I have tested this building a duplicate drive as well as had to use it
for real. It is a pretty good tool built around btrfs send and receive
commands. Hope this helps.
I stumbled across this tool a while ago. Looks very promising. Thanks
for pointing it out.
Though it still leaves the question how to properly bootstrap this setup
and what steps have to be taken for restoring a standard openSUSE Leap
system from such backups.
I have made my poor scripts available on my gitlab server
(signed by my own CA so either
accept certificate issue in the browser or download my CA cert from http://
The restore script is the interested one and is based around the subvolume
structure openSUSE used when I created the system so will need changing now as
there are fewer subvolumes on the last VM I created. You can restore to a
spare drive (ie from a rescue session with a drive mounted or onto a usb
drive) and then you should be able to boot
Hope it helps
