The steps outlined in this article are used as a troubleshooting step when an issue occurs with a Linux server that requires that the Veeam Transport service be manually reinstalled.
When phasing out a Linux server, these steps are not necessary; In such a scenario, simply removing the Linux server from Veeam Backup & Replication will cause the Veeam Transport Service to be uninstalled from the Linux server.
The uninstall procedure will cause all Veeam Backup & Replication tasks currently utilizing the Linux server to fail. As such, it is highly recommended to ensure that either no tasks are occurring within Veeam Backup & Replication or that the Linux server is not currently being used by Veeam Backup & Replication.
Generally speaking, if the Linux server is being used by a Veeam Backup & Replication task, there will be a 'veeamagent' process active. Use the following command to check for active 'veeamagent' processes:
ps -e | grep veeamagent
The following commands are to be executed on the Linux server.
sudo service veeamtransport stop
sudo /opt/veeam/transport/veeamtransport -u
sudo rm -rf /opt/veeam/transport/
