NAKIVO Backup & Replication cannot perform VMware VM backup if the Transporter is installed on Ubuntu 16.04+ and the SAN Transport mode is selected.


NAKIVO Backup & Replication can read data directly from VMware VM disks located on SAN, bypassing the network, which can significantly increase job performance.
This is achieved with VMware's Direct SAN Access technology, which enables accessing source VM disks directly from the SAN.


If NAKIVO Backup & Replication Transporter was already installed on Ubuntu 16.04+, install AppArmor service using the command above and re-run Transporter installation.
This will re-write configuration so SAN access will be enabled.

If this doesn't help, uninstall Transporter completely and install it back again.
