• When we attept to capture an image the upload proccess seems to be looping with partclone running over and over again

    We have left it overnight and its repeated the same steps, have checked to see that the image is uploading and can see that data is being transfered in iftop, not sure what else i should look at 🙂

    I can see the image files are owned by root in /images/dev/<randomfoldername>

    Any advice would be welcome!

    We reset the DB creds and now its working perfectly 🙂

    @NateUH Sounds like you don’t have access to the machine/screen of the device you upload the image from, right?

    You can take a look at the partition table file d1.minimum.partitions to see how many partition files (d1pX.img*) should really be created.

    There is no log file created to tell us why it cannot finish capturing/uploading the image. You probably need to have a person sit next to it and watch the screen / take a picture.

    The d1.minimum.partitions file tells us you use resizable image type. Is this used intentionally or just because it’s the default?
