Linux Agent certificate authentication to VBR fails

Post by TimoKohlbacher »

Hi,

I have a problem with two of our Linux Hardware Servers.
From one day to another, Backups failed, with:

Error: Failed to execute agent management command startBackup. Reconnectable protocol device was closed. Unable to authenticate on backup server xxxxxxx:10006; xxxxx:10006; xxxxx:10006. Failed to establish connection to xxxx:10006; xxxxx:10006; xxxxx:10006 Failed to connect to Veeam Backup & Replication server by certificate.

Looking in the job logs on the Linux Agent shows:

Code: Select all

I tried everything i can think of... reinstalling the client, rebooting, verifying the trusted host list etc.The self signed certificate of the VBR Server has not been changed, and other Linux Clients are still working.

Where is the VBR Certificate stored in the agent? So I can verify it is there?
Anyone got any other ideas?
Googling after the error messages yields ZERO results.. :-(

okay.. I think I found the problem..
the agent updated itself from 4.0.1 to 5.0.0 . and the problem came with the new agent. Maybe out VBR is not up to date enough to communicate with the new agent? After deinstalling 5.0.0 and reinstalling 4.0.1 everything works fine again.

V5 agents require VBR11 or later.
