    Hello There :)

    I have several Linux Server with all the Same Operating System and the Same config on it. So i like to make a bootable CD with the Whole OS and all Settings on it for a faster Installation.

    I have tried to do this with Acronis True Image Echo Server für Linux in Console Mode, i dont have X-Servers on the Servers.

    The Machines have installed CentOS 4 or 5 with 2 Harddrives in a Software RAID (md0..etc).

    I have installed the Acronis Linux Server and Tryed to make a raw backup of the whole Software RAID.

    First i tryed with trueimagecmd --list, but this command dont Shows me anything else but Titles :(

    Num Partition Flags Start Size Type
    ---- -------------------- ----------- ---------- ---------- -----------

    And no partition etc.

    so i tryed with commands like:

    trueimagecmd --create --raw but after this, im not shure what i have to enter with the --harddisk:*** option, i dont now how Acronis Labels and manage my Partitions and Harddsik. i tryed several Options, but nothing appears. i always do something wrong in the command Line of trueimagecmd.

    *Command line parameters are incorrect or incomplete.*

    Are anybody expierenced to work with Acronis on the Shell and can give ma a Tip for my Adventure to make a Bootable CD with the OS complteted on it?

    Thank you very Much :)

    kind Regards

    Hello Tiho,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Linux Server Disk Backup Software.

    Please try to build and use the latest version of snapapi26 module the following way:

    - Login under root account and issue the following in command line:

    # dkms status

    It will give you the Snapapi module version you have installed. For example:

    # dkms status
    snapapi26, 0.7.17, 2.6.9-1.667, i686: installed
    #

    Here the Snapapi module is 0.7.17. Please remove this Snapapi module version (change the number, if you have another one):

    # dkms remove -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.17 --all

    - Then please install the RPM files from the following links:

    http://download.acronis.com/support/dkms-2.0.16-1.noarch.rpm
    http://download.acronis.com/support/snapapi26_modules-0.7.28-1.noarch.rpm

    # rpm -Uhv dkms-2.0.16-1.noarch.rpm --force --nodeps
    # rpm -Uhv snapapi26_modules-0.7.28-1.noarch.rpm --force --nodeps

    - Load the module tarball to DKMS:

    # dkms ldtarball --archive=/usr/lib/Acronis/kernel_modules/snapapi26-0.7.28-all.tar.gz

    - Build and install the new module:

    # dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.28 \
    -k <KERNEL_VERSRION> --config <CONFIG_FILE> --arch <KERNEL_ARCH> \
    --kernelsourcedir <PATH_TO_KERNEL_SOURCES>
    # dkms install -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.28 \
    -k <KERNEL_VERSRION> --config <CONFIG_FILE> --arch <KERNEL_ARCH> \
    --kernelsourcedir <PATH_TO_KERNEL_SOURCES>

    - Please note that:

    <KERNEL_VERSION> is the version of your running kernel, you can determine it by "uname -r" command.

    <CONFIG_FILE> - path to the config file of your running kernel. It's usually located in your /boot/ directory.

    <KERNEL_ARCH> - kernel package architecture, you can determine it with "uname -m" command.

    <PATH_TO_KERNEL_SOURCES> is the directory with the sources of your running kernel. For example on red-hat based Linux distribution you should be able to find the sources in /lib/modules/<KERNEL_VERION>/build directory.

    - The last step (reloading the module):

    # rmmod snapapi26
    # modprobe snapapi26




    If the problem persists, please collect some information to let us investigate it thoroughly:

    Please create Linux system report as described in this post.

    Then submit a request for technical support. Attach all the collected files and information to your request along with the step-by-step description of the actions taken before the problem appears and the link to this thread. We will investigate the problem and try to provide you with a solution.

    Thank you.

    Hi.
    I have a problem compiling snapapi26 module for kernel 2.6.23.1-21.fc7, under FC7.
    Even so kernel headers available etc.
    ====================== cut ============================
    DKMS make.log for snapapi26-0.7.10 for kernel 2.6.23.1-21.fc7 (i686)
    Mon Apr 14 20:02:08 EEST 2008
    make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.23.1-21.fc7-i686'
    CC [M] /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.o
    /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.c:185: warning: ‘request_queue_t’ is deprecated
    /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.c:205: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before ‘kmem_cache_t’
    /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.c: In function ‘block_map_destroy’:
    /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.c:309: error: ‘struct session_struct’ has no member named ‘s_ppages’
    /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.10/build/snapapi26.c: In function ‘block_map_init’:
    ====================== cut ============================
    I believe that version (0.7.10) is outdated, thus would like to try to install newer version.
    But
    http://download.acronis.com/support/snapapi26_modules-0.7.28-1.noarch.rpm
    is not available anymore.
    Could you please tell me where to download the latest version of snapapi26 modules ?
    Thanks.
