Kindly try to insert the module one more time, run the following command immediately afterwards, and let me know what's in the output:

Code: Select all

dmesg | tail -20

By any chance, are you running this command as sudo or root?

This message means that the module must be signed before using it. Please check this article.

Kindly try to start veeamservice manually via

Code: Select all

veeamservice --daemonize
You can also take an easier route and download the RTM version of VBR that includes the newest agent (3.0.2). Please find all details and the download link in this KB.

snoopy5707,

As you can see from the KB that I've mentioned, it is VERY soon :)

Thanks!

Also tried to download the full package (both ISO and update) from kb2970 but I can not
find the linux install file inside it. It seems that everything is for windows (except a plugin
directory for oracle and SAP Hana)

Any help?

FYI,

VAL v3.0.2 has been made generally available today and it fully supports v5 Linux kernel (up to 5.1.11 depending on the distro).

Thanks!

Hi!
Sorry, what is the supported kernel version that is available in Fedora 30 repos?

Hello George,
and welcome to the forums.

Just to make sure: you are not asking about Veeam Agent for Linux? You just want to run the repository role?

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... =95u4#repo
Linux (bash shell, SSH and Perl are required). Check the full list of required Perl modules in this Veeam KB article.
64-bit edition of Linux must be able to run 32-bit programs. Pure 64-bit Linux editions are not supported (Perl installation must support 32-bit variables).
The kernel is not relevant for that use case.

Best regards,
Hannes

Yes, I mean VAL 3.0.2. How it's not relevant? I need the kernel-devel package for the supported kernel version in order to build veeamsnap.ko, as far as I understand? The veeamsnap fails to build or install with the recent Fedora 30 kernel versions.

That was my bad with an obsolete versions in dkms, it builds and works fine with the recent kernel-5.3.8.
