R1soft Backup Error - Failed to backup LVM/MD Configuration


Our Senior Technicians have further investigated the issue of "Failed to backup LVM/MD Configuration" which has been happening since early September 2017.

A package update in Cloudlinux was released, which conflicts with the r1soft native configuration "lvm.static" command, and has caused Error's to appear on backups.

Backups are STILL working, this just affects the ability to restore the LVM & Volume Group configuration from the recovery point in question (Required during a BareMetal Restore).

A work-around has been located, in the meantime, and the issue has been escalated to R1soft support for an official fix.

The work-around is by replacing the r1soft lvm.static binary with the system version of LVM, which can be done per below steps.

# mv /usr/sbin/r1soft/lib/lvm.static{,.bak}

# ln -s /sbin/lvm /usr/sbin/r1soft/lib/lvm.static

This fix will be automatically run out on Servers Australia Managed customers, and reverted once an official fix is in place by r1soft.
