A VaultDR Online backup job fails with "Failed to launch STORIX stmakeboot command".
In the log, the job reports
Error: cp: writing `/storix/temp/mnt/lib/modules/2.6.18-8.1.15.el5/kernel/drivers/parport/parport_pc.ko': No space left on device
Cannot copy /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.1.15.el5/kernel/drivers/parport/parport_pc.ko to temp ram disk." or similar.
VaultDR Online for Linux employs a third-party utility called Storix that creates a boot image out of the current Linux installation. This image is created in a temporary space of a preassigned size. By default, this size is 32 MB, but certain Linux distributions (such as Red Hat 5) or others, depending on their configuration, need too much data included. Consequently, the boot image creation process fails with the above error.
This can be rectified by modifying a parameter in the file /opt/storix/bin/stmakeboot - change the DISKSIZE value on line 1725 as follows:
before: set DISKSIZE 32768
after: set DISKSIZE 65536
This will create a bigger image. Ensure that you have enough disk space and memory to allocate this.
