    Hi.
    I have try to upgrade my DRBL server with the following steps :
    - backup important files : /etc/drbl/x and /etc/dhcp/x
    - stop DHCP, unfs and NFS-server services
    - run drblsrv -u … done !
    - apt-get update
    - apt-get install drbl
    - drblsrv -i with selected kernel : 3,2,0-4-686-pae
    - drblpush -i
    - restore backuped files
    - restart servies : dhcp, unfs
    - try to backup Optiplex 7010 : fail … same error
    - try to backup Optiplex 360 : it's works !

    Packtages after update :
    - drbl : 2,6,15-drbl1
    - clonezilla : 3,8,12-drbl1
    - partclone : 0,2,66,drbl1

    Maybe it's a CPU problem ? Because my server is an old and single CPU and the Optiplex is a quad-core processor …

    Hi.
    Yes i have sucessfully cloned a Optiplex7010 with Clonezilla-Live USB with "clonezilla-live-20131125-saucy-amd64.iso".

    I have run the "drbl4imp -p 1 -r 1 -z 3 -u 1" command but, it's always fail at the download ISO ... always at 91 percent ...
    Can i skip this step by copying the iso into the good location ? (the problem is the ocslive_tmp.xxxXXx folder ... it's never the same ..).

    Hi.
    I have find the solution but i think i did a mistake when i try to do it : an local ISO.
    - i have downloaded separatly clonezilla-live-20131125-saucy-amd64.iso into /tmp.
    - i have edited the /tftpboot/nodes/192.168.0.2/etc/drbl/drbl-ocs.conf to assigned the local ISO :
    If you want to use a local copy, you can make it like:
    iso_url_for_pxe_ocs_live_default="file://tmp/clonezilla-live-20131125-saucy-amd64.iso"

    • ls -l /tmp/
      total 116908
      -rw-r--r-- 1 jo jo 119632318 déc. 16 15:59 clonezilla-live-20131125-saucy-amd64.iso

    • drbl4imp -p 1 -r 1 -z 3 -u 1

    What's wrong ?

    "- i have edited the /tftpboot/nodes/192.168.0.2/etc/drbl/drbl-ocs.conf to assigned the local ISO" -> What you should edit is "/etc/drbl/drbl-ocs.conf", not "/tftpboot/nodes/192.168.0.2/etc/drbl/drbl-ocs.conf".

    Hi.
    It's finally works. It's was a ISO corrupt issue ...
    Now, my DRBL woks with the Clonezilla Live mode with Saucy 64.
    It works with Optiplex7010 !

    Thank a lot.
