#921 closed System Defect (fixed)

Use USB key does not work in Restore from Life-Preserver backup

Reported by: dlavigne Owned by: kris
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Installer Version: 10-CURRENT
Keywords: system restore Cc: trac-bugs@…


In this scenario, backups have successfully been replicated to another system and the user has selected Restore from the Jan 2 10.0 installer image. The backup system can be pinged from the installer.

If the user selects to "Use USB key", the "Connection failed!" screen is displayed. Several things need to be fixed:

  1. The installer doesn't indicate in the Restore Wizard screen that the stick needs to be inserted, nor does it prompt for the user to insert the stick if it is not.
  1. Even if the stick is inserted, it is not automagically mounted by the installer.
  1. Even if the stick is manually mounted in the installer (and its contents verified as being there), the same error occurs.
