Linux client not appending .gho or .ghs to files

I do not need a solution (just sharing information)

When I use the linux client to create an image of a disk, it is not making the .ghs files.  Instead, it continually tries to overwite the same filename without the .gho.  For example if the image name I type is “JohnSmith-desktop”, it does not append the ,gho to the end automatically and it keeps writing to the same file over and over again until it reaches about 2 GB and then starts over.  

If I manually put .gho at the end, like “JohnSmith-desktop.gho”, then it names the following files, but names them “JohnSmith-desktop.001”, “JohnSmith-desktop.002”, and so on.  It does not append the .ghs to the end.  

Anybody know how to fix this?

Disk image create and restore issue

I need a solution

Hello, I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 server with GSS 3.3 installed. Client computer OS is Windows 10, Disk Management looks like attached image “disk_management.png”. In diskpart concole the disk and partition information looks like attached image “diskpart.png”
In GSS console:
Create image job command: -CLONE,MODE=CREATE,SRC=2,DST=%IMAGE_FILENAME% -SURE -SPLIT=0 -Z3
Image location: 1:2ImagesImage.gho
Restore image command: -CLONE,MODE=RESTORE,SRC=%IMAGE_FILENAME%,DST=2 -sure
Image location: 1:2ImagesImage.gho

Questions:
1. To create image, if image location set to D:Imagesimage.gho, the job seems never complete, status is keeping “Uploading disk image…” unless I delete the job manually. If image location set to 1:2xxxx.gho, the job completed successfully. Why this happens?
2. Restore image not work with above ghost command, the warning message is “The Drive number selected for deploying an image connot be same as the Drive number on which the image is stored.” Anything wrong in the restore command? Please advise.

Ghost Image of System in RST UEFI from USB Boot

I need a solution

Hello, I’ve been using Ghost to image my personal machines for about 20 years. I simply boot off the CD and create backups to another drive, and restore in the same fashion. Now I just bought a new laptop, that doesn’t have a CD drive. So I created a bootable USB, which works on my older machines, but not the new laptop. The laptop bios settings include:  storage controller RST mode (not entirely sure why this laptop requires this), boot mode UEFI (can’t go to Legacy boot mode in RST), and USB boot enabled. I’ve tried multiple different settings and the laptop just will not bring up the USB in the boot menu. I tried taking the SSD out to put it in my old machine, but then realized it’s not SATA (it’s NVMe PCIe).

So can someone please enlighten me on how best create a Ghost image of this hard drive? Many thanks in advance!

Symantec Management Agent error (AClient not installed)

I need a solution

During the Symantec Management Agent (SMA) installation (pushed out from server), i run into some messages about the AClient that dont look right to me (I could be wrong).

Questions

1. What is the ‘AClient’?

2. Why is the SMA install trying to stop it and later start it?

3. If the AClient is supposed to be stopped and started, why is it not installed?  Why isnt the SMA install installing the AClient BEFORE it attempts to stop/start the AClient?

4. What can i do to resolve? 

Thank You!

How to view and mount GHO images? Where to download Norton Ghost Explorer?

I need a solution

I used Norton Ghost for many years.  i want to clean up my old GHO files.  My recovery experience is that GHO files are often corrupted, so I want to verify them before selecting which GHO files to save.  I also want to open the GHO files to ensure that I’m not throwing away any important data that I haven’t backuped elswere before deleting them.  (would also like the ability to load an GHO image in a virtual machine in case I need to use some old program that I no longer have, but that’s not a current need right now.)

Norton Ghost Explorer 11.5 was free but the download links are not working for me.  Is it because I am in Indonesia at the moment and VPN is blocked, or are the files no longer there?  

ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/pr…

ftp://ftp.norton.com/public/english_us_canada/prod…

Alternatively, how to install old versions of Norton Ghost on Windows?  I understand that it is not compatible for imaging, but surely it could open and extract GHO files?

I have the CDs for:

  • Norton Ghost 2003 (but no key on the sleeve)
  • Norton Ghost 10 (2005) with key – but will not install on windows 10 (gave error that it is not compatible with the OS)
  • Norton Ghost 14 (2007) with key – installed ok but I don’t see how to open GHO files!  (only opens v2i files?!)
  • Nortong Ghost 15 (2009) but the key is unredable (old thermal yellow sticker, parts of the numers faded or rubbed off)

I should also have my old NG boot CDs.  Can I boot them in a Virtual Machine in Win 10?  (Sounds cumbersome.)

Other possible solutions?

Thank you in advance.

Ghost image failed to restore.

I need a solution

I am working on creating a ghost image for my machine. below are the technical details:

O.S = WIndows 10

Ghost version = 3.3 (Stand alone). This is the latest one.

Bios = american megatrends

Boot is set to = UEFI only

WinPE 10 is used along with norton ghost.

Note: I am using the default configuration of norton ghost.

Procedure i have followed to create ghost image:

Boot in WinPE Mode –> Disk –> to image –> select Src as my O.S Drive –> Select destinationa as my USB –> create.

Procedure i have followed to restore ghost image:

Boot in WinPE Mode –> Disk –> from image –> select Src as my USB Drive –> Select destinationa as my Drive 1 (My PC Hard Disk)–> restore.

Restoreion will be successfull. when i boot the machine after image restore, I get a blue screen error saying “your PC needs to be repaired”

To further test this i did both creation of ghost image and restoration of ghost on the same machine. Even then i get the same error.

Not sure what wrong i am doing. Could some one plaese help me with this.

Restore old .gho image file.

I do not need a solution (just sharing information)

I have an “old” (created in 2011, with Ghost 11.51) .gho image file + two spanned .ghs files, that I need to restore on a new hard drive.

I don’t have any access to the old Ghost software used to create this .gho file.

Any suggestions on the best way to restore this image file?

Thanks.

Dell Latitude 5300 Client No display when connecting to Win10PE

I need a solution

So I was on Ghost Solution Suite 3.2 and was having an issue with a new model of Dell Latitude 5300 client Laptop only showing a black screen after loading from the PXE server. Right before it goes to a black screen I see the windows 10 logo then I get no display the ghost session does connect and it will create or image luckily so It still functions. I am not sure what would cause the black screen though on the load of the PE.

I have also updated to GSS 3.3 to test if there was some kind of fix for this issue but it still is happening. Has anyone had this black screen issue on any laptops or computers before? 

Not sure what is causing this because it is only specific to this model. Could it be the Video driver not loading in windows PE or is it.

Also to note I tried an external display same issue.

Automation boot fails with Boot Disk creator

I need a solution

Using Ghost Solution 3.3 and just updated my preboot environment. At first, the machine complained about the NIC drivers with “Restarting DHCP clilent service” when booting from the automation folder. I updated them, reinstalled the automation folder and was able to complete my task. 

However, when I created a bootable USB with the automation folder from the same environment, I got the the “Restarting DHCP clilent service.” Again, it’s the same environment, yet I get an error when creating a USB. I’ve created the bootable USB by using the boot disk creator and trying an ISO. Thoughts? 

Because I was able to boot into it and deploy images, I know it works. I’m jsut not sure why the USB isn’t working.
