LVMDriver : Failed to create LVM Instance

Post by skbtw » 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,
Sokha

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...

I found your reply in another topic.

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

[MERGED] LVMDriver : Failed to create LVM Instance

Post by bpayne » Nov 13, 2017 4:05 pm

I ran into this error "LVMDriver : Failed to create LVM Instance" after a new CentOS setup. Support pointed me to this KB https://www.veeam.com/kb2334.

Note in my experience, the solution was the other way around. I needed to change the units value from r to h, not h to r (as stated in the KB). I found another Veeam forum post with the same problem and it was successful changing the value from r to h.

Perhaps the KB article can be fixed?

Hi,

There is no mistake, as the article describes that in RHEL 7.4 the unit has changed from 'h' to 'r'. So, it has to be changed back, from 'r' to 'h'. However, I agree that the wording in the KB might be confusing, it will be fixed.

Thank you for bringing this up!
