    I just installed the latest build of True Image for Linux on a remote server. My only access is via a PuTTY interface (so no GUI). I created a NFS share on another server located on the same DMZ. I was able to successfully mount it as /mnt/backup. However when i try and run true image from the command line:

    trueimagecmd --harddisk:1 --filename:08_19_2005_A.tib --\create --progress:eek:n

    I get the following error:

    Saving partition structure
    [##################################################] 100%
    Creating partition image
    [######################################............] 76%
    Write error

    So i try and save a test file while in the mounted directory /mnt/backup and i get a write permission denied error. I read through some NFS troubleshooting tips and notice a comment about root squashing. Apparently, I can turn off the root squashing, however, every single site says this is a huge security risk.

    So.... I try running acronis under a different user rather than root. However when running the same exact image create command:

    trueimagecmd --harddisk:1 --filename:08_19_2005_A.tib --\create --progress:eek:n

    I now get the following error:

    Serial number is incorrect.

    How should I proceed? Any tips you can provide on getting this working would be greatly appreciated!

    Unfortunately, the server I installed True Image Server for Linux on, is in Southern California, and I am administering it remotely from Northern California. I dont currently have physical access to run the boot disk on it. :doubt:

    Is there anything else I can do, to get you the info you need to help me?
