well that's lovely, except it does NOT work. I have a SQL server, and I point it to the server (which BTW I *KNOW* it's configured correctly) but I keep getting an error:
Failed to register "Veeam Monitoring" user group on database host.
You may have to add it manually.
Error code: 1722
I haven't seen messages this cryptic since "bad command or file name" from Dos 3.0.
So I have tried, been trying to get this configured, and it's NOT working.
It would also be nice if you could give me some hints as to what to look for and how to setup a remote SQL server that actually works, because "you can select to use remote SQL server during setup." is not exactly stellar support.
I am about to drop kick this software, and forget the whole thing. I am already annoyed, then I send emails no one responds for days, so as far I am concerned I could care less if we buy this software or not. WE are a potential customer, and if you would rather NOT have us as a customer, great. I will use someone else. This apathetic support and lack luster response is very un nerving, and I am a support person myself, so I know something about HOW to treat customers, and this isn't it.
So I am trying to make this software work. I installed a FRESH copy of Windows 2003, it's all patched, nothing else installed except Veeam software, and it's slow, sloppy, and locks up. My LAST resort is attempt to use a remote SQL server, rather than a local database, and at this point I can't even test this software, because it's not working.
All I want is just a little instruction, what, where and how.
What the Veeam software is looking for.
Where to configure the remote SQL connection (because there is no - remote SQL connection to configure. The only option is to use a local SQL Express or not)
How to setup Monitoring so that it works and not slow as molasses on a dual core machine with nothing else running.
That's where I am at. If I don't get answers to my satisfaction, then I will have no choice but to NEVER recommend Veeam software to anyone ever. We may not be a really big potential customer, but I have lots of people asking me for advice and tools to use, and I don't know WHO I would recommend, but I can guarantee that there is 1 company I would **NOT** recommend.
