Problem

When configuring a File Recovery job where RHEL 9 is the chosen recovery source or the location of the assigned Transporter, LVMs may not appear in the Files step of the File Recovery Wizard.

Background

By default, RHEL 9 is configured to allow LVM access to only a specific set of devices managed by the Administrator. Thus, under the default configuration, the relevant Transporter is unable to manipulate LVM devices during recovery.

Solution

To make sure LVMs in RHEL 9 are successfully handled by NAKIVO Backup & Replication, do the following on the machine where the relevant Transporter is installed:

  1. Find and open the lvm.conf file located in /etc/lvm/
  2. Locate the use_devicesfile option and set it to 0. The resulting line should look like this:

    use_devicesfile = 0
  3. Save your changes and create the intended recovery job again.
