/mymachine-initrd load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_blocksize=1024 ramdisk_size=128000 rw root=/dev/ram iso_mode acpi=off apm=off devfs=nomount exec-shield=0 pxe prefix=mymachine-19700101 INTERACTIVE ipconf=eth0:dhcp nfsmount=172.29.12.110:/tftpboot/mondo/mymachine MENU LABEL mymachine mymachine-######ENTRY-END######

Of course I have a little script that does the job.

My request folows:

It would be great to have only one ISO image to boot from; then you select the ISO image (the backup of the concerned machine) from the network (eg: NFS) and then you restore the backup.

Maybe it is already possible, but I didn't find any way to get it working by myself...

Thanks you by advance Best regards Tux-59
