What kind of rescue system is it? I have a server at Hetzner, and there I have a full Debian Sarge rescue system.
For all clarity I should maybe give some insight on the hardware which I'm using.
I have 2 dell PE860 servers with Sata hard drives (1x250Gb) 2Gb ram. To be able to install debian sarge on them I had to search the internet for an alternative kernel. I believe it's version 2.6.16 (sarge-custom-0801.iso ), which I'm using at the moment. The installs are all according to your howto's (if only you knew the impact you have..).
In my further investigation of my problem I re-did the image and re-ran the addclients command. After that I burned a bootcd from systemimager to temporarily bypass your script, to be sure that it would at least work locally. (I also read that your script works for other people so that couldn't be the problem).
Now the imaging process goes further without the afore mentioned messages, but when I restart the new system I get the GrubGrubGrubGrubGrubGrubGrub message filling up my screen. So the system hangs there.
I don't know how to re-install grub using the expert-mode of the install cd which then uses busybox without the grub-install commands (not even ifconfig could I find). So I am stuck. Even if I could re-install grub locally, I think that systemimager should be able to restore grub when I do a remote imageing job. I have tried to intsall the testing version of systemimager (3.6.3) but that gave a lot of errors when I put back the image. So I'm really stuck here. I hope you have some good advice 4 me. I think that I have a problem because of the sata disks? Maybe you have also an advice on a good installer for sata systems.
