Challenge

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.

Cause

All script files are uploaded to and executed from /tmp, which may be mounted with the “noexec” attribute.

Solution

Execute this command:
mount | grep noexec | grep tmp

Example:

User-added image

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.

More information

Further information regarding mounting attributes and the fstab file can be found here:
