|For troubleshooting or advanced configuration, you may need to log in to a Linux appliance deployed by Veeam Backup & Replication.|
Linux appliances are used by Veeam Backup & Replication for several purposes:
|You must log in to the appliance as root. You can set a password in the credentials manager, or use the default password.|
To set the password for the particular type of appliance, edit it in the credentials manager.
For Surebackup and Cloud Connect, you must re-deploy the appliance before you can use the new password. The multi-OS FLR appliance does not persist between restore sessions, so to use the new password you only need to close the file browser and restore again.
The password will be applied to all newly-deployed appliances. It is not possible to specify different passwords for different instances of the same appliance type.
You can only use a default password if no password has been set in the credentials manager.
To determine the default password for a particular appliance:
1) Start with the appliance name as it can be seen in the infrastructure view in the hypervisor;
2) Replace any “.” or "_" or space or parenthesis with “-“, but skip a trailing - (if any);
3) Add “_r” to the end.
For example, if your appliance’s vm name is “network.extension_appliance(cloud connect)”, the default password would be “network-extension-appliance-cloud-connect_r”.
