Veeam and FreeBSD

Post by karim » Jun 07, 2019 8:18 am

Hello,

we are running a freenas vm (FreeBSD 11.2-STABLE), and i got 2 issues :

1- veeam cannot index files because the mlocate package does not exists while the locate command is installed. is there a workaround for this ?

2- the flr appliance doesn't mount the backup, the filesystem is ZFS, what it is the compatility between veeam and this fs type or with freebsd ?

Code: Select all

X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
# mount
rootfs on / type rootfs (rw,size=480044k,nr_inodes=120011)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,relatime)
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,relatime,mode=600,ptmxmode=000)
none on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,relatime,size=65536k)
# 
thank you for your help

Hi,

1. Unfortunately there is no failover to locate.

2. FLR from ZFS to BSD is not supported as currently FLR appliance is missing some of the required components, that should be fixed in future releases.

Given that, I can only suggest you to try performing Instant Recovery of the VM, and copy files from it manually.

Thanks!

hi, thank you for your reply
for another case the support team told me to install the 4b update, do you know if this update fixes this problem?
thanks

The mount problem is marked as "solved" for U4b (which also contains lots of other fixes and improvements), so you should probably give it a try.

Thanks!
