Connecting to Veeam Software Repository

To install Veeam Agent for Linux on a Linux computer, you must first connect the computer to the Veeam software repository. The Veeam software repository contains the Veeam Agent installation packages specific to the Linux distribution, version and architecture of the computer where you plan to install the product.

To connect to the Veeam software repository, do the following:

  1. Download the Veeam software repository installation package (veeam-release) from the this Veeam webpage, and save the downloaded package on the computer.


  1. Navigate to the directory where you have saved the veeam-release package and install the package using the command for your Linux distribution.


If the user account you use for Veeam Agent installation does not have root privileges, you can temporarily elevate this user account to root by using the sudo prefix in the install commands. If you run multiple commands in one command line, you must use the sudo prefix before each command — for example, sudo rpm -ivh ./veeam-release* && sudo yum check-update. Make sure the sudo user has sufficient privileges to run these commands.

To install the veeam-release package, use the following commands:

For CentOS 7 / RHEL / Oracle Linux / Fedora / Rocky Linux / AlmaLinux

rpm -ivh ./veeam-release* && yum check-update

For openSUSE / SLES

zypper in ./veeam-release* && zypper refresh

For Debian / Ubuntu

dpkg -i ./veeam-release* && apt-get update
