Problem

NAKIVO recovery service fails to run on the Linux VM that is selected as a recovery server.

Background

On Linux, NAKIVO recovery service needs special permissions to run. However, such permissions are not configured by the default NAKIVO installation due to security considerations.

Solution

Please create a rule file for the Transporter service in /etc/pam.d/ by following the steps below:

  1. Launch the vi editor and create a new bhsvc file:
    vi /etc/pam.d/bhsvc
  2. Edit the content of the bhsvc file to have its content as follows:
    auth required pam_unix.so nullok
    auth required pam_nologin.so
    account required pam_unix.so
    session required pam_selinux.so close
    session required pam_loginuid.so
  3. Save the bhsvc file and close the vi editor:
    1. Press the Esc button to switch the vi editor to the Normal mode.
    2. Enter the “:” symbol to switch to the Command-line mode.
    3. In the Command-line mode, enter the “x” symbol and then press Enter.
  4. Provide necessary permissions for the bhsvc file:
    chmod 644 /etc/pam.d/bhsvc
