Troubleshooting

Downgrading your Veeam agent fails

You updated to version 3 and now the agent is incompatible to your repository. Therefore you need to downgrade back to version 2. Running your job in the downgraded version fails because of the veeamsnap module.

Reason:
The module isnt fitting your kernel

Fix:
Execute the following to downgrade successfully

#List the current installed packages
rpm -qa |grep veeam

#Remove the packages
rpm -e veeam-<version> veeamsnap-<version>

#Clean reinstall (veeamsnap will be installed as dependency)
yum install veeam-2.0.1.665-1.el6.x86_64 

#or

rpm -ivh veeam-2.0.1.665-1 kmod-veeamsnap-2.0.1.665-1

#List the module
dkms status
   veeamsnap, 2.0.1.665, 2.6.32-754.11.1.el6.x86_64, x86_64: installed (WARNING! Diff between built and installed module!)

#Remove the module, rebuild and force install it
dkms remove -m veeamsnap -v 2.0.1.665 --all
dkms build -m veeamsnap -v 2.0.1.665
dkms install -m veeamsnap -v 2.0.1.665 --force

#open "veeam" and edit configuration via "C"
