    Clonezilla - image not found error when restoring the image

    Clonezilla Server OS: SLES 10 SP2 i586
    client OS: SLES 10 SP2 i586
    boot method: PXE

    I installed the Clonezilla by manually installing the rpms, then ran following commands
    # /opt/drbl/sbin/drblsrv-offline -l 0 -s `uname -r`
    # /opt/drbl/sbin/drblpush -i
    # /opt/drbl/dcs
    (I have attached their outputs)

    after installing/configuring the Clonzilla server addition, I successfully booted the client and create/save the image of the client on the /home/partimage/2009-03-23-21-img (on clonezilla server).

    On clonezilla server
    # ls -l /home/partimage/2009-03-23-21-img
    total 701724
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 14040 Mar 23 22:01 Info-dmi.txt
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 35 Mar 23 22:00 sda-chs.sf
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 512 Mar 23 22:00 sda-mbr
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 260 Mar 23 22:00 sda-pt.parted
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 259 Mar 23 22:00 sda-pt.sf
    -rw------- 1 root root 717820854 Mar 23 22:01 sda2

    Two issues/problem I found during image creation stage is that
    1, the client has two file system (a) /dev/sda1 "swap" (b) /dev/sda2 "/"
    but only /dev/sda2 file system was backed up(imaged), even though I have selected the /dev/sda and not the individual file system

    2, when the image of /dev/sda2 save on clonezilla server under /home/partimage/2009-03-23-21-img directory, properly, I got the following message on the clients(pxe booted) console

    Saving DMI info...
    The distribution or version is unknown!
    Program terminated
    Sending all processes the TERM signal
    Sending all processes the KILL signal
    INIT: going single user
    INIT: Sending all processes the TERM signal
    Give root password for login

    But when I boot the client to restore the image, clonezilla says "that no image found"
    following are the errors I got when I try to restore the image

    when I select the > "restore Disk restore_an_image_to_local_disk"

    Clonezilla image directory: /home/partimage
    No disk image is found in /home/partimage .. Make sure you already saved image

    when I select the > "restoreparts Restore_an_image_to_local_partition"
    No disk or partition image directory is found in /home/partimage! program terminated!!!

    I am totally confused why the restore program doesn't able to see/check the image directory under /home/partimage... even though the directory "2009-03-23-21-img" is present under /home/partimage ... having this client's image saved properly

    I got the same msg " image found" whereas I've seen it on the disc! I've tried several things, eg move the image directory to top level but none work. Did you ever find a solution? Bit worrying when this product is doing dangerous things with discs to find it doesn't work at the simple stuff!!
