Sorry - i should have said what i'm using: rear-1.13.0-1.el6.rf.noarch
Where is the current git release relative to the packaged version? My
interest is primarily USB whole-system archive and to a lesser extent,
NETFS recovery over NFS
While i'm here, another question if i may: I'm trying to use ReaR for
P2V migration to ESXi, hopefully without PXE/NFS overhead. Can ReaR
produce a restore ISO suitable for ESXi import?
