LINUX File Level Backup

Post by Avo » Mar 25, 2019 4:08 pm

Hi Everyone!
I'm going to install Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 to backup an Hyper-V Host with Windows and Linux based instances. My question is... Is possible to perform a further file-level backup installing and configuring Veeam Agent Free on a Debian 8 Linux Instance? Is possible to perform that backup while people is using data stored in that linux machine (database). Sorry for the questions but Linux is out of my confort-zone :D . Thanks in advance.

You can perform file level backups, volume level backups and entire computer backups with Linux. Do keep in mind you can't manage the free edition from VBR so a license would be needed for this.

Ok i understood the need of a license for manage the agent through VBR but is possible to use a repository created in VBR as a backup target for the linux agent file-level backup job? It's also possible perform backup while people is still working? Thank you a lot.

Hi,

Yes, it is possible. You need to either choose VBR as a destination in local UI, or in VBR agent job settings

Thanks!
