Debian Support Regression with VBR management

Post by bbruno »

Hello,

We have a new regression on VAL support with VBR v10 with Debian 9 stretch
On VBR side, during a rescan, we have this error : Unable to install backup agent: cannot connect to XX.XXX.XXX.XX Error: Failed to collect information about Linux OS

Code: Select all

On VAL side, the log said :

A support engineer have seen the issue and a case have been open (#04139343) but as it's a blocking problem we want to know if anyone have a workaround, If we configure the host as a standalone one or connect it to a VCC, it work fine.

Hello,
I just read the last answers from the support case and the issue seems to be resolved.

I also did not notice any issues with my debian 9 in my lab. The agent installed without any issues.

Best regards,
Hannes

Dear all

What was the solution to this problem?
I have the exact same problem with an old Ubuntu 10.04 server.

Thanks and best regards.

Hello,
if you mean Ubuntu 20.04... then it is not supported yet https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agent ... tml?ver=40 (but I just did a quick test in my lab and it works fine)

For the other case: there was a duplicate line in /etc/os-release

Please remember that the forums are not a support replacement. veeam-backup-replication-f2/rules-of-po ... -t755.html

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi Hannes

Actually (and sadly) no, I meant Ubuntu 10.04. That box is nearly 10 years old and not supported from the previous IT guy.
I just took this client over and he is not ready yet to replace the server - but he wants a backup for now.

Thanks for the reply. I did already create the support case - will take it from there.

Best regards and thanks again, Steve

no need to create a support case... 14.04 is the earliest supported version (see my link above)

If file backup is "good enough", then I would try NAS backup. It was never tested for such old systems, but it might work (at least if it is a 64bit machine).

Thank you - that clearifies this.

I did test NAS backup and it works flawlessly! It even is a 32bit system with SMB1 - but it still works (I had to enable SMB1 support on the Veeam B&R server).
Will use NAS backup for now - thanks again!
