RHEL 7 & SureBackup

Veeam Logoby stewsie » Thu May 18, 2017 11:43 am

Hi

Is anyone using SureBackup to test backups containing RHEL 7 VMs? I have a problem where during the SureBackup job a new adapter is added and it is ignored by the OS. The adapter is an E1000. I had a support call open with Veeam that resolved this for RHEL 6 but I had to close that call due to problems at our end.

I would really like to run SureBackup jobs against backups containing RHEL 7 VMs.

Paul, would you mind to share the support case number?

This is the one I have open at the moment 02150128

Still struggling to make this work which means I am unable to test any backups with RHEL 7 VMs

Paul,

VMXNET3 is the preferred driver; see https://www.lewan.com/blog/choosing-the ... he-vmxnet3.

Hope this helps.

We found that for the Linux VMs that the E1000 gives us the least problems especially regarding the VM Tools. This is unrelated to the SureBackup issues I have though.

In fact with the VMXNET3 adapter it introduces a similar problem in Windows where a new adapter is used during SureBackup and an IP is not allocated. There is supposedly a hot fix from Microsoft to resolve that. https://www.veeam.com/kb1570
