Unable to create Hardened Repo on Linux - Agent failed to process method {FileSystem.DirectoryCreate}.

Post by Backup.Operator »

Hi Team,

I am unable to set up the Backup repository using Linux.

This is the error:

Code: Select all

---------------------------
Veeam Backup and Replication
---------------------------
Permission denied
Failed to create directory '/VeeamBackup/backups/'
Agent failed to process method {FileSystem.DirectoryCreate}.
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------
How can I fix the above issue?

Using the RepoUser account, I can SSH to the Linux server and I can see the /etc/fstab content that /Veeambackup is mounted on /dev/sdb
df -Th result also shows the /dev/sdb xfs 63.9T 25G 3.4T 0.9% /VeeamBackup


Thank you,

What permissions have you set on /VeeamBackup? And have you tried to manually create the backups directory via SSH with your repository user?

Like this one:

Code: Select all

svc-veeam@bkpsvr01:/Repository-A$ ls -laph
total 4.0K
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    6 Feb 22 12:23 ./
drwxr-xr-x 20 root root 4.0K Feb 20 15:08 ../

svc-veeam@bkpsvr01:/Repository-A$ ls -ld /Repository-A/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 6 Feb 22 12:23 /Repository-A/
svc-veeam@bkpsvr01:/Repository-A$
Is that correct ?

Hi

It looks like your backup folder Repository-A doesn't have the right owner.
Your Repo User must be owner of the folder Repository-A and it's subfolder/files.

If that doesn't solve your issue, please provide a support case ID for this issue, as requested when you click New Topic. Without case number, the topic will eventually be deleted by moderators.

Best regards,

Fabian is right, you need to change the owner of your folder to svc-veeam. And in addition also change the permissions to '700'.

Try this command below:

Code: Select all

sudo chown svc-veeam /Repository-A/
I hope this is useful to you.
