DISKCRITICAL while running backup on cPanel server

Post by siaalien »

Hi everyone,

I installed VAL version 5.0.2.4567 on my CentOS 7.9 VPS server. The server uses cPanel/WHM. Each time the backup runs, I get the following notification from cPanel:
"The filesystem “/tmp/veeam/{4ad28f9c-9641-4086-bc6b-1b1bcaa069be}” mounted at “/tmp/veeam/{4ad28f9c-9641-4086-bc6b-1b1bcaa069be}” reached “critical” status because you currently use 100% of its available blocks."

The backup is succesful, but the message each time. The / partition on the server has 95 Gb total space and about 13 Gb free space.

I have other similar servers and I don't get this message.

Is this normal? Is there something I can/should do?

Thank you very much!

Best regards,
Lucian

Hello,
no, it's not normal

The error message says, that /tmp/veeam/... is full - not the / partition.

I just ran a backup and cannot see anything mounted in /tmp/veeam/uuid. Maybe it has to do with the virtualization technology your provider is using. Which hosting provider / product do you use?

Instead of guessing on a forum... what did Veeam support say about it?

Best regards,
Hannes

Hello,

I submitted a case to Veeam, I will hope for a response (Case #05846892).

As a hosting provider, I am using xServers, in Romania. Regarding the virtualization technology, I could not say... But, I have two other servers, running the same configuration, OS, kernel, [and I presume the same virtualization technology] and I don't have any issues while Veeam is running.

A while back, I was running R1Soft, and, for just a fiew times, VAL performed the backup correctly but left behind those mounted volumes - /tmp/veeam/... After completly uninstalled R1Soft, the were not left unmounted anymore. Maybe this could be relevant too.

Thank you!

All the best,
Lucian

okay, then support really should check it. Because if it's working on other machines, that's strange.

I hope the support team will check this out. So far, there is no answer, but I guess it is not a priority, given the fact I am not a paying customer.

Thank you! I will get back with their answer.

All the best,
Lucian

Unfortunately, my ticket was closed with the following message:
"Unfortunately, due to low support staff availability we were unable to process your request. This support case has been archived automatically."

Is there something else I can do?

Thank you!

All best,
Lucian

yes, that can happen to "free edition" users without support contract.

the alternative is digging through the log files yourself (/var/log/...)
