Cant install veeam agent linux on debian 8

Post by best74 » Jul 13, 2017 10:47 am

Hmm, i cant seem to install Veeam Agent Linux Free on debian 8 (openmediavault).

When i try to run: dpkg -i ./veeam-release* && apt-get update

I get an error, not an archive in debian format.. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

The package might have been corrupted. Please check the md5 checksum and re-download the package if needed.

Thank you

Well, i got it installed now by doing the following:

echo 'deb [arch=amd64] http://repository.veeam.com/backup/linu ... ian/x86_64 noname veeam' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/veeam.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install veeam

Do however get some key error, but that cuz' i havent added the key from repo yet.

Well, so far so good, but when try to run a veeam backup job, i get; failed to create volume snapshot, and failed to load veeamsnap module error..

Any suggestions would be very welcome!

Please check whether veeamsnap module is loaded:

lsmod | grep veeamsnap

Thanks

Hello,

it looks like dkms module was not generated during installation,
could you reinstall veeam and veeamsnap packages and paste here installation log?

Allright, i think i fixed this. It seems i was missing some kernel sources/headers. I found this KB https://www.veeam.com/kb2259

I ran the following command to fix it:

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Then i ran:
sudo dkms build -m veeamsnap -v 1.0.1.364
sudo dkms install -m veeamsnap -v 1.0.1.364

But i dont think i even needed to run the 2 last command, as they stated it was already build / installed.

Oh almost forgot, -Thank you for your help!! :)
