LVMDriver : Failed to create LVM Instance

Veeam Logoby skbtw » Wed Aug 02, 2017 11:54 am

Hello,
After installed the agent, when I try to configure it I get this message : LVMDriver : Failed to create LVM Instance.
Can you help me to know what is wrong ?
Thanks,

Hi,

At which step do you get that message? Also do you have lvm packages installed on the system (what system do you use BTW?) ?

Thanks

I'm getting the same error on a fresh install of Redhat 7.

Only things I have done was add the EPEL and install veeam after updating the system and rebooting.

I get this same error upon starting up Veeam after a fresh install on a fresh install of RedHat 7.

Also not sure why my other reply was removed...

Hi,

Please try to set units=”h” in /etc/lvm/lvm.conf.

Thanks

I was able to add the "units="h"" into my lvm.conf and after a reboot veeam does not give the LVM Instance error anymore.

Hi,
Thanks for your answer,
I get this message once the agent installed when I press C to configure. I'm using use RHEL 7.
Which are the lvm packages required ?

Simon,

Thank you for bringing that here and sorry about the post, it seems that someone deleted it by mistake.

@skbtw,

Please try editing /etc/lvm/lvm.conf as Simon has described.

Thanks
