Cannot add a NFS Server to Veeam as a repository

I am trying to set up Veeam for use in our environment. I try to add an NFS Server to the Veeam software as a repository, and I keep getting the message "Failed to start PerlSoap protocol".

The NFS Server is running ubuntu server 16.04 LTS. The system has the default perl installation.
The strange thing is that I had done this before in a Virtual Box Environment with Veeam loaded on my desktop, and it added a NFS Server without issue. Now I'm getting ready to run Veeam in production, on a Windows 2012 R2 Server and I cannot connect to the NFS server that I need to use as a repository.

Any assistance would be welcomed :)

Thanks

It is a 64 bit distribution. I am running a zfs file system for the storage, 6 x 6 TB = 36 TB Raw..using raidz2 I get about 21TB usable.

Thank you but that didn't solve my issue. I cannot believe that Veeam is incapable of working with Ubuntu as a simple NFS server.

Hi

What are you trying to add?? A NFS Share?

Because it needs to be mounted first in another server(or in the Veeam server itself) and then used in your Veeam Server as a Backup Repository. This is for NFS or iSCSI.

Here is an article that I have wrote how to use the new NFS Direct Access feature.

Thank you! Your write up on the Proxy, gave me the input that I needed to correct the issue. Funny how Veeam doesn't mention you need a mount server to get it to work correctly.

Yes it's running on 64 bit Linux. I switched my server to CentOS 7, and had no issues connecting to my Veeam Server.
