Description

Hi,

I need help for the following error "Not enough room for temporary ramdisk ". I have the same error on multiple systems of RedHat? version 6.3, 6.4 and 6.5. This error seemed to be an old one but even if I update mondo and mindi packages, I keep having the issue.

Here are the versions currently installed on my system : mindi-2.1.6-1.rhel6.x86_64 mondo-3.0.3-1.rhel6.x86_64 mindi-busybox-1.18.5-3.rhel6.x86_64

Mondo backup fail with error "FATAL ERROR. Not enough room for temporary ramdisk (TurnTgzIntoRdz?)" in mindi.log

Already tried the following mindi versions : mindi-2.1.3-1 mindi-2.1.5-1 mindi-2.1.6-1

Also tried the following mondo versions: mondo-3.0.2-1 mondo-3.0.3-1

We already update mindi-busybox from version 1.18.5-1 to 1.18.5-3 because we were facing a bug during the restore.

Thanks !! Gaelle

  • Owner changed from gtandol to bruno
  • Status changed from new to assigned

It seems you use the default values: EXTRA_SPACE = 120000 BOOT_SIZE = 65600

But that you need much more (maybe you have larger drivers than what we're used to):

INFO: Ramdisk will be 163840 KB

Could you try to change in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf the above values to much larger ones (around 200 MB each) and see what happens.

Hi,

I tried to change values in /etc/mindi/mindi.conf. I tried the following values but I'm still having the same issue:


## 1st try


EXTRA_SPACE=250000 BOOT_SIZE=250000


## 2nd try


EXTRA_SPACE=1000000 BOOT_SIZE=1000000


## 3rd try


EXTRA_SPACE=100000 BOOT_SIZE=200000


## 4th try (last one)


EXTRA_SPACE=100000 BOOT_SIZE=500000

Here is some info on my system:

Could you try again with the latest beta at ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/test/rhel/6/x86_64 (use mondo 3.0.5 and mindi 2.1.8 beta, not the next version please).

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Should be fixed with either the 3.0.5 beta or 3.2.0. Please reopoen if not the case. Maybe in link with #749
