Migration Restore Issue

CentOS 6.3 / Virtualmin Pro

Due to a failing hardrive, I am migrating to a replacement server. I am getting the following error:

[root@secure]# virtualmin restore-domain --source /backup/oldServer --all-domains --all-features
Checking for missing features …
… all features in backup are supported

Starting restore…
Extracting backup archive files …
… extraction of /backup/oldServer/mxxxxxxxe.com.tar.gz failed :
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data–format violated
/bin/tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
/bin/tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Backup does not contain virtual server information for missing domain vxxxxxxxxxxxs.com.

Restore failed!

How can I run the restore and exclude those two domains (hopefully there are not more)? Or any other advice?


I opened a bug report.

Just to wrap up this thread.

I was able to resolve the restore issue by making a fresh backup of the two virtual servers identified in my original post from the failing server, since it was still limping along. I transferred them to the new server and replaced what must have been corrupted backups. The restore went without a hitch after that.
