I’ve been having some fun getting the R1soft Backup Manager agent installed on some openSuse servers and so decided to write a blog post on some tips.
First of all you’ll need to download the agent package and install the RPM packages using the command:
rpm -i *.rpm
And you’ll want to get the backup manager’s key using:
serverbackup-setup --get-key [Manager_URL]
You’ll need to install the kernel source package. Use this command:
zypper install kernel-source
You may be getting the following error when trying to run the command “r1soft-setup –get-module”.
Cannot find the kernel-source package for your kernel
And if you enter the command “uname -r” and compare that with the version of the linux headers stored under /usr/src you’ll notice that the versions are different.
This can be resolved be running the following commands:
zypper refresh zypper update kernel-default kernel-default-base kernel-firmware
That should bring the installed kernel up-to-date with the installed kernel source.
Now all you need to do is run the following command and reboot. You should be all set!
