Recovery media restore for linux

Post by Kei »

Hi

I would like to know the detail of the Recovery media restore on Linux server.
When I accees to the web site which I can download linux recovery media, I can see the bellow some download link.

UDL:http://repository.veeam.com/backup/linu ... media/x86/

Link:
veeam-recovery-i386-5.0.0.iso 23-Dec-2021 14:32 463M
veeam-recovery-media-2.0.1.665.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:36 77M
veeam-recovery-media-3.0.0.865.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:37 108M
veeam-recovery-media-3.0.0.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:37 108M
veeam-recovery-media-3.0.1.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:37 108M
veeam-recovery-media-3.0.2.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:38 109M
veeam-recovery-media-4.0.0.iso 17-Jun-2021 10:38 110M
veeam-recovery-media-5.0.0.iso 23-Dec-2021 14:33 137M

Which recovery media should I use for restore?
My restore target servers kernel ver and veeam agent ver are bellow.

- Ubuntu:5.4.0-131-generic
- Redhat:4.18.0-372.26.1.el8_6.x86_64
- Veeam agent ver: 5.0.2.4567 (both of them)

Also if there is the kernel version and restore media version compatible table, I would like to know that.

Hi Kei

Please check this page in our user guide:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=50

For your system you can use veeam-recovery-i386-5.0.0.iso.
If you have a x64 CPU, you can also use the veeam-recovery-amd64-5.0.0.iso media.

Hi Fabian

Thank you for your reply.
I click bellow link and only downloaded "veeam-recovery-media-5.0.0.iso"
-veeam-recovery-media-5.0.0.iso 23-Dec-2021 14:33 137M

How do I get the "veeam-recovery-i386-5.0.0.iso" or "veeam-recovery-amd64-5.0.0.iso media" ?

Best regards.

Both medias are in the software repository under their folder (x86 or x64):

Hi Kei

The difference is the kernel which will be loaded for the recovery session.
If you want to make sure, that you use the right kernel (the one from your machine), you can create a custom recovery media:
https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=50

This also allows you to use a recovery media iso which contains all required drivers for your linux machine.

Hi Fabian

Thank you for reply.
I would like to make sure one point.
If I use "Veeam recovery 5.10.0-0.bpo.9-amd64" as recovery media, the kernel ver will change to 5.10.0 after restore ?

No, you are doing a volume restore. Which means the entire volume with the original kernel will be restored.
