partimage permissions error ?? [solved]

Postby reader » 20 Nov 2012, 12:55

Using sysrescue 3.1.1 on both sides of a network, I am using, on the client, partimage -n -L and
on the server, partimaged -n -L

The server is started first.

With or without the option -d , I get the error message...

"Cannot create temp file in /mnt1/dest_folder_name
Write access is denied for user 'partimag' " (sic)

This looks almost as if the server side should have been started by a root user.
But we are already the root user by default in sysrescue aren't we ?
The mount refers to ( r w ) which I believe means that the destination is mounted read/write.

The really strange thing is that this problem seems to go away when I change to an ntfs target partition.
Previously it was ext3. This can surely not be correct in that the failing partition which I want to save
is fat16 and is gzipped. Doesn't sound as if it should need an ntfs destination in order to work.
The exact same hardware was used in the tests above.

Any clues would be much appreciated.

partimaged drop its user id to "partimag" (ID 91 on sysrcd).
Make the destination directory writable for this user.

Many thanks Gernot. That solved the problem !

I can confirm that the server does not display connections as a previous version did.
That is, however, not a problem for sysrescue.
