[Ubuntu 20.04] ZFS file system machine backup

Post by showiproute »

Hello everyone,

I migrated my storage HDD from EXT4 to ZFS as it has some nice features.
Unfortunately I recoginized that Veeam Agent for Linux does no longer backup that vovlume.

Any suggestions what to do?

Thanks!

Hello,

The only idea which comes to my mind is to leverage snapshot-less file-level backup.

Thanks!

Ahoj Petr,

thanks for your feedback - I see and had the feeling that I would need to change that.
Okay so as I understand as soon as I would use a ZFS file system Veeams Linux agent will not be able to do an "Entire machine" backup.

@showiproute,

Not sure whether that was a question, but I confirm that snapshot-less file-level backup does not back up the entire machine - it just grabs files that you tell it to.

Thanks!

Hello @PTide,

yes indirectly it answers my question.
I set up a new backup job on a snapshot-less file-level with my important files.

Are there any plans to have ZFS filesystems include in a "Entire machine" backup?

Thanks you both!
