All of my Windows servers are backing up fine but every time I try to back up a Linux server, I get the below error. I have increased virtual memory to 5GB and still get the message. Any hepl would be appreciated.

(Server: "BACKUP") (Job: "Linux-Full")  - -Full -- The job failed with the following error: A memory allocation request failed. The computer may be running low on virtual memory.

What variant of LInux are you running?  Check the SCL below to make sure that it is supported.

According to the SCL, BE 2012 only support Debian 5 & 6.  It does not support Debian 3.1
