Linux Integration Service Update Required RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a VM setup running CentOS7 which I use for a few services which works OK.

    I am looking to backup this VM using Backup Assist the same way as I do with my Windows VMs. The backup fails and I believe it was due to LIS not being installed. I have now installed LIS but it still fails. I also noticed that under the Hypervisor the VM has a message that says that an update is required for the Integration Service. I am currently running LIS 4.1.

    Any ideas?

  • How about doing simple steps, the KISS method:

    1. Shut down the virtual machine
    2. Export the Virtual Machine and/or Copy the .VHD files

  • Hi Matt,

    >>I am looking to backup this VM using Backup Assist the same way as I do with my Windows VMs.

    Have you contacted the technical support of Backup Assist to see if linux vm needs any other settings?


    >>I have now installed LIS but it still fails.

    Is there any error message in the backup application?

    If yes, you could contact its technical support to troubleshoot.

    >>I am currently running LIS 4.1

    As far as I know, it is the latest version.

    Best Regards,

  • I have seen the HyperV gui misreport with centos7 that an update is required.

    It should show the correct version from cmd line and from the cluster gui. (At least it does for me.)

    Get-VM | ft Name, IntegrationServicesVersion

    I would confirm that you do have a healthy and current install of 4.1 first.

  • The version check message does not apply to Linux VMs, you can ignore it.
