  • Live Browse FREL Root folders issue
    Posted: 07-22-2019, 3:34 AM

    When restoring guest files/folders for a linux VM, we ran into an issue with the root folders.


    Instead of restoring for example, var/log or home/ or whatever root folder, it restores it as rhel7-var/log or rhel7-home/ or rhel7-opt. Unfortunately we do not have access to the VMs in question so we cannot change the folder names afterwards. 

    We already determined it is not a fault in the restore process as it already shows the rhel7-var etc. nomenclature during the live browse. 

    When another party looked at one of the VMs in more detail, with the mount command they saw the following output:

    /dev/mapper/rhel7-var on /var type xfs (rw,relatime,seclabel,attr2,inode64,noquota)

    /dev/mapper/rhel7-tmp on /tmp type xfs (rw,relatime,seclabel,attr2,inode64,noquota)

    etc etc. 


    This would explain where the rhel7 prefix is coming from, but why does it happen and how can we circumvent it?

    The VM is stored with list of files and the logcial volume/mount point when backed up with VSA.
    When backed up via File System it will show by mount point.
