I tried a restore today on a machine I have with a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD4H main board, which is a based on the Intel Z87 chipset which I got in 2013. Unfortunately the urbackup version 1.1 CD doesn’t manage to drive the LAN interface on that motherboard. I tried a clonezilla CD I had around which has a newer kernel and that worked fine with the LAN interface but doesn’t support urbackup, so it seems more recent Linux kernels work with that hardware.
Next step for me seems to be to try the 1.1.1 restore CD with more firmware and failing that build a Urbackup restore CD with a newer kernel, unless anyone has a better idea. I am curious how well urbackup will handle the GPT on the drive on that machine.
When do you plan to update the restore CD? I’m facing the same problem and the urbackup restore cd does not recognize my ethernet device (ifconfig shows only the lo).
I’ve tested the Debian Live 7.7.0 standard, and it worked just fine - so all ethernet interfaces are recognized.
