    I've been following the instructions on upgrading my (owned!) HR24-200. I'm booted into Ubuntu and have installed all neccessary tools. I have 4 bays for HD's, so I'm using sda for the new 2TB drive, and sdb for the old 500GB drive with my old material on it.

    I've gotten to this place in the instructions:

    Type mkdir /mnt/fap
    Type mkdir /mnt/hr24
    Type mount -t xfs -o rtdev=/dev/sda3 /dev/sda2 /mnt/fap
    Type mount -t xfs -o rtdev=/dev/sdb3 /dev/sdb2 /mnt/hr20
    Type xfsdump -J - /mnt/hr20 | xfsrestore -J - /mnt/fap

    At this point, I'm getting this output:

    xfsdump: WARNING: write to stdio failed: 32 (Broken pipe)
    xfsdump: ending media file
    xfsdump: media file size 18874368 bytes
    xfsdump: dump size (non-dir files) : 13698056 bytes
    xfsdump: NOTE: dump interrupted: 16 seconds elapsed
    xfsdump: Dump Status: INTERRUPT

    And it's now just sitting there. Should I stop it? What did I do wrong?

    That seems more like one of, if not both, of the drives were not removed at the proper time from the unit. You can't remove them after an RBR. You have to do a menu reboot and pull the power from the unit at the moment the front panel lights go out or the drive is locked.

    I did. I made sure of it each time.

    But I'll try it again for each drive and let you know.

    Here's an updated version of my output. It's now saying I need to use the -R option. But I don't know where to use it:

    root@jeffrey-MacPro:~# mount -t xfs -o rtdev=/dev/sda3 /dev/sda2 /mnt/fap

    You do need to go through the graceful shutdown procedure for each drive again. I also highly recommend using an older version of gparted as I pointed out above.

    Wait, are you doing this on a Mac Pro or using the gparted disk? You have to use a gparted disk.

    I'm on a Mac using Ubuntu. I can't use gparted. It won't boot my Mac Pro5,1. I've been using this successfully for the last couple of years, but now it's failing.

    Is this the exact same distro you were running a few years ago and the same Mac Pro? I'm sure there is way to find a pc and use the gparted boot disk. Everyone has at least one pc.

    No. That distro was erased when the drive it was on needed repair. But yes, it's the same Mac Pro.

    I'm out in the middle of nowhere. I'm afraid I don't have any access to a PC.

    I reformatted the new drive to free space, allowed the unit to reformat the drive on startup. Brought it fully up and functioning, then gracefully shut down the unit. I then replaced the original drive, again booted the unit and allowed it to come fully up, then gracefully shut down the unit.

    I also trashed the /mnt/fap and /mnt/hr20 directories and started from scratch.

    The INTERRUPT error is still happening.

    At what point are you pulling the power to remove the drives? Right after pressing - or do you wait for the front panel lights to go out?

    I'm choosing Reset from Settings. Entering a "-". Waiting for the unit to fully power down and the lights go off. Disconnecting the power cord and removing the drive.

    I'm having the exact same problem as rlinsurf, and I'm gracefully shutting down each drive on e DVR. I've tried Gparted 0.3.3-1 and 0.14.1-6.

    Was this ever resolved, and if so, how?
