R1soft Backup Error – Failed to Backup LVM/MD Configuration

R1Soft error will resemble something like – “Failed to backup LVM/MD Configuration” with running LVM based commands from R1Soft.

Usually due to an upstream vendor or repo update of the LVM binary that conflicts with the R1soft native configuration “lvm.static” command.

Error:

Failed backup of LVM configuration
Failed to execute command ‘lvm.static pvs -o pv_fmt,pv_uuid,dev_size,pv_name,pv_mda_free,pv_mda_size,pv_all,seg_all,pvseg_all,vg_all,lv_all –nameprefixes –noheadings –units b –nosuffix –unquoted’

Workaround:

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