Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris Installation Issue


Some users have encountered the following installation issue:
Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris setup packages downloaded from our prior to the July 25, 2019 might change the default file permissions on the nohup utility located at /usr/bin/nohup in Solaris system. The default permissions should be 0755 (rwxr-xr-x) and the Veeam Agent installer might set an unnecessary sticky bit.


This issue is caused by an improper installation script and we advise you to check the actual permissions to make sure that no sticky bit is present.


To do so, execute the following command:
ls -l /usr/bin/nohup
The resulting output should have “-rwxr-xr-x” permissions. If the output has different permissions, please change the values to the default by issuing the following command:
chmod 755 /usr/bin/nohup

The improper access rights do not influence the functionality of the product and you may continue to use it. The issue was fixed and the new setup packages are available on, please use the updated packages for all new deployments. The md5 sums for updated packages are as follows:
