v9.5 update 1 - NFS issue

Veeam Logoby ferrus » Mon Mar 27, 2017 1:59 pm

I patched our v9.5 Veeam servers last week, with update 1.
Most thing went smoothly, but there's one outstanding issue I've noticed - that appears to have been caused by the update.

Our VMware vmkernel network is on a different subnet from the ESX servers and Veeam servers, so to create the NFS connections between VMware and Veeam - I had to set up static NFS mappings in vCenter and registry entries on the Veeam servers.

Since the update, the NFS export remains on the main Veeam B&R server - but the three proxy servers have had their registry keys wiped, and the static NFS mappings left 'inactive'.

I'll can recreate them again, but just wondering if anyone else experienced the same issue upgrading?

specifically the registry key here (but only on the proxy servers):

vmware-vsphere-f24/how-to-use-veeam-vpower-nfs-server-t10342-15.html#p177009

Code: Select all
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Veeam\Veeam NFS\Shared Folders\{GUID}

"nfsFolderName"="/VeeamBackup_FQDN OF YOUR BACKUP SERVER" (STRING TYPE)

[MERGED] Bug Report: vPower NFS export

Veeam Logoby ferrus » Tue Aug 01, 2017 10:22 am

Posted this after upgrading to 9.5 Update 1 - but it's either unique to our infrastructure only, or too few people have manual NFS mount points to confirm the issue.

https://forums.veeam.com/vmware-vsphere-f24/v9-5-update-1-nfs-issue-t41961.html

I've recently installed 9.5 Update 2, and the same issue occured:

The static NFS mount point on the main B&R server is retained
The static NFS mount points on all the proxy/repo servers are wiped, during the upgrade

Location:

Code: Select all
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Veeam\Veeam NFS\Shared Folders\{GUID}

"nfsFolderName"="/VeeamBackup_FQDN OF YOUR BACKUP SERVER" (STRING TYPE)


Could this be confirmed, and resolved for U3/Veeam 10?
Takes a while to set everything back up!

Confirmed, vPowerNFS installation package overwrites registry value. Cannot comment on when it is to be addressed though.
