Default UX Agent for Linux

It appears that when setting up a backup job to back up a linux server, none of the mounted volumes are shown.

Is there a way to have the agent show mounted volumes?

Thanks!

What Version of Linux is this? And what file system is it using?

Default Linux OS and File system

We are using Linux Fedora 7 64 bit on the server. The file system is ext3.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks!

Hi,

Our Linux agent does not officially support 64bit versions of Linux. However you can still do the backup if you set up a samba share, and then use the File by File Network share agent.

Hope this helps!

Update to this issue.



I talked with the forum member over the phone. We were able to get the backups to work. Instead of using the RPM file we used the ubux-2.31-linux.tar.gz to do the install of the Linux agent.

Please note in some cases this will work on a 64bit os, but will not work in all cases.
