Debian 9 Support?

Veeam Logoby MRRamsay » Mon Sep 18, 2017 11:22 pm

Hello;

I'm new to the Linux side of things being a Windows guy since V3.1, but I'm looking into options for a client to back up a single Linux VM running Debian 9.1.0 (kernel 4.9.0). The sepc's for Veeam Agent for Linux say Debian 6 to 8 but not 9, however do say Linux kernel 2.6.32 or later is required with no upper limit specified.

So, is it compatible?

Thanks.

Hi,

Any kernel > 2.6.32 is supported as long as it is supplied by your distribution. The latest kernel for Debian 8 is 3.16. Debian 9 will be supported in VAL 2.0 which is coming soon. You may try to install it on Debian 9, it should work, however in this case support will be provided via forum and on the best effort basis only.

Thank you

Thank you. I'll try the existing Agent and see how it goes.

I had Veeam Linux repository working perfect on Debian 8 - Then I installed a new server on Debian 9
And can confirm that this is not working.
VeeamAgent is an ELF file been droppet to /tmp and executed. And I can se dmesg errors like:
Code: Select all
[ 2006.311480] VeeamAgent84703[5274] vsyscall attempted with vsyscall=none ip:ffffffffff600000 cs:33 sp:7fffb5b960d8 ax:ffffffffff600000 si:0 di:7fffb5b960f0
[ 2006.311486] VeeamAgent84703[5274]: segfault at ffffffffff600000 ip ffffffffff600000 sp 00007fffb5b960d8 error 15

root@server:/# uname -a
Linux server 4.14.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.14.13-1~bpo9+1 (2018-01-14) x86_64 GNU/Linux

root@server:/tmp# perl -v

This is perl 5, version 24, subversion 1 (v5.24.1) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi

Anyone got this working? Someone says only 32bit Perl is supported?

Hi Owe, please contact support for additional help. If this is a normal kernel it should work as we support Debian 9 and default kernels.

I have the same issue. We are using OpenMediaVault 4, built on Debian 9 and the same error message occurs in syslog:

Code: Select all
