I'm trying to restore a disk image using Clonezilla. This image is actually uncompressed in /media/image directory and it has the following files:
disk sda1.ext3-ptcl-img.lzo.aa sda-mbr
Info-dmi.txt sda6.ext3-ptcl-img.lzo.aa sda-pt.parted
Info-lshw.txt sda7.ext3-ptcl-img.lzo.aa sda-pt.sf
Info-lspci.txt sda7.ext3-ptcl-img.lzo.ab swappt-sda5.info
The following are also parts of my scenario:
The mentioned source image is in computer A (Debian), NSF server enabled, sharing /media/image directory
Computer B has a 250Gb SATA hard drive which is the one i want to write the image to (it's actually not formatted and it has several partitions and filesystems)
I'm using Live USB Clonezilla 2.1.1 stable version.
NFS server was tested from within USB booted Clonezilla (i was able to mount Computer's A shared directory /media/image into Computer's B, using command line)
The procedure i'm following is:
At this stage, i can't find the option "restoredisk". There are just "savedisk" and "saveparts" options which i belive won't help me in achieving what i want.
I'm new at Clonezilla and maybe i'm missing something.
Any help would be kindly appreciated.
I too have this issue ... I am using clonezilla-live-2.1.1-25-amd64.iso
... and by the time you get past the DHCP stage you only get 3 options :
there is no intermediate step to select between savedisk and restoredisk
Same thing happens with the clonezilla-live-20130429-raring-amd64.iso
I'm doing this on an HP XW6400 XEON Workstation.
I found out that the image directory should be a sub-directory of the NFS shared directory:
NFS Shared dir on Computer 1: /media
Image dir: /media/image
After modifying /etc/exports , restarting NFS server and rebooting Clonezilla (on step 9 i inputted: /media) i finnaly got the restoredisk option enabled.
When you run "drblpush -i", it warns you not to use /media, /tmp... directories (they are tmpfs) as image repository. So...
I know this is old but I just ran into this.
I had to have the image not in the root share. For example I was sharing \servername\share and then the folder 2015-04-15.... was under there. That didn't work for some reason so if I shared \servername\share and then have a folder underneath that, it worked fine.
Old : \servername\share\2015-04-15...
New : \servername\share\images\2015-04-15...
I think Clonezilla boogers out when it tries to load an image from the share itself. Maybe I'm wrong but that's the only way it worked to restore the images in my case.
