Or you have an issue with upstart (init.conf?) or the console is not
properly initialized due to a missing device or executable. You can try
enable debugging by adding the 'debug' keyword at the cmdline while booting
from the rescue image.

Hi, 

Thanks I will add as per
your suggestion and update on the status. 

Below is the current local.conf
file looks like: 

[root at test ~]# cat /etc/rear/local.conf 

# Create
Relax-and-Recover rescue media as ISO image 

OUTPUT=ISO 

GRUB_RESCUE=yes


USE_LAYOUT=yes 

KERNEL_CMDLINE="console=hvc0" 

BACKUP=NETFS


NETFS_URL=nfs://192.168.0.1 /backupfs/clients 

MODULES_LOAD=(vmxnet)


BACKUP_OPTIONS="nfsvers=3,nolock"

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

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. 

rgds,

Hi, 

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 help. 

I have used the below
command : 

#REAR MKBACKUP 

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. 

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 531 Jan 29 04:03
backup.log 

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 15163 Jan 29 04:03 backup.tar.gz


-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 202 Jan 29 04:03 README 

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 61739008 Jan 29 04:03
