I recently bought and installed Cloudmin. Installation was a little bumpy on Ubuntu 10.04, but I managed to get around the bumps of the installation itself. I had 1 problem where it tried to install libmd5-perl, but that was a virtual package. Following a guide here http://www.kelvinwong.ca/2010/05/22/installing-webmin-on-ubuntu-server-10-04-lts-lucid/ I was able to get around the problem.
After that, I started doing replication. Couple issues there I reported in an issue ticket here: https://www.virtualmin.com/node/15074
Temporarily got around that problem by patching in the virtualmin_ui functons from vui-lib, which is mentioned in the issue ticket, but I’m down to one problem remaining for me to actually make use of it as-is for now.
I’m trying to do only partial backups since I’m using shared storage such as glusterfs or NFS, and the issue is:
Backing up virtual servers on source system …
… backup failed : Starting backup… A new format backup can only be done when the home directory is included Backup failed!
I’ve read in a previous message that using old format backup would resolve this, but there’s no such option that I’m seeing for that in Cloudmin for Physical Servers version 4.6, and basically I followed the documentation as per https://www.virtualmin.com/documentation/cloudmin/vm/vsync for selecting specific advanced options in the backup.
I wanted to do Global backup, because I wanted the entire server to be replicated to another for load balancing.
Any input on this matter?
