partimage acting strange when invoked from script
Hi all. This is my first post here, so I apologize in advance if I fail to live up to community norms :)
I have a bash script which is intended for easy backup and restoration of internet terminals in a net cafe. hda1 is the windows installation, hda2 is a large fat32 parition (so it can be easily used by both windows and debian) and hda3 is a small ext3 partition where a minimal debaian install lives. It uses partimage to do this. Right now, the command in the script I invoke partimage with is making the backup BUT it is automatically splitting into a new volume when it reaches the 2 GB mark:
So; any ideas why it's doing this?
The only thing I thought of is that it's related to the fact that partimage is invoked from a bash script, though I have no idea as to why that should matter. It would be v. useful to figure this mystery out. Meanwhile, I will modify my script so that it looks for volume 000 to start it off.
Sorry if this section is the wrong one for this topic - please let me know the right one. Thanks in advance for any help.
On my boxen, partimage puts the .000 after the image name even if it's only one part. So I just tell it to look for the image name with .000 after it.
partimage restore -b -f3 $i /mnt/images/$part.000
Because it puts the .000 after all image names, I never bothered to try stop the split option. Not really sure what that command would be if it exists but I'll look see if I can find it.
