Is that the same server as in your other post? Please describe what was the original disks layout, and how exactly did you perform restore?

Thanks!

Kindly check if older versions of recovery CD work (link). Can you also try to boot the server from some liveCD (Debian, for example) ? If older Veeam Recovery media doesn't work, but LiveCD does, then please provide output of lshw command on that server.

Thanks!

Have you ever test your recovery media linux on new generation of HP DL 380/580 G10 ?
I think it will not work because i check all of linux recovery media versions in both mode UEFI mode and legacy mode
in legacy mode show above error in previous post but in UEFI mode i will see follow pic and nothing work

the recovery media is bootable for BIOS by default, but you can patch it to boot on EFI as well:

Code: Select all

veeamconfig config patchiso --efi --input <input_path> --output <output_path> -copy <additional_path>
Please try patching the iso on a spare machine and let me know if it works.

Thanks!

You need to have xorriso installed. The package can be found in epel repo:

Code: Select all

yum install epel-release -y
yum install xorriso

Actually this means that the media started booting the kernel, but for some reason it couldn't finish. That is, recovery media starts to boot just fine on UEFI, the issue is something else.

You can try to wait a little bit more and see if it will succeed, or you can take some 3rd party liveCD, install veeam agent inside, and start recovery UI from there. In order to do that you need to edit veeam.ini:

Code: Select all

[recoveryui]
enableOnLiveSystem = 1
After that invoke

Code: Select all

veeamconfig recoveryui
Thanks!

Thanks

question :

1- As my os is limit and cannot access to internet for download that , would you please create linux recovery media for UEFI and put it in FTP for download ?

2-you said boot system with a live os . after booting system it will be start is that your means install rpm file in live os ?
3-what does your mean from edit veeam.ini file in live os where is that ???

1 - As I've explained in my previous post, the problem is not with UEFI part of the recovery media. That is, you don't need a patched recovery media, because the one that you have actually starts on EFI systems (otherwise it wouldn't even show "Booting 'VEEAM'" ), but for some reason it cannot complete its boot sequence. And no, we cannot do that.

2 - Yes, I mean that you should try installing VAL rpm inside the liveCD OS.

3 - /etc/veeam/veeam.ini file. Add this there:

Code: Select all

[recoveryui]
enableOnLiveSystem = 1
, restart veeamservice, and start recovery ui with the command that I've mentioned in my previous post.

Thanks

You can use Fedora LiveCD for that. Also you can use Debian liveCD and use .deb packages instead.

That's right, you need to obtain those dependencies first (on usb drive for example) and install them. You can omit veeamsnap depndency and install veeam without it (you'll need to use --force option to make rpm skip it)

Provided that all other dependencies are met, recovery ui will work fine without veeamsnap driver.

I am sorry, my bad - you need to use --nodeps instead:

Code: Select all

rpm -ivh veeam-3.0.1.1046-1.el7.x86_64.rpm --nodeps

That's so strange none of you recovery media not work in legacy mode on HP DL580 G10 servers i tested all of them from here https://repository.veeam.com/backup/lin ... media/x86/

even i had first release veeam-recovery-media-1.0.0.944_x86_64.iso and did not work
1- why ?
2- also in previous posts is upload a pic in UEFI mode https://pasteboard.co/IiV8sD8.jpg
unfortunately not work
3- also with live CD it need few dependencies even installed it with --nodeps option but as i said veeamconfig recoveryui could not start
why ?

You need to work with the correct architecture so testing both won’t really help.

On the live-cd, you will need to get those dependencies if the command does not work. Best you can do is get those binaries on a USB stick and install those from there to make it work.

Custom iso’s always take some time to fine tune.
