Hello,

I'm having problems using Veeam Backup on my server that has Linux OS and has Barracuda installed on the server. I receive the following error: "Cannot use VMware Tools quiescence because VMware Tools are not found." Does anyone know if there is a way to use Veeam to backup Barracuda on a server running Linux? I had done a little research and I'm just seeing this issue is due to needing a Windows OS.

It should not make any difference to the Backup you obtain, it will just be Crash Consistent, because it cannot quiesce the Guest virtual machine.

We have many Windows OS machines, we do not quiesce the OS, because it causes issue with the Windows OS, e.g. database corruption.

all restore fine, and work correctly.
