I've installed veeam agent linux on ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS (kernel 3.16.0-30 x86_64) and veeam ui doesn't start
I keep getting:
Error: Connection refused
Failed to connect: /tmp/veeam/socket/veeam.sock
Failed to connect to local socket

Firewall is set to allow all

Which are the permissions of your tmp folder?

Also which Veeam Agent for Linux did you install? Is this the latest release (1.0.1.364)?

Did you get this working? Solution/workaround?

I have this problem on a fully updated RHEL6.9 with a newly installed Veeam Agent.

Hi,

Have you tried to restart veeamservice manually?

Thanks

Found the problem.

I tried to start "veeamservice" by running /etc/init.d/veeamservice. This script does not exist!

After some investigation I realized that I have installed the rhel7 repository and agent on a rhel6 server. My bad!
Reinstalled the correct version of Veeam Agent and now everything is working.

Thanks for the input that pointed me in the right direction.
