Need Help With SystemImager

    Hey guys, I'm new to SystemImager and I'm having a little bit of trouble... Here's my setup: I have a headnode set up running Linux Fedora 11 64bit and it has a dhcpd server assigning IP addresses to 4 cluster nodes on my network. Two of these cluster nodes have Linux Fedora 11 64bit installed, various other software, and then SystemImager 4.0.2. One of my cluster nodes was custom partitioned prior to Linux being installed. The other was just partitioned automatically with the Linux installation. I have successfully made an image of each node and I'm trying to send them to my other two nodes (which have blank hard drives). Both nodes boot from the network properly, connect to my image server (which is also my headnode), and find the image just fine. It's the autoinstallation of the images is where the trouble is.

    When systemimager tries to install the image with the custom partitions,
    everything is fine until this point:

    *The partitions are created*
    mount sysfs /a/sys -t sysfs -o defaults || shellout
    Quietly installing image...
    df: /a/tmp: No such file or directory
    df: /a/boot: No such file or directory
    df: /a/var: No such file or directory
    df: /a/share: No such file or directory

    These last four lines are just reprinted to the screen over and over until the whole process finally fails, saying:

    mount: can't find a/var in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab

    When systemimager tries to install the image with the automatic Linux partitioning, the image seems to install alright.

    rsync -aHS --exclude=lost+found/ --exclude=/proc/* --numberic-ids : quadnode/ /a/

    but then I receive something similar to:

    swapper: page allocation failure. order:0, mode:0x20

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Are you trying to install the image to a virgin system, or is the hard drive already formatted?

    I guess this is nothing to worry about. Can you boot the system afterwards?
