How to do a full backup for Centos 7 using the volume option

Post by darkstone » Apr 30, 2017 11:59 pm


We are looking to move Centos from current disk 32 GB to a new 120 GB SSD.
By doing a full backup using Veeam Agent Linux and restoring to the new disk.
I cannot choose (Entire Machine) as we have two Raid arrays which are not required to backup.
Can I use Volume level backup to do this?
When I choose the Volume option I see
[ ] Centos

and there is also


sdc- disk where centos is installed.
Are both of these required?

You will need to take the install volume of the system so if this is sdc then yes you will need it.

You could post the output of lsblk -a and maybe that way we can determine the correct volumes if you are unsure.
