Hi All,

I'm testing VAL on Debian and Centos machines, but when i try to configure the backup to VBR 9.5 it hangs after configure the VBR options.

On the logs, everything seems ok, i see that the authentication on Windows Server is fine, but then the Setup hangs eternally.

The first strange thing, is that port 10002 is not open on VBR 9.5, just the 10001. When i try with the default port, an exception is thrown, but if i used the port 10001, the Connection Status is ok and the authentication too.

So what's the problem after this ? Anyone had solved this issue ?

Best regards,

As you can read from the previous page, VBR 9.5 is not supported as a target for the VAL backup job yet. Thanks!

João,

VAL Beta2 should work fine with VBR 9.5, whereas VAL GA will require VBR 9.5 U1, indeed. Please open port 10002 on VBR and try to connect again. If that does not work please collect logs from VBR for the last 24 hours and the following logs from VAL - the whole /var/log/veeam directory and the output of dmesg -T.

Thanks

I'm having the same issue as syntetikvision. I'm attempting to config a backup to VBR 9.0, not 9.5.

It hangs at the VBR screen

[10.11.2016 17:14:31] <140009143150336> | Trying to connect to the endpoint [192.168.12.240:10001]

Logs end after authenticated

Any ideas?

Veeam B&R 9.0 is not supported as we have previously mentioned in this very thread ;)

[MERGED] Unable to connect to repository

Veeam Logoby priet » Wed Nov 16, 2016 12:41 pm

I'm testing Veeam Agent for Linux beta 2.

I've a VBR server located at our office and a Linux CentOS 7 server running in a datacenter.

Port 10002 is open to our VBR server. The Linux Agent is able to see and connect to one of the repositories in the VBR.

When I try to run a backup job, the following error occurs:

Code: Select all
2016-11-16 13:08:01 Job started at 2016-11-16 13:08:01
2016-11-16 13:08:02 Starting backup
2016-11-16 13:08:10 Creating volume snapshot
2016-11-16 13:10:35 [error] Failed to connect to the port [192.168.26.122:2500].
2016-11-16 13:10:35 [error] Failed to perform backup


192.168.26.122 is the address of the (Windows) repository server, a second server at our office.

Do I assume correctly that the Linux Agent is trying to directly connect to the repository? I was under the assumption that the communication went through the VBR server.

If that is the case, then I need to add the repository with a FQDN and the necessary port forwarding so it can be accessed from outside. However, that will complicate the setup in the VBR for the local jobs.

What is the best way to set this up?

Hi,

Yes, exactly, VAL connect directly to the repository. Maybe you could just create an additional rule for the Linux host's IP on the repo's side?

Thanks

Hello All,

Just finish deploying my lab and at this point I have a VBR9.5 server backing up 4 VM's to a HPE StoreOnce VSA Repository.
VM1: Windows Server 2012R2 (DC/DNS/FS)
VM2: Windows Server 2012R2 (SQL2014 Express & Oracle12g)
VM3: Windows Server 2012R2 (Exchange 2016)
VM4: Windows Server 2012 (Sharepoint 2013 Foundation with own DB )

Also deployed one Linux Ubuntu 16.04 Server and created a 2nd Repository on VBR (local disks) giving it permission to be accessed by a specific account.
On Linux the VAL was deployed and configured to backup the Entire Machine to VBR9.5 repository using the specific account.

Everything is working just fine. I've been able to backup the infrastructure and perform some restores but didn't test those deeply (maybe in a few weeks I'll post something about that since I also want to test restore to Azure).

This time I had no problems with ports or access to VBR server.

If anyone have questions I'll be happy to try to answer if i can.

Fabio.
