I'm struggling with the Veeam Recovery Media. I have downloaded the version veeam-recovery-media-188.8.131.525_x86_64.iso and tried to boot my server (Huawei with standard INTEL NIC's).
It boot from the media but after a while it fails and the screen stays black.
Then I modified the media with the efi switch and booted again, now it works but when I try to configure the network adapters the list is empty. I then modified the media and also added the
nic drivers (added the .ko and .ko.xz version), but still no success.
Is there anything else I can try?

Did you add drivers as files using --copy <additional_path>, or you just patched the recovery?
If you just import drivers into the recovery media then the drivers has to be:
1. compiled for the same kernel version as recovery media kernel
2. loaded once the recovery media is booted (using 'modprobe')
Without that drivers won't work properly.
If you patch the recovery media, then VAL will inject all drivers into the media and patch the kernel. That should be enough for the hardware to work:
Code: Select all
veeamconfig patchiso --efi --input <input_path> --output <output_path>
