Dear All, I have been using Acronis True Image version 9.1 and i can say i am very satisfied with the product. Now, i am facing the following problem for over a month (tested with acronis v. 11 also): I have installed different linux distributions on a PC intended to act as a file server. This server consists of the following hardware: Intel core duo 6550 processor, asus "p5d deluxe" motherboard, adaptec raid 31205 controller, 2 gigs of RAM etc. It also has 10 SATA disks attached to the adaptec controller and two sata disks connected to the SATA controller situated on the motherboard, the latter ones intended to be used for system and system backup and the former ones for data (acronis images). This server is intended to act mainly as a backup/restore server for acronis images. My wish was to backup every PC coming to oiur department and to restore it if necessary, while all images would be kept on that server. So, when i connect a PC to the same LAN with this server and i try to backup files from the PC to the server, everything is working OK, ie the backup image is stored to the server. This scenario was achieved both with FTP and SMB protocols. However, when i try to restore the PC with an image from the above server, then i get the message "corrupt archive" and of course the restore process is stopped, with both FTP and SMB protocolls. I have tried other variations, such as use of XFS/EXT2/EXT3 on both the 10-disk array and the 2 system disks, but the results were the same. I am 100% sure that it has nothing to do with the filesystem selection also. I have also tried to put the image on the system disks and on the array disks, but still the same. Actually, now i am 100% sure that the problem is irrelevant to the disks, ie i have removed the RAID controller and still the same! So it doesn't seem to be an issue of filesystem, disks, controller hardware, architecture selection. The only variation that had succesfull results was to put the image on a USB external disk, attach it and mount it to the server and then i managed to restore the other PC via network (SMB and FTP tested) without problems. So, it doesn't seem to be a networking issue other? In Greece i have already been given a hint to check for compatibility issues between the chipset and kernel, but i am wondering, if that was is the problem, then why does the USB disk seen over the network with SMB and FTP functions perfectly? If somebody has experienced something similar or has an idea, please let me know guys!
