Baremetal backup of SunOS 5.10 physical server

Post by arossolimo »

Hi,

I have two old SunOS 5.10 baremetal servers that I need to backup.
Got Agent installed and now having problem with setting up a backup job, so looking for some help from the community.

I'm following directions from this article:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=20

-bash-3.2$ sudo veeamconfig job create --name blby-srv-dm01-os-backup\ backup --reponame ['blby-vprox02 - Baremetal']\ --includedirs '/' --maxpoints 31 --indexall --daily --at 20:00 --weekdays-full Mon
Unknown argument: [/].

but I keep getting "Unknown argument:"

I'm missing something...
Any advise on creating a backup job that will backup whole server for me?

Hi arossolimo,

Try removing the quotes from --includedirs '/' argument. Hope that helps!

removed quotes - same result:

-bash-3.2$ sudo veeamconfig job create --name blby-srv-dm01-os-backup\ backup --reponame ['blby-vprox02 - Baremetal']\ --includedirs / --maxpoints 31 --indexall --daily --at 20:00 --weekdays-full Mon
Unknown argument: [/].

Thanks, looks like there is another unnecessary symbol that needs to be removed from the command. Try to set repository this way:

Code: Select all

--reponame '[blby-vprox02] Baremetal'
or

Code: Select all

--reponame [blby-vprox02]\ Baremetal
where blby-vprox02 is you Veeam B&R server and Baremetal is the name of the repository.

Hi,

As the userguide clearly says, you should specify the job type (volumelevel or filelevel):
To create a file-level backup job, use the following command:

veeamconfig job create filelevel --name <job_name> --reponame <repository_name> <objects> <advanced_options> <schedule_options> <active_full_backup_options> <indexing_options> --nosnap
You can also run 'man veeamconfig' command from CLI on your Linux machine and see manpages that give a plenty of examples.

Since you want to run entire machine backup, you should specify "volumeLevel" job type and set --backupallsystem flag (example)

P.S. The type of quotes does not matter. Moreover, you can omit them entirely.

Thanks

Hi Dima P.

here is my vbrserver and repository configuration:

-bash-3.2$ sudo veeamconfig vbrserver list
Name ID Endpoints Username Domain
vbr01 {a62b843a-1828-4f0d-b62f-6d75c742191d} ***********:10006 **************
-bash-3.2$ sudo veeamconfig repository list
Name ID Location Type Accessible Backup server
[vbr01] blby-vprox02 - Baremetal {a4e4d744-3d8c-4a04-9ea1-a5a734e8b022} vbr01 backup server true vbr01

so is it suppose to be like this:
sudo veeamconfig job create --name blby-srv-dm01-os-backup\ backup --reponame '[vbr01] blby-vprox02 - Baremetal'\ --includedirs / --maxpoints 31 --indexall --daily --at 20:00 --weekdays-full Mon

where blby-vprox02 is you Veeam B&R server and Baremetal is the name of the repository.
To be able to make this post I require to provide a support case ID
I did create a support Case #04782536, but I got a respond: "It is beyond the scope of Veeam Support’s responsibility to provide installation, configuration, and upgrades of our products. "

Hi PTide,

I don't see volumelevel or filelevel and there is no --backupallsystem flag anywhere in manual 'man veeamconfig'.
I'm working with Solaris agent and it seems to be a bit different then other linux agents...

Sorry, my bad - I totally missed that it was Solaris...shame on me.
so is it suppose to be like this:
veeamconfig job create --name blby-srv-dm01-os-backup\ backup --reponame '[vbr01] blby-vprox02 - Baremetal'\ --includedirs / --maxpoints 31 --indexall --daily --at 20:00 --weekdays-full Mon
More like this:

Code: Select all

veeamconfig job create --name blby-srv-dm01-os-backup\ backup --reponame '[vbr01] blby-vprox02 - Baremetal' --includedirs / --maxpoints 31 --indexall --daily --at 20:00 --weekdays-full Mon
You don't need that backslash before --includedirs.

Thanks!

P.S. Regarding the support tech. response - this will be investigated internally. Support is actually supposed to point out misconfigurations and such.

Thanks!
