Backup Exec Agent for Linux (Fedora 16 - 64bit)

Created: 02 Apr 2012 | 4 comments

Dear support / Communitty,

We are running Backup Exec 12.5 as a Backup Solution for our current environment, since we could not upgrade to a newer version of Backup Exec because of Terminal Server Agent related issues. (Conflict with metaframe software).

So far so good, the problems show up on one of our Filers.
We recently installed a new Storage repository running a 64bit Linux Distro (Fedora 16), and we are unable to get an agent working on this system.

What did we do so far:
 
- We tried to install the newest 12.5 beremote agent, the newest 2010 beremote agent aswell as the newest 2012 beremote agent... no luck.
- Via google we found some related articles about missing or missing kernel support, we were unable to solve this by installing the required libraries.

Is there any supported beremote client for Fedora 16 (64) bit?
Any experienced users who faced the same kind of problems?
Or is there a other way to backup files and directories using NDMP?

Backup Exec does not support Fedora.

Hmm im wondering if its related to Fedora, since other machines are working properly on Fedora15 with the Backup Agent 12.5 (ralus=2213.314380).

The installer also starts and completes succefully.
But as soon as we start the agent, it crashes after 5 sec.

As previously advised, BE has never supported Fedora.  This means that Symantec did not do any testing with Fedora to ensure that BE can backup and restore a Fedora machine correctly.  If you managed to get it to work, you are lucky.  If you encounter any problems, you are on your own because you cannot open a support case with Symantec.  It is not wise to use unsupported configuration.  You may find yourself in a situation where the backup completes successfully, but you cannot restore the backup or the machine cannot be re-boot after a restore.

The problem is related to a change in kernel 2.6.39. There are two options: Downgrade the kernel to version 2.6.39-rc1 or prior, or patch the kernel.

 

I've managed to track down the change in the kernel which broke the agent. It's fairly trivial to patch, and I have the agent working with kernel 3.3.2 on Arch by patching their default kernel.

Here is the commit which broke things: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/stable/linux-stable.git;a=commitdiff;h=41c31f318a5209922d051e293c61e4724daad11c

There may be some minor side effects of making this change however, detailed here: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33992
