VAL stops with latest ArchLinux - [ID# 02133145]

I know, arch linux is not officially supported. I use https://github.com/CodeImp/arch_packages

veeam 1.0.0.944-1
Kernel 4.10.13-1-ARCH

My last successful backup was on April 4th, afterwards (April 14th) backups are failing.

Michael from support told me, that there is an hotfix for that, but it's not for Arch Linux :-(

[19.04.2017 23:44:44] <140115575834368> lpbcore| No master boot record found on device.
[19.04.2017 23:44:44] <140115575834368> lpbcore| ERR |No medium found
[19.04.2017 23:44:44] <140115575834368> lpbcore| >> |Failed to probe device [/dev/sr0].
[19.04.2017 23:44:44] <140115575834368> lpbcore| >> |An exception was thrown from thread [140115575834368].

It looks similar to one of a known bugs that have been fixed by a special hotfix.


Anybody else running Arch Linux, is it working at yours?
What causes the bug? I have a very simple partition setup (64GB SSD, MBR, part1 ext4 53GB, part2 swap 8,5GB). The GUI just shows an error "LvmDriver: Failed to create LVM..."

Michael also said, that the hotfix might be included in VAL Update 1, which will be released soon.

Hi,

Please try to set units=”h” in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf.

Thanks

Thx PTide, It's working again.

Can you give more details on that? :-)

I also have two questions:
1. is that the hotfix Michael was talking about?
2. Veeamsupport here (forum) is better than via supportticket? ;-)

Here is the root cause:
https://sourceware.org/git/?p=lvm2.git; ... dfb5cff467
it was changed in lvm2-2.02.169

1. No, it's not. When you say "hotfix" that usually implies "package that has been built for some specific reason to fix some specific problem". Changing a variable via config file is not a hotfix in any way. :)
2. If you either use unsupported version of OS and/or use FREE version of VAL then the answer is "yes"

Thank you
