Proxmox VE

Proxmox environments require backup storage to be defined on each server. This storage must be a location accessible from Storware Backup & Recovery Node (the simplest setup, when you use only 1 node, is to create NFS share for the staging path on Storware Backup & Recovery Node).

  1. Create storage from NFS share (Content-type: VZDump)

  • The export share must be set to use the UID and GID of the vprotect user.

  • Example export configuration in /etc/exports to the selected hypervisor in the RHV cluster:

    /vprotect_data    PROXMOX_HOSTS(fsid=6,rw,sync,insecure,all_squash,anonuid=993,anongid=990)

    where anonuid=993 and anongid=990 should have the correct UID and GID returned by command:

    [root@vProtect3 ~]# id vprotect
    uid=993(vprotect) gid=990(vprotect) groups=990(vprotect)
  • Both import and export operations will be done using these NFS shares – restore will be done directly to this storage domain, so you can easily import the backup into the Proxmox environment

    • Backups must be restored to the export path (the node automatically changes the names to the original paths that are recognized by Proxmox).

  • The name for storage must be provided later in the node configuration (Hypervisor -> Proxmox )section.

File-level restore support for VMA images

  1. Prepare the VMA extractor on Storware Backup & Recovery Node - you have 2 options:

    • Build a VMA extractor like this (requires Internet on the node):

      cd /opt/vprotect/scripts/vma
    • Download the VMA extractor from the Storware FTP (in the Add-ons directory) and install it.

      cd /opt/vprotect/scripts/vma

Public key authentication

The details are described in the SSH public key authentication section.
