I'm surprised if you could mount any type of vmdk image by that method. It should work with a "flat" or raw image with a loopback mount. Perhaps that's what ESXi uses. Normally... [by pschaff]
I made an image with this command in Fedora:
"dd if=/dev/sda of=/home/image.dd"
Are all my memory data in this image?
Can I mount it and investigate it with TSK?
I want to mount it with this command:
"mount /home/image.dd /mnt/tmp "
but it says "cannot determine filesystem type".
what should I do? Did I created image from correct file?
I created an image.dd with dd command from my /dev/sda. Now when I want to mount it with this command: "mount -o loop image.dd /mnt/ttt" ,It says : "mount: you must specify the filesystem type".
When i run "fdisk -l" to recognize the filesystem, It says:
"WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on 'image.dd'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT.
Peace be upon you all !when mounting an image (*.iso for example) by this command :mount -o loop image.iso or mount -o loop image.iso /mount_point/in dolphin file manager in the corner of Devices the name of the mounted image is "Loop Device"WHAT I NEED is that the name showed there becomes the name of the image
Is it possible to use a SquashFS filesystem as an LXC rootfs? I can mount an ext3 image as a rootfs just by setting lxc.rootfs to the filename, but if it's any other type of image, lxc-start just says that it can't mount an ext3 filesystem.
I have generated an image file (.dd) of a partition (/dev/sda4) from my HD (/dev/sda) using the software TestDisk. The refered partition has bad sectors, so the idea is to recover some remaining data. Moreover, the partition is a Windows 8-type (Testdisk recognized as "MS Data").
I want to use losetup to map a disk image file to a loopback device (dev/loop0) during boot.I would also want to mount this device as my home partition.The disk image is not located on the root partition, but on another separate partition.I can do this manually by using following commands:losetup --find --show /mnt/data/home-flat.vmdk
losetup -o 32256 /dev/loop1 /dev/loop0
mount /dev/loop1 /homeTh
