backup job causes VM to crash

Post by frank.furter »

one backup job, running at 0:00,should backup /etc and /var/spool/cron on a linux VM (vmware)
immediatelly after starting the job the VM crashes (kernel panic)
i can reproduce the error when forcing the backup to start.
veeamagent is the newest version
OS on the VM is debian 10.7 (kernel 4.19.0)

veeam backup & replication error message is:
04.01.2021 00:34:15 :: Task failed. Error: Ein Verbindungsversuch ist fehlgeschlagen, da die Gegenstelle nach einer bestimmten Zeitspanne nicht richtig reagiert hat, oder die hergestellte Verbindung war fehlerhaft, da der verbundene Host nicht reagiert hat

thanks in advance

Hello David,

Thank you for the case ID. While support team is checking the logs, mind me asking why you use agent to process the Virtual Machine? Cheers!

Thanks for the details. If you need just several files you can add Linux host to managed servers, register it as a file share and then go with file level backup job. Cheers!
