Installing Veeam Agent for Linux in Offline Mode

In this article

    If a computer where you want to install Veeam Agent for Linux has no connection to the internet, for example, for security reasons, you can install Veeam Agent for Linux in the offline mode. In this scenario, you do not need to download and install the Veeam software repository installation package (veeam-release). Instead, you need to download the entire Veeam Agent for Linux packages from the Veeam software repository and install them on the target computer.

    To install Veeam Agent for Linux:

    1. On a computer that is connected to the internet, download Veeam Agent packages intended for your Linux distribution from the Veeam software repository.

    The repository has the following structure:

    • For Debian packages: Package format > Package

    For example, Veeam Agent for Linux packages in the Debian format reside in the /deb/veeam/ and /deb/veeamsnap/ folders of the Veeam software repository.

    • For RPM packages: Package format > Distribution > Version > Architecture

    For example, Veeam Agent for Linux packages for 64-bit RHEL 7 reside in the /rpm/el/7/x86_64/ folder of the Veeam software repository, and packages for 64-bit SLES 15 SP2 reside in the /rpm/sles/SLE_15_SP2/x86_64/ folder.

    1. Save Veeam Agent packages to a directory that can be accessed from the computer where you want to install the product, for example, a directory on a local drive or USB drive, or a network shared folder.
    2. On the computer where you want to install Veeam Agent, navigate to the directory where you have saved the packages and install Veeam Agent:  

     

    Installing Veeam Agent for Linux in Offline Mode TIP

    You can also set up a local mirror of the Veeam software repository in your internal network and add this repository to the list of software sources on a computer where you want to install the product. These operations may differ depending on the Linux distribution and package manager that you use. To learn more, refer to the documentation of your Linux distribution.

    After you add a local repository to the list of software sources on a computer, you will be able to install and upgrade Veeam Agent for Linux in a regular way. To learn more, see Installing Veeam Agent for Linux and Upgrading Veeam Agent for Linux.
