Veeam Agent for Solaris skips ZFS snapshots

Challenge

Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 2.0 does not back up ZFS snapshots.

Cause

Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris 2.0 cannot back up ZFS snapshots that are explicitly specified as a source for backup.

This is a by-design limitation from Oracle. By default, the .zfs directory is not visible when listing directory contents. This setting prevents backup software from inadvertently backing up snapshots in addition to new data.

Solution

To back up ZFS snapshots with Veeam Agent for Oracle Solaris:

  1. Update the agent to version 2.1.0.277.
  2. Make a filesystem snapshot directory visible. For information on how to do this, see Oracle Administration Guide: https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E78901_01/html/E78912/gprhq.html.
