[BETA2] LVM/Logical Volumes with partitioning fails to back

Veeam Logoby EAB » Fri Sep 02, 2016 8:27 am

Backing up LVM-volumes with partitioning failed with Beta1 and Beta2.

The LVM volume is 10GB and fails to backup.
Several LVM volumes seems to work flawless and others fails to backup.
So Veeam works fine with LVM volumes, but after doing some research it seems it don’t work on LVM volumes with partitioning inside that Logical volume.

Veeam-console job output:
Code: Select all

2016-09-02 06:00:02 [error] Failed to perform backup



Output from the host where I’m using Veeam:
Code: Select all

└─ab-disk--6272 252:6    0   40G  0 lvm


VM (KVM) running on ab-disk-—5105 and ab-disk—5106:
Code: Select all
# lsblk
NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom 
vda    253:0    0    10G  0 disk
└─vda1 253:1    0    10G  0 part /
vdb    253:16   0     4G  0 disk [SWAP]


So vda is ab-disk-—5105 and vdb is ab-disk—5106.

On the host the output from lvs shows that the volumes are “o” which means they’re “open” and so in use.
Code: Select all
# lvs
  LV        VG   Attr       LSize 
  disk-5104 ab   -wi-a-----  10.00g                                                   
  disk-5105 ab   -wi-a-----   2.00g                                                   
  disk-5106 ab   -wi-ao----  10.00g                                                   
  disk-5107 ab   -wi-ao----   4.00g                                                   
  disk-5460 ab   -wi-a----- 100.00g                                                   
  disk-5461 ab   -wi-a-----   2.00g                                                   
  disk-6272 ab   -wi-a-----  40.00g                                                   


To make clear what works and what fails:
- When backing up disk-5107 (vdb/swap) it works.
- When backing up disk-5106 (partitioned vda) it fails.

It looks like Veeam tries to recognize the blockdevice inside disk-5106 and fails:
Code: Select all
[02.09.2016 06:00:02] <140336258529024> lpbcore| >>  |Logical volume [disk-5106] is not active.

For disk-5107 Veeam recognize swap inside the logical volume:
Code: Select all
[02.09.2016 09:31:08] <140511897392896> lpbcore|         Logical volume [disk-5107] contains swap and will be excluded from snapshot.

I need to make clear that scanning LVM-volumes and mounting them when they are recognized as supported filesystem like EXT4 is bad.
Years ago accidentally we destroyed 30 VM’s because of this: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=556739
So please please be careful when fixing the deficiency I report here, and don’t make the same mistake :)
Thinking back to that day makes me sad :(

I’m running Veeam for Linux Beta2 on a test-environment, so feel free to provide me with patches so I can help testing.

Re: [BETA2] LVM/Logical Volumes with partitioning fails to b

Veeam Logoby PTide » Fri Sep 02, 2016 12:39 pm

Hi and welcome to the community!

So Veeam works fine with LVM volumes, but after doing some research it seems it don’t work on LVM volumes with partitioning inside that Logical volume.
I've heard of that problem before, the only difference that LVM built-in snapshot functionality had been used. Let's see what we can do here.

VM (KVM) running on ab-disk-—5105 and ab-disk—5106
What's the bus that you used: scsi/ide/virtio?

vda is ab-disk-—5105 and vdb is ab-disk—5106
I'm a little bit confused with the outputs that you've provided, as I can clearly see that vda is 10G while 5105 is only 2G. I guess that in fact vda is ab-disk--5106 because it's 10G while 5105 is only 2G, and vdb is ab-disk--5107 since it's 4G. Is that correct?

Please also provide an archive of /var/log/veeam directory (use share folder or any other filesharing service)

Thanks!

Veeam Logoby EAB » Fri Sep 02, 2016 12:56 pm

Sorry for the confusion, my bad,
- ab-disk--5106 should be ab-disk--5107
- ab-disk--5105 should be ab-disk--5106

The logs and names of volumes I provided above are sanitized.
What are you looking for in the logfiles? I just did a line-count on all logs... 30.000+ lines. That takes some time to sanitize and I need to ask someone to checkup the sanitized logs.

We're using Virtio by the way.

Hi,

We usually require Agent.Source.log and veeamsvc.log files as they contain driver information which is not fully displayed in Job.Log, but let's wait and see if the development team will request any additional info.

P.S. As for log sanitizing, it seems that you do not have much trust in grep/sed/awk, do you? :)

Thanks

Ok, lets wait for your development team :)

Scripting in 50 lines is good for readability, but doing it all in a oneliner is more fun.
I have tons of trust in my oneliner-skills, but our procedures and policies do not say a thing about my trust ;)

Hi Ptide,

2 weeks ago I downloaded the GA version and gave it a try and the issue is still there.
Do you have an update on this issue from your development department?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You can contact our support team to request the fix that adjusts VAL's behaviour so that it automatically skips such LVMs instead of failing the job. That is, currently there is no support for LVMs that are passed to VMs as virtual disks.

Thanks

Currently the only workarounds are to either use LVM snapshots or install VAL inside the guest.
