When interacting with Linux servers, Veeam Backup & Replication may encounter a “Permission Denied” error during script execution (Pre-freeze, post-thaw, and repository data mover agent scripts), even when the account being used is the root user.
All script files are uploaded to and executed from /tmp, which may may be mounted with the “noexec” attribute.
Execute this command:
mount | grep noexec | grep tmp
If there is an entry for the mount point /tmp with the attribute noexec the fstab will need to be edited to remove this attribute.
Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
