interesting, but if you could save the log file of 'rear -vD
savelayout' then we have a complete view of the cycle. I have the
impression that during the savelayout something goes wrong. Anyhow,
perhaps it is easier for you and me to create a new issue tracker at
github. Is much easier for me to track and reference bugs later on (if
any of course).

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:  

Partition number '' of partition is not a valid number. 
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

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

Number Start End Size File system Name
 1 1049kB 106MB 105MB ext4 /boot boot 
 2 106MB 211MB 105MB 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 
25.8GB 36.4GB 10.7GB ext4 /store/tmp 
 7 36.4GB 57.9GB 21.5GB ext4 / 
57.9GB 231GB 174GB xfs /store 
 9 231GB 275GB 43.4GB xfs

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

Could someone easily spot the root error cause? 

Thanks guys,
