Linux Agent availability

Post by ASB » May 15, 2019 12:32 pm

We are already extensive user of VEEAM, and now want to use Linux Agents.

But I can't find an Agent for:

openSUSE 42.1
SUSE SLES 11 SP 3

(Both x86_64)

Can anyone point me to a version that might work?

Hi ASB,

Simply download the latest VAL version.

Thanks

As far as I can see 42.1 and SP3 are not supported:

Distributions: Both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the following distributions are supported:
Debian 6.0 – 9.6
Ubuntu 10.04 – 18.10
CentOS / RHEL 6.0 – 7.6
Oracle Linux 6 (starting from UEK R1) – Oracle Linux 7 (up to UEK R4 U7)
Oracle Linux 6 – 7.6 (RHCK)
Fedora 23 – 29
openSUSE 11.3 – 13.2, 42.0 – 42.1, Tumbleweed
openSUSE Leap 42.2 – 42.3, Leap 15
SLES 11 SP4 – 15 (SP0)
SLES for SAP 11 SP4 – 15 (SP0)

Are you going to use Agent Management functionality or standalone Linux Agents?

Hi ASB,

Thank you for the comment. Now it's clear, please find the answers below.

SUSE SLES 11 SP 3:
  • Not supported at all, however, you may go ahead and give it a try, but on your own risk and our technical support won't be able to help with troubleshooting.
openSUSE 42.1:
  • Supported, as mentioned in the requirements, however, there is a limitation - automated agent deployment of Agent Management feature won't work due to the features of this OS version. You may deploy the agent manually, then add the machine to a protection group in order to manage the backups using Agent Management. There are no known issues with standalone deployments.
  • Please also note, that in the next VAL version we are planning to cut the support of openSUSE 42.1, 42.2 and 42.3 since they will be soon no longer supported by the vendor.
Hope it helps,
Fedor

Thank you for your time and understanding.

In both cases, there is no way to download repository templates for the two unsupported versions. Are you saying I just try the nearest version available (although at my own risk and unsupported)?

Hi,

OpenSUSE 42.1 is supported, please see above. Could you please clarify, what kind of templates are you talking about?

Thanks in advance

I go to https://www.veeam.com/linux-backup-free-download.html, and select "Choose operating system", and I can only download the repository for SLES 11 SP4 and newer, or openSUSE Leap 42.2 or 42.3 and newer.

For OpenSUSE 42.1 please choose "OpenSUSE" package. For SUSE SLES 11 SP3 please give "SLES 11 SP4" package a try. Please note that this one has not been specifically tested on SUSE SLES 11 SP3, but may work.
