Failed to create volume snapshot on CentOS

Post by davide.depaoli »

Hello,
I've just downloaded veeam agent, installed centOS on a vsphere vm, installed all os dependencies and finally started veeam agent.
As veeam repository have added a new local disk and mounted as a standard filesystem.
Have configure veeam as Volume level backup, excluding a filesystem acting as repository.
The job fails with:
"failed to create volume snapshot"
"child execution has failed. Exit code: 1"

I'm not a linux guru, and I don't know how to solve the problem.
Thank you
Davide

How did you format the new repository? Is this an ext4 disk?

Yes, it is ext4 formatted, using following command: "/sbin/mkfs.ext4 -L /backup /dev/sdb1"

Hi,
Child execution has failed. Exit code: [1]
Please run rpm -qa | grep veeamsnap. If the output says veeamsnap-1.0.0.499-1.noarch then please check if the versions of kernel and kernel-headers match - run uname -r and compare the version from the output with the verison in the output of rpm -qa | grep kernel-headers

Kindly reinstall both packages (veeam and veeamsnap) and try to start backup again. If the same error persists then please upload the /var/log/veeam directory to some fileshare so we can review the logs. Please also include the output of lsblk -af and dmesg -T in the archive.

Thank you

Hi,
I have reinstalled whole vm from scratch installing all dependecies (some trouble to find dkms for CentOS).
Now the agent is working.

Thank you

Now the agent is working.
Good! dkms is not available in any of the official CentOS repositories, so if you use yum packet manager for installation and want it to install dkms automatically then please use some third-party repository that contains dkms package (epel for example).

Thanks

If this may be useful to other users. I have found dkms here:

Hello,

I also have problems doing backups with the veeam endpoint backup for linux.
I also have centos and my output to those commands is:

Code: Select all

[root@SRV-WEB-02 veeam]# rpm -qa | grep veeamsnap
veeamsnap-1.0.0.499-1.noarch
[root@SRV-WEB-02 veeam]# uname -r
3.10.0-327.18.2.el7.x86_64
[root@SRV-WEB-02 veeam]# rpm -qa | grep kernel-headers
kernel-headers-3.10.0-327.22.2.el7.x86_64
so what should i do now?

thanks for your help

Hi,

Apparently kernel and kernel-headers versions do not match:
][root@SRV-WEB-02 veeam]# uname -r
3.10.0-327.18.2.el7.x86_64
[root@SRV-WEB-02 veeam]# rpm -qa | grep kernel-headers
kernel-headers-3.10.0-327.22.2.el7.x86_64
Those numbers should match each other.

Thanks.
