I posted my first question here : veeam-agent-for-linux-f41/beginner-question-opensuse-agent-t50416.html
Now that I received the answer and tried the installation procedure here : https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=20
I have more questions !
We have veeambackup and wmware. Like I said before, we choose OpenSuse leap 42.3 as our linux distrib. Virtual opensuse servers are backuped with veeam's tools for wmware. The problem we have is with physical linux OpenSuse servers.
During the installation, I encounterd an error with the following command from the procedure : zypper in veeamsnap-kmp-default
That module doesn't seems to exist. Is it critical to the agent or do I just ignore it ? Here's what I get when I search for veeamsnap :
S | Nom | Résumé | Type
i | veeamsnap | Veeam Agent for Linux (kernel module) | paquet
| veeamsnap-ueficert | veeamsnap kernel module certificate | paquet
That's for the installation part.
I then tried to run veeam anyway by executing : sudo veeam. I tried to connect to my "Veeam Backup & Replication" (we have 50 temporary licences) and created an "Entire machine (recommended)" backup. Here goes my second question :
The wizard alerts me that BTRFS is not supported. That's a big problem for us since we were thought to install all our server with this file format. Will it be supported soon ? Changing all our server from BTFRS to ext4 is not really an option for us...
I continued anyway to create a backup of the only partition not BTRFS for test purpose, the /boot partition (ext4). The job was created correctly and I lauched it. Here goes my last question for this post :
On our windows veeam server, there was an error saying : Unable to create snapshot. Not enough free space on disks for snapshot data. Demand 1073741824 bytes free. Failed to perform backup. Failed to create volume snapshot.
We have many TB of storage free for backups. Is this error concernong free space on the linux server or the veeam server ? We don't want to take a snapshot, this is not a virtual server, it's a physical server. We want to take a full backup (anyway, what we can since BTRFS is not supported).
Thanks for your help,
