Creating Custom Veeam Recovery Media

Starting from Veeam Agent for Linux 1.0 Update 1, you can create a custom Veeam Recovery Media. This option may be helpful if your computer uses hardware that requires drivers not included in the generic Veeam Recovery Media. When you create a custom Veeam Recovery Media, Veeam Agent for Linux copies the Linux kernel running on your computer with its currently loaded modules and includes them into the custom recovery media.

Before you create custom Veeam Recovery Media, check the following prerequisites:

  • The machine must run Veeam Agent for Linux 1.0 Update 1.
  • The Linux system must have the genisoimage package installed.
  • If you plan to create custom Veeam Recovery Media with EFI support, the Linux system must also have the following packages installed:
  • xorriso
  • isolinux (or syslinux, if the software package repository of your Linux distribution lacks the isolinux package)

To create custom Veeam Recovery Media, use the following command:

veeamconfig config patchiso --input <input_path> --output <output_path>

or

veeamconfig config patchiso --efi --input <input_path> --output <output_path>

where:

  • <input_path> — path to the ISO file of the generic Veeam Recovery Media.
  • <output_path> — path to the resulting ISO file of the custom Veeam Recovery Media.
  • --efioption that defines whether custom Veeam Recovery Media should be able to boot on EFI-based systems. Without this option, custom Veeam Recovery Media will be able to boot on BIOS-based systems only.

For example:

$ veeamconfig config patchiso --input veeam/iso/veeam-recovery-media.iso --output veeam/iso/veeam-recovery-media-srv01.iso --efi
