What is the best and most efficient way to install images on machines.
I know there are Acronis and ghost, but also Microsoft has it's own program , but it takes more time to install.

Which one do you recommend? I want to be able to press a certain key a boot with PXE from the network or a bookable USB and install the image from a shared network location.

Hi. I have a Linux server that I use as a backup gateway for Acronis to redirect the backups to NAS drive.
The gateway has a config file for Acronis where I have to enter the UNC path of the share drive that Acronis will save the backup.
The line now looks like that but for some reason it does not work.
<FesfsParams>//192.168.1.40/backup</FesfsParams>.
The \\192.168.1.40\backup is the UNC path to the folder where I wan the backups to be saved and I can rich that path from windows with no Problem. How do I make Linux to see it?
I already enter on the etc\ftab file the following /192.168.1.40   backup but still not woring

I have a computer setup currently on RAID1 using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software.

Is it possible to downgrade it to No RAID without losing the setup or data?

My aim is to convert it to a Virtual Machine, but i find i am getting a BSOD when trying to launch the VM.  I am thinking it is because it is setup in RAID1.

I have a SBS2011 with a dynamic disk where data is being saved. It was mirrored, but the mirror is broken now, and don't think it will be reestablish again.

I want to test my backup, which is being done on an external hard disk drive. The backup is done with the trusty Windows Backup, using Magikmon that will supply me with reports that the backup was successful or errors. It is close to 700GB of data, and not incremental. As a test, I would like to restore this in a different server in a testing environment.

Once the drive is plugged in, Windows Backup/Restore does see the backup for the server, catalogue around 5 minutes, and then "Unable to browse the New Volume (D:). The mounted backup is inaccessible. Please retry the operation"

So how will you recover this? I select files and folders to recover. Should I rather recover the whole volume? If that is the case, will I be able to read info  the dynamic disk? I see there are 3rd party software that you can buy, that might do the trick. But surely if you lose the drive/server, you would like to plug in your drive and hit the recovery button and you sorted out. Without jumping through 10 hoops.

Long story short I need to uninstall this old version of Acronis including the snapapi26 kernel module to install a slightly newer version.  According to the instructions here: https://kb.acronis.com/content/15649 I do not have an acronis_mms or acronis_agent... but only the acronis_schedule processes.  
Closing acronis_schedule does not allow me to remove snapapi..

[root@QADServer init.d]# sudo rmmod snapapi26
ERROR: Module snapapi26 is in use
[root@QADServer init.d]#

If I proceed down the list the do the dkms remove step.. would a reboot negate the need for the rmmod step?  I do not see any acronis processes in top either.

Thanks

We have a customer who has an office in the UK and an office in the US

US office has a dedicated Verizon connection at 300mbs up/down.
UK office has a dedicated fibre connection at 100mbs up/down.

They have a SAN in the UK office that they want to use for the US office to and they will be transferring large files to and from it.
There is a site to site VPN in place across the two offices.
Because they see the fast connections at both ends, there is an expectation that they should get very fast speeds in the US when transferring files to and from the SAN that is because in the UK, but at present this is not the case.

I’m aware of MPLS, but I believe this is expensive and difficult to put in when the providers are already in place and they have no existing connection agreement. I only have a limited understanding.

Is there anything else that can be done to speed up the link between the two sites. Any software applications or something or some maybe some priority route intermediary that can speed things up.
For example, I’m hoping there is a service when some global company has a very fast route between the UK and US, which we can connect directly from the UK and US sites and achieve the best speed (maybe this is what MPLS actually is anyway).

Thanks in advance.

Good day. I am running Windows 7 Pro SP1 and have a separate partition running Linux Mint 17.1 When my computer boots the Windows Boot manager appears with choices for both Windows and Linux. If I choose Windows I go directly into Windows, but when I select Linux it takes me to the Grub 2.02 boot loader where I have to select Linux again. I would like to dispense with the Windows Boot manager and use only the Grub boot loader. I used to have this ability but when I upgraded Acronis True Image 2016 I started this boot-boot process to get to Linux. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

So I am asked by my manager to perform data recovery on a RAID 1 disk that his boss brought in, in our IT department.  I have access to a 5 bay RAID enclosure that can handle RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, and 10 including JBOD.  The brand is "Mobius 5-Bay FireWire 800, eSATA, USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure"

I am not too comfortable yet but if I can get some hints are guidance on what to do with the enclosure and RAID 1 disks, that will be helpful.  I don't think we (or at least I don't) have access to a Windows server around.

What I am looking for is what is correct software to use to access the data in question on this RAID 1 disks?
With Mobius enclosure, I am curious if I even need to do anything or just insert his RAID disks in the bay and go from there?

I am little lost and confused but I can catch up soon if I get some assistance.

Thanks

Hi Team,

We use Acronis Backup & Recovery 10.
Our backups are set up backup locally and then copy to an external drive.
The backup gets split into 4gig files. Our total backup size is around 800Gb.

Issue being that lately the copy process fails to copy over all the files.
1 or 2 files don't get copied. When I try to manually copy the missing files it starts to copy then about halfway through we get an error.
"Cannot read from the source file or disk"
Trying to copy to local disk also gives same error.
Local copy of backup opens fine.

If anyone has any info or advise that would much appreciated.

Cheers

a few months ago two volumes in my Synology DiskStation 412+ NAS crashed and until now I am still unable to recover the data but I am motivated and won't give up.

I am able to see the hard drives (sda and sdc) under "disks" in Ubuntu but I am unable to mount the raid volume.

It also detects the RAID array but it is not running.

If I want to start it, then it says "No array found in config file or automatically" When I try the command "sudo mdadm -A /dev/sda /dev/sdc" then it says it exists but it is not an md array.

At this point I don't know what to do. Any help will be appreciated. You can find all screenshots here

Since I am new to this forum I am not allowed to upload pictures or add more than 2 links so I created a photo album on Dropbox with all screenshots.

Thanks for your help in advance! I hope I can recover my data soon!
