Hi Guys, as stated befere here I'm running the lucid samba file server appliance. Each night I do standard Amazon remote back up , and a local backup onto another windows machine for safety ??
I am in the testing the restore phase now , so I started with the local back up because it would be faster. I installed a fresh baremetal install of the appliance on the same machiine in an identical way to the original.
To begin the restore I , exited the confconsole and logged into a shell as root on the machine, and initialised TKLBAM-INIt etc , all well
I also created a passphrase for the local backup as requested.
I also installed smbfs and swat as the local backup copy is on a windows XP machine.
All well , can mount / and access the appropriate directory etc.
However , when I run tklbam-restore --address<..................> --keyfile=<................>
I get all sorts of duplicity errors complaing about no backup chains etc.
If I login in to the fileserver appliance via web shell and run the identical command it all happens flawlessly and restores the machine to its previoius fully working state with full data integrity.
Is this the way its meant to be ?? I cant think that it would be.
I havent tried the same thing with the remote amazon backup yet due to time constraints.
Appreciate any comments or input.
