Hi there,

I'm trying to create a rescue system for an IBM QRadar Security SIEM
appliance. The configuration for this type of systems is complicated,
however, after a look at the documentation and related issues on github I
don't see why this should not work.

The error I'm getting is the following:

ERROR: Partition number '' of partition  is not a valid number.
ERROR: Partition  is numbered ''. More than 128 partitions is not supported.

I've tried to debug a little bit the code, but cannot find where the local
variable $partitions is assigned.

The partition table is the following:

[root at eseastmasv01306 ~]# parted -l
Model: VMware Virtual disk (scsi)
Disk /dev/sda: 275GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt

Number  Start   End     Size    File system     Name              Flags
 1      1049kB  106MB   105MB   ext4            /boot             boot
 2      106MB   211MB   105MB                   grub              bios_grub
 3      211MB   6653MB  6442MB  ext3            /recovery
 4      6653MB  15.0GB  8390MB  linux-swap(v1)  swap
 5      15.0GB  25.8GB  10.7GB  ext4            /var/log
 6      25.8GB  36.4GB  10.7GB  ext4            /store/tmp
 7      36.4GB  57.9GB  21.5GB  ext4            /
 8      57.9GB  231GB   174GB   xfs             /store
 9      231GB   275GB   43.4GB  xfs             /store/transient


And the debug log of the recovery and the disklayout is attached.

Could someone easily spot the root error cause?

Thanks guys,


Ignasi,
