Source: I have a Windows 10 Pro acting as a home server. I installed vmware workstation on it and it is running a Ubuntu server 18.04 as a shared virtual machiene, partitioned using LVM with encryption (Samba and webmin). I only used the defaults when installing ubuntu, I mean with the "server" installer (and not the "live-server" installer) I selected LVM with encryption and set a password.
Destination: Synology NAS, SMB share.
First, I wanted to make a full machine backup with veeam, but I had no idea how to restore the created backup (I just can't restore the partitions with the iso, tried v3 and v2, it can't recreate all of the partitions). As I want the restore procedure to be painless, I shifted towards the file based backup. The job only backs up a single folder (/home/<..>/share). I tried it with snapshots on and off too. When testing, the share folder only had ~800MB of data, yet the job ran for ~1 hour and the resulted backup file was ~13GB. It seems like something went really wrong.
I installed veeam using:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install cifs-utils nfs-common genisoimage sudo dpkg -i ./veeam-release* sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install veeam -y
