When will current CentOS 8.4 and Stream be supported by the Backup Agent?
The official documentation says that CentOS is supported to version 8.3 but not above and CentOS Stream.
As a Service Provider we naturally always try to keep our own and customers servers (most of them are VMs) up to date. For about half a year or so, there is no support for current CentOS-Versions with a current Kernel.
Problem seems to be the snapapi-module that somehow does not support current Kernel 4.18 and above. Mentioned e.g. here: https://kb.acronis.com/de/node/68870
Without the snapapi-module we are not able to backup and recover the full machine but only the most important files. Really annoying in case of a recovery since the whole OS setup and installation of services has to be done before you can recover the backed up files.
Other solutions like storapi on VMware/ESXi are no alternative because most customers are not willing to pay for it.
If this situation continues as is, from our perspective, Acronis can not be used for maintained CentOS VMs.
