Linux agent ports

Post by mpiet » Apr 25, 2017 2:28 pm

We're trying to evaluate if the linux agent will work with our current licensed windows veeam backup server, however I cannot successfully get any linux backup agent to complete a job. It appears to create both a job ID and backup ID, the job populates on the server, but never successfully runs anything. It complains about not being able to find a backup ID and not able to write to socket.

Are there more ports that should be opened apart from 10002?

Hi,

Please provide the exact error message that you get, and briefly describe your setup (repo, host, backup server locations, networks etc). Please also check this list of required ports.

Thank you

Ports 2500-5000 have an IPTABLES rule to allow forward traffic between devices, as well as a rule for 10002 for the backup agent.

Setup:
Linux Agent: Centos 6 2.6.32-642.6.2.el6.x86_64

Code: Select all

yum list installed |grep veeam

Initially i had some issues getting the install to work correctly due to some of the intricacies for the package dependencies, however I was able to configure a job in my test lab pointing to a simple CIFS share. It appears to be authenticating properly as shown in the logs and from the Backup client on the Windows server, however that is as far as I have been able to get.
