Plesk restore not working

    I've been searching every option I found on google, trying everything but my restore is not workin and always giving me the following error...

    Unable to map ip address target ip is missing in map.

    the backup has been taken on the same server, I want to restore a single site out of it but it doesn't work...

    This is what I did...

    taking a backup:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psadump --nostop --nostop-domain --domains-names-skip=/home/skip.txt --do-not-dump-logs -f - | gzip | split -b -b 1000m - /home/backup.

    That's working...

    Now my restore...

    first I did :

    cat backup.* | gzip -d | /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -m /home/ip_file -s /home/sh_file -f -

    And I'm getting:

    IP's list has been written into the file /home/ip_file
    You should indicate IP addresses for mapping by editing that file.


    Check system users shells in dump ... done
    Shell's list has been written into the file /home/sh_file
    You should indicate shells locations for mapping by editing that file.

    so far so good...


    cat backup.* | gzip -d | /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore -m /home/ip_file -s /home/sh_file --single-domain-mode --domain-name mydomain.com --client-login myname --domain-ip -f -

    Now I get:

    The IP's mapping procedure has been started ...

    Unable to map ip address target ip is missing in map.

    Whatever I put in /home/ip_file which should be ok, it doesn't work...

    This is wat was generated: -> eth0: ### shared

    Didn't work, I changed it to ->

    didn't work....

    HELP! Please can somebody help me....

    Thanks, Jan

    I didn't realize it was possible for a backup / restore system to be so rediculously hard to use for the end user until I had to restore a domain for Plesk. I think the programmers sat down and thought:

    "hmm ... how can we make our backup / restore system a gigantic pain in the but for our users"

    ... and then implemented it that way.

    Anwyay, I ended up having to re-create the Client and Domain in Plesk, then run this command:

    /usr/local/psa/bin/psarestore --force -s /root/ps1 -m /root/ps2 -f /root/mydomain.com.dump --clients-logins=/tmp/arrrgggghhh

    Where the file /tmp/arrrgggghhh contains the login name for the client in question.

    The files /root/ps1 contains the shells map, and the file /root/ps2 containts the ip map.

    If it doesn't work for you the first time, try running it twice in a row, because it might have to generate the shells map and ip map, and it will do that if the files don't exsit.

    Also, I had to gunzip my .dump file (although I don't recall asking for compression when I made the psadump).

    Hope this helps.
