Guida passo per passo

  1. Run the following command to find out the kernel version and the required GCC version:

    cat /proc/version

    ES: Linux version 4.4.0-104-generic (buildd@lgw01-amd64-022) (gcc version 5.4.0 20160609 (Ubuntu 5.4.0-6ubuntu1~16.04.5)

  2. Run the following command to check whether the Make tool and the GCC compiler are installed:
    make -v
    gcc -v

    For gcc, ensure that the version returned by the command is the same as in the gcc version in step 1. For make, just ensure that the command runs.

  3. Check whether the appropriate version of the packages for building kernel modules is installed:
      • In Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, and Fedora, run the following command:
    yum list installed | grep kernel-devel

      • In Ubuntu, run the following commands:
    dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-headers
    dpkg --get-selections | grep linux-image
  4. In either case, ensure that the package versions are the same as in Linux version in step 1.

  5. Run the following command to check whether the Perl interpreter is installed:

    perl --version

    If you see the information about the Perl version, the interpreter is installed.

The setup program will download and install the packages automatically.


Run the following command:

yum install perl



Run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

sudo apt-get install linux-image-`uname -r`

sudo apt-get install gcc-<package version>

sudo apt-get install make

sudo apt-get install perl

 In Ubuntu's case, after gcc-version package install check again

gcc -v

if not present you have to additionally install gcc package running

sudo apt-get install gcc

Download or upload the agent on machine.

Give execution permissions:

chmod +x agent.bin

Verify to have RPM utility installed (needed for installation).

chmod +x agent.bin

Linux Agent installation prerequisites

Make sure that the RPM Package Manager (RPM) is installed in your system. Before installing the product on a Linux distribution that does not use RPM, such as Ubuntu, you need to install RPM manually; for example, by running the following command:

  • sudo yum install rpm (Red Hat based distributions)
  • sudo apt-get install rpm (Debian based distributions); in case of an Ubuntu distro.
  • sudo zypper install rpm (Suse based distributions)
  • sudo yast install rpm (Suse based distributions)”



sudo ./agent.bin

Specify the credentials of the account to which the machine should be assigned.

Select the check boxes for the agents that you want to install (if asked). The following agents are available:

             Agent for Linux (not Virtuozzo)

In case of server without graphical interface, select "Show Registration Details", copy and paste code in Acronis "Add" section using "Registration via Code" or using the following link:

If you have to uninstall the agent run:

sudo /usr/lib/Acronis/BackupAndRecovery/uninstall/uninstall

and eventually remove the machine from Acronis console.
