Have a look into the rear.log file to see why the backup is not working
IBM LPAR needs probably something special - like ttyS1 as

Try adding "KERNEL_CMDLINE="selinux=0 console=tty0
console=ttyS1" in the local.conf file and see what happens when you boot
from an ISO image. 

If the problem remains please create an issue.

I am using ReaR for backup and restore of my Linux VM's,
The VM's running on VMware ESX platform working great , restoration is fine
but the Linux VM's  

running on LPAR creating issues while boot . Please

I have used the below command : 


But when I see
the directory where its backed up I can see the below files: I have also a
doubt as the backed up tar file size is very small. Not sure. 

1 root root 531 Jan 29 04:03 backup.log
