How to add an XFS Repository to Veeam

This is the second article talking about how to set the Veeam Repository up with XFS

In my last article I wrote about how to create an XFS volume.

Now let’s see how to integrate it!

Numbers of step are quite easy

  1. Add a new Linux Server.
  2. Create Repository  with XFS add on.

The first step seems to be very easy and …  it is … if you have already set up correctly your linux firewall.


Because when you add a new server you can select which ports will be used to communicate from and to Backup Server to the new Repository

Let’s configure the firewall on centos Ubuntu server (ufw)

To check the status just type: sudo ufw status

If it is disabled, change his status with: sudo ufw status enable

For Opening the right ports the commands are:

sudo ufw allow 22/tcp

sudo ufw allow 2500:3300/tcp

as shown from Veeam user guide:

Check your job with the following command

sudo lsof -i:22

Now it’s time to create the new XFS repository following these easy steps:

  • Adding New Server

Select Linux Server and click on the Advanced button.

Check if the ports we have previous configurated are present.

Now select the server (in my case is cento01),  Browse the XFS folder and then select the XFS option (in Yellow)

Just some more next click and finally you have finally configurated your new XFS repository.

If you want to have more details about how to set up the firewall please have a look at the following site:
