Ghost v8.2 Corporate - Usage Error 623 Client and Server clone switches are out of sync.
Posted on 2005-03-07
Evaluating Ghost v8.2 Corporate and trying to dump an image of the first partition of the first drive in a system to a Ghost Multicast session with the following command line:
ghost.exe -clone,mode=pcreate,src=1:1,dst=@mcbackup -split=700 -z9
Connection to the ghostcast server/session is fine but then fails with the following error:
Usage Error 623
Client and Server clone switches are out of sync.
client = -clone,mode=PCREATE,src=1,dst=@MCBACKUP
server = -clone,mode=pcreate,src=1:1,dst=@mcbackup
So, the ghost command line is truncating part of the 'src' parameters' value from 1:1 to just 1. Imaging the whole disk with just mode=create and src=1 works fine, as does manually selecting the partition if I drop all the command line switches and go through the ghost Multicast menu with the mouse... but if I am going to be able to buy this app, I need to be able to script the backup and restore capabilities and actually have them work.
Any ideas, or has anyone heard from symantec about this as a command line parsing 'bug'?
