Ubuntu Security :: Clonezilla: Can't Save Image To Network Via Ssh
Dec 26, 2010
I'm working with Clonezilla to back up my test server, I want to store the image to a partition in our network, for example: my computer. But it still doesn't work. These are my steps:
I reboot my server with Clonezilla CD.
I choose device-image
I choose ssh_server
I choose my network device with dhcp mode
I provide the IP of my computer and port 22, then my username
I choose the path to my hard drive, like /home/username/backup
But after I type my password to connect, Clonezilla says "remote host has disconnected. Clonezilla image home directory /home/partimag is not a mountint point! Failed to mount other device as /home/partimag! Are you sure you want to continue?"
I try to connect to my computer from another machine, it works, but I don't know why Clonezilla can't.
we have a Win NT4 system used for an important application used at two places. At one place it has gone bad. I want to create an image from good system and restore it at the second location. Is it possible to do this using "clonwzilla live cd"? Does it harm the good system? Can I save the created image to an USB drive?
I have long been using clonezilla as my backup/restore software and have never had a problem with it before, ever. Today I backed up my entire disk (windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10) and upgraded to 11.04 to try it out. I didn't like it, so I decided to restore the backup. Now I can't boot my computer. It gets to a black screen and nothing happens. No error message, nothing. I can still boot from a live USB (which is what I am using now), and I can also boot from a Windows Live CD. I tried using the MBR repair on Windows and reinstalling Grub through the Ubuntu Live USB. Neither of them have worked. Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?
In 2010 I want to build a new linux box. I currently have a dual-boot system... IDE1 = WinXP 200GB Master IDE1 = Opensuse 11.0 Slave 80GB
I have cloned both drives with CloneZilla (CZ) and restored with it aswell. My 80GB is a Western Digital Caviar Model (WD800BB-00JKC0). The drive I'm thinking of buying is a WD Caviar SE (WD800AAJB) [URL]. Will my restore images work with this drive? Its a 80GB but the model numbers differ. Does it make a difference?
I'm trying to restore an image from a 40gb partition(6gb used) to a 100gb partition. I set everything up in gparted and and restored the partition image with clonezilla. In gparted, the partition shows the full 100gb partition with 6gb used, however when I boot windows and open the properties on the C: partition, it shows that it's only 40gb. Is there some setting to restore the partition image and use the full 100gb?
I'm looking for some help on this issue. I have an image (Windows XP) made with CloneZilla of a 160Gb disk (used space = 11Gb) and I 'need' to restore that image to a smaller disk (120Gb). In order to try everything out I created a virtual machine in VMWare. I've tried about every option available in CloneZilla without succes. The latest thing I tried was using dd to just copy over the partition to a created partition on the smaller disk but when booting I got:
Code:Booting...Error loading operating system.Then I thought installing the image to a disk with the same size, resize the partition with GParted and make a new CloneZilla image, but for some odd reason (typical to Windows) when booting I get a BSOD, impossible to read. The BSOD happens when booting from the disk with the same size, before resizing the partition. This also is a virtual machine.Can anyone point out what I'm missing? Or, if anyone has succesfully done this, how did you go about it?
I used Clonezilla an older version not the latest to backup an entire NTFS Windows XP drive to DVD last year. I have a series of three (3) of these DVD's but now cannot restore the backup image back to the same PC. The problem is that when booting with Clonezilla I don't have an option to restore from a CD or DVD drive since the computer comes with two working CD/DVD drives that are detected by the BIOS when the POST is displayed. I used one of these drives to boot with Clonezilla and the other one containing the backup image Disk 1 of Disk 3. Clonezilla only detects the two hard drives and a USB drive which is removable. Is there a bug in the restore process because it allowed me to backup the entire image of the hard drive onto a DVD last year but this time around there are no CD or DVD drive options available to choose other then the CD drive Clonezilla was used to boot up.
I have an Ubuntu server and i've installed drbl-clonezilla to clone and restore pc, I have a 40 gigabyte image to be deployed on other pc's with larger hard drive ex. 160 GB or 240giga, my problem is that when I deploy the image on a larger disk I end up with a disk with a partition of 40 GB and the rest unallocated, how can i restore the the disk and use full disk space, the goal is to automate the process. In clonezilla-drbl there is the possibility to start a "prerun" and "postrun" fonction that could help complete the deployment process.
when I open a Firefox session and I right click an image and select "Save Image As" nothing happens meaning no file window opens to save the image. To allow firefox to save an image I have to exit out of it and reopen it. Since I have ran a couple difference distributions over the past week and I have not had this issue before then I am pretty sure it is an OpenSuse only issue. Also another Opensuse issue only in firefox seems to be the inline spell check is underlining words at random that are spelled correctly and incorrectly.
I was given a forensic Image which I now know is a DD image of the drive (Vista) and am trying to mount the image or extract the image to another drive. I'm not sure of the extention type or if the image is a partition or the entire drive. I think it is the entire drive.
Is it possible to mount a DD image to a device. If I can't do that I just want to extract the files to run some programs against the drive. Can I view the files under Ubuntu or do I have to remove the drive and stick it into a Vista computer.
I purchased a second drive today and was hoping the command line would be something simple.
Or am I on the wrong track, should I be doing this all in a windows environment. The reason I picked ubuntu was because of the reporting tools.
How do I save it as a jpg somewhere on my puter using a script? I can wget, but it gets saved as a .evif, which is totally useless. I can right-click on the image in a browser and use the context menu to save it as a jpg, but I want this process automated. How can I DL this image and save it as a jpg? GIMP's CL options don't include the capacity to save/convert this image, though it's possible from teh GUI. ImageMagick won't read this dynamic URL. What do I do?
Am quite new to Ubuntu (10.04) and have recently reinstalled XP. I want to make an image of my windows partition to save time and effort when wanting to restore this. I read the Ubuntu documentation on Drive Imaging [URL]..community/DriveImaging and am wondering if I've done things ok?
I've booted using the Live CD. Windows is on sda1 and is a 50GB partition. I have a hidden ntfs partition on the same hard drive at sda9 of 10GB. The first time I tried this I got an error regarding my output file saying "Not a directory". I'm assuming that was because I hadn't mounted sda9. It also reported an error saying permission denied on sda1. I then mounted sda9
Code: sudo mount /dev/sda9 /mnt
I then changed to root as I thought not being in that was why I was getting the permissions error.
Code: sudo -s I've then done the following; Code: dd if=/dev/sda1 bs=1024 | gzip > /mnt/sda1.bin.gz
The terminal window is just showing a flashing cursor in the bottom left corner under the above command line input. Is the fact that my mount partition being smaller than my windows partition going to cause a problem or will gzip solve that? My Windows install occupies about 7.5GB of the 50GB partion.
I'm not sure if dd is just taking a long time to complete the task???
I have ubuntu 10.04.1 and a H.P.psc 1311 all-in-one printer scanner.Printer works ok but when trying to scan,with xsane,it goes through the scanning process and an image of the document comes up on the screen.
When I try to save this image to desktop or file/folder whatever I get the message; "Child Process Error. Failed to execute OCR command:GOCR:no such file or directory."
how efficient and effective are these snort, argus, ossec etc etc for an organization having 3500 PC Network, connected through 700+ Cisco Devices (Layer 2 and Layer 3), and scattered on 130 different sites (geographically)? what should be the combination of products and what should be the architecture for an efficient forensics activity?
I have a dual-boot windows and Suse linux 11.1 setup. I can save and restore a linux image. Trying to save an image of Windows results in Partimage freezing at the "NTFS Information" window before the "save partition to image file." I have two SystemRescue CDs of versions 1.2.2 and 1.2.3 I have two computers one with Windows 2000 and one with Windows XP I have defragmented the partitions several times over. Users are told that use with "NTFS is experimantal". Several up-beat webpage tutorials also mention this but go on to say how marvellous it works for them. Naturally, such sites do not mention problems. This is the province of the forums. I have found nothing that relates to my problem though. Hence my post appealing for any guidance on offer.
To avoid having to input a password for the keyring each time I connect to the net via wireless, I enabled the 'Available to all users' option in Network Manager. Now, my question is this. Are the 'users' it refers to just those created on this machine? Would a drive-by be able to use my network without entering the password?
As it stands I have a small home network operating behind my modem/router. Some of the ports on this are forwarded to my PS3 for gaming but I was looking at forward some for my file server.
At the moment I've forwarded port xxx22 to port 22 on my server for SSH for instance. ANd similarly 21 for FTP (although it doesnt seem to want to connect for any more than a few seconds using that). What I was thinking of doing was placing a small website for a handful of ppl to use on the server too and port forward again - xxx80 to 80. It works just fine but I'm a little concerned on the security front.
As I've moved the port to something different from the outside world I'm presuming I will have already cut the potential for malicious folks to wander in but is there anything else I should be doing? At the moment there's no firewall operating on the server, usually as its hidden behind the modem/router. But if I open this thign up more permanently what should I be doing? I've read a few articles on it but I'm always left with the overwhelming thought of "Thats if theres no firewall in my router" as they just seem to do the same.
The default Firewall ufw is not enabled by default at the time of installation and it has to be enabled by the user.Isn't this a security risk or is the user whether ufw is enabled or not secured from external threats?I am not much knowledgeable about network security But I am trying to understand the Ubuntu mentality behind this default setting.
I have a line in the fstab file which automatically mounts a network drive every time I start up Ubuntu. I browse to a text file on the network drive and open it using gEdit and make changes to it. Then, when I hit the save button, a bright red warning appears:
Could not save the file [path here] gedit cannot handle file: locations in write mode. check that you typed the location correctly and try again. This also happens if I do save as. Then, after this error appears, the file actually disappears (gets deleted) from the network drive and in order to save it, I have to select save as again and type in the original filename. The line in my fstab file is:
I am working to create a new base image for our RHEL5 setups, and I wanted to make sure we are creating a functional, but secure, image. Can anyone point me to some writeup's that might provide some illumination on this potentially daunting task? Basically, I'm concerned about what packages are okay, which should be avoided, and what other caveats that I might not think of when putting this together.
I'm trying to replace a 2k3 server with openSUSE. So far I was able to get working DHCP, DNS, SQUID and SAMBA with LDAP backend.Samba works ok login users and creating home and profile folders but somehow only the Domain Admin (administrator) account will automatically save the profile. The administrator account belongs to the ntadmins group while the rest of the users belong to ntusers group.
When I change a common user from ntusers group to ntadmins the profile will save without problem. If I change it back to it's original group the profile will be read but not updated on log off.Folder permissions seems to be ok. The network share (\pdcprofiles.msprofile aka Z is being connected with no problem and all users can read and write from and to it.
i'm wondering if it's possible to restore the original image file that you have hidden data in with steghide. The basic Idea is you have a photo using gpg sign it and then embed the signature. then remove the signature at a later time and check it with the signature. I hope another "inverse" algorithm doesn't need to be written to undo the first (if a "inverse algorithm is possible). This assume you already have the pass phrase or that there is no pass phrase. I already know how to retrieve the original file just want to remove the hidden data from the Image and restore it's attributes.
I'm playing around with the RHEL 6 install so as to create a minimal install image to be used as a generic node for a cloud. I posted this in the security section as reducing the number of services etc seems like a security activity, i.e. reducing the running processes to minimize the attack surface.
Anyways, looking through linux from scratch etc, and the NSA hardening list I'm a bit overwhelmed. Anyone have hints on any good documentation saying what is really needed for a basic system with network/ip/arp/eb rules? The RHEL 6 minimal basic puts in a c/c++ compiler along with other things. that seems unnecessary to me for a basic minimal install.
I have Ubuntu 9.10 dual booting with Windows7.My ext3 /home is mounted as F: in windows.I share a firefox profile between them so that when i am in Windows my firefox uses the same profile as it does when in Ubuntu.It all worked great until recently. I am unable to save files by right clicking and save as. In the config i am unable to set a directory to save to. It neer asks me where to save to. Just nothing happens. some off my book marks are all messed up as well, my rss feeds have the same post on some random website every time i log on and i have to manually refresh to get the correct feeds back. I am unable to delete the random bookmark.
