How to Install the Veeam Agent for Linux on Ubuntu Linux

1. You can run a test on an Ubuntu server VM on VMware Workstation or via Virtualbox.

2. Download the free edition for Veeam for Linux agent (Note: The agent relies on Veeam Snap, so you need to install both).
https://www.veeam.com/linux-backup-download.html

Public Repository: http://repository.veeam.com/.private/deb/ (RPM or Deb Package managers)

*Instructions: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/agentforlinux/userguide/installation_offline.html?ver=30#deb

There is a depedency on dkms. Run which dkms on your server CLI to verify that it is installed. You will get a response /usr/sbin/dkms if it is installed.

If it is not installed run sudo apt-get install dkms - y

3. Create a folder for veeam under /opt

4. sudo wget http://repository.veeam.com/.private/deb/veeamsnap/veeamsnap_3.0.2.1185_all.deb
5. sudo wget http://repository.veeam.com/.private/deb/veeam/veeam_3.0.2.1185_i386.deb

FYI. If you use the links here https://www.veeam.com/linux-backup-free-download.html it will give you version 1.0 etc of the application. Grab the latest version directly from the repositories instead so you have the latest release.

6. sudo dpkg -i ./veeamsnap* && sudo dpkg -i ./veeam*

7. After installation run sudo veeam and then it will open the prompt for the location you want to store you backup.

8. Hit "C" on your keyboard to configure the backups.


9. After you click "C". Name your backup job and finish the configurations. FYI for you Windows dudes...there is no mouse. You have to use the keyboard tab key.


10. Finish the configurations. Identify your Veeam Repository or you can backup to a location of your choice.


11. After you finish identifying your location (AWS S3, Google Cloud Bucket, etc). Run your backup.

12. Recover your backup into AWS and Bam! Done.

13. Veeam CLI commands:

sudo veeam
sudo veeamconfig (shows a list of commands)

command reference on the man page. Run 'man veeamconfig'

check previous sessions: sudo veeamconfig session list

How to Setup CAC/PIV Cards on Ubuntu Linux 20.04LTS

NOTE: Verified to work with PIV/CAC Cards NOTE: Do not use a Regular USB if you are traveling. Only use a Military Grade FIPS 140-2, Level 3 Certified Device. Do Not use that Fingerprint reader garbage. What if your finger got chopped off? Use a Pin you can easily remember because if you forget it, your VM and data on the USB will be toast and not recoverable.  NOTE: This tutorial is for a bare-metal Ubuntu Linux 20.04 LTS laptop, not a virtual machine.
