    I want to create images of my Linux System With SystemImager.

    Setting up the SystemImager-client:

    I added this line to my /etc/apt/sources.list:

    deb stable main

    Followed by the commands:
    apt-get update

    apt-get install systemimager-client
    si_prepareclient --server <ipaddress imageserver>

    then i received the following errors:

    Using "sfdisk" to gather information about disk:

    Using "sfdisk" to gather information about disk:

    rsync: link_stat "/usr/share/systemimager/boot/x86_64/standard/initrd_template/." failed: No such file or directory (2)
    rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(789)
    Couldn't rsync -a /usr/share/systemimager/boot/x86_64/standard/initrd_template/ /tmp/.systemimager.4/. at /usr/lib/systemimager/perl/SystemImager/ line 58.

    By the way: i have noticed that others have also this unsolved problem.
    Have a look here:

    Is there any solution?

    I don't know one. I guess I have to play around with this when I find the time. Seems as if things have changed in SystemImager...

    Problems with setting up a backup system

    Yes, there is something wrong i guess. I hope there will be a solution for it soon. I am surprised that i have so much problems with setting up backup-systems for my server. For example i have still an open thread about rdiff-backup. It works now but rdiff still does not make a backup of /var. :(

    It's working if you install the systemimager-server on the golden client ...:confused:

    For incremental, snapshot-like backups I us rsync (because I couldn't get rdiff to work together on a debian and a suse machine). I make backups every 6h.
