BMR dissimilar disk restore
Hi I'm attempting to perform a BMR dissimilar disk restore on SUSE Linux 10, using Netbackup 7.0.1.
My original client system has 1 disk drive and I'm attempting to restore the client system with 2 disk drives so I can partition the file system between the two disk drives. Is this considered dissimilar disk restore or dissimilar system restore? (I am aware dissimilar system restore isn't supported in linux.)
Whenever I attempted to perform a prepare to discover from the netbackup administrative console, I would boot my client with the boot media CD and my client would return the discoverable configuration to the master server. I would then initialize the configuration with the discoverable configuration and perform my disk mapping. Next, I issue a prepare to restore and reboot my client with the boot media CD again. As the client runs, I would receive this error: "Disk 'sda' too small, 11317761 KB needed, 0KB available" and the client would send another discovered configuration back to the master server and prompt for another disk mapping.
I'm positive my disks have enough space to hold my file system. I even performed a fresh reformat of the disks before it went into bmr restore. I've also tried reducing my parition and restoring only a limited amount of file systems such that it only uses at most 5gb of the harddrives and has around 54gb of space left over. The same error appears except the needed byte is around 5gb.
Any insights as to what the problem may be?
