Unable to install

Veeam Logoby lmioperations » Tue Aug 09, 2016 8:22 pm

I am running a vCenter appliance that has the following stats:
Code: Select all
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11
PATCHLEVEL = 3

When I attempted to install veeamsnap (using "rpm -ivh veeamsnap-1.0.0.499-1.noarch.rpm"), I received an error stating that I was missing the following dependencies: dkms, gcc, make and kernel-devel

I tried installing the other two rpm files that were included with this beta package from Veeam ("veeam-1.0.0.499-1.el6.x86_64.rpm" and "veeam-1.0.0.499-1.suse.x86_64.rpm"), but was also missing dependencies with these as well.

What am I missing? The instructions here seemed way easier than this has been so far: https://www.veeam.com/blog/veeam-backup-for-linux-beta-is-available.html

As it states you'll need to install all the dependecies. As it currently are single file downloads some of these are manually to be installed.

To make sure this works take a look at the requirements list.

If this is a production vCenter however it might be best to not attempt this with beta software and try this in a lab! Keep in mind that by default the license via vCenter doesn't have the SuSe license so there are 0 repo's added. If you however have an official suse license the following should work.

Try the following please:
Code: Select all
zypper in dkms
zypper in gcc
zypper in --type pattern devel_basis


If you don't have a license the above will fail or warn you it might break stuff and you'll have to search for all packages in rpm format, download and install these by hand. My advise is not to continue here but try it on a test machine!

However keep the following in mind from the known issues post:
Code: Select all
• SUSE Linux 11.1 - 12.1 (seems to work, but there will be NO official support in the first release)
• openSUSE 11.3 - 13.2 (seems to work, but there will be NO official support in the first release)

After doing some tests with a new appliance I advise against this. It requires some packages which will downgrade and upgrade certain packages. There are packages not installed by default (not related to VAL) on the appliance and this ends up in breaking the appliance.

Thanks for all the info! Yep, this is production, and I don't have a license for SUSE.

I look forward to this product "testing itself out of beta" and checking out an official release when it's "ready"! :)

The good thing is that we now have something to create on how to install it correctly on the appliance without breaking it as a todo :-). Thanks!
