I’m running an Amahi-Box that is unfortunately stuck on Fedora 27. I started using urbackup to see if it can take over my Backup needs and so far I am really liking it. The BTRFS integration is awesome!
I also ran two full raw image backups of my Windows machines, which seems to have worked fine, but now I would like to explore the image. Unfortunately, the “Mount Image” button on the server web GUI does not work, giving me the following error:
ERROR: Image mounting failed: Guestmount…
libvirt: error : internal error: libvirt.so is not safe to use from setuid programs
libguestfs: error: you must have libvirt >= 0.10.2 to use the ‘libvirt’ backend
(as also described here: Image mounting failed [2.2.9_centos]) I guess this is because Fedora is based off of REHL.
Now I figured I’d try the docker image, even though uroni mentioned it would not work as it is impossible to mount files/virtual machines in docker. But this thread here seems to have managed to mount VHDs at least (Docker: Mount vhd files - #2 by dsiggi), so I figured I’d give it a shot. I built a docker image and added
&& apt-get install -y libguestfs-tools qemu-utils to the Dockerfile. I then ran the docker image as the poster above described with
While I do indeed see the “Mount Image” button after this modification to the Dockerfile and the
urbackup_mount_helper test returns “MOUNT TEST OK”, trying to mount the file in the Webgui gives me following error:
Mounting image failed. Please see server log file for details.
Error opening backing file /backups/SUTEKI-2IN1/210604-1124_Image_C/Image_C_210604-1124.raw
So, is this a lost cause? Or could I at least manage to somehow browse and fetch data from the image in the terminal?
