SQL error when running PowerShell script

Post by smithjamesp55 »

As a corollary, when I call Powershell from a batch file and register the Veeam PSSnapin, I get a SQL error when the script tries to connect to return the data. When I run the command (and even my entire script) in the Powershell that's built in to Veeam, it works the way I want it to. Is there a switch or some parameters I need to add when I call Powershell or register the Veeam snap in? Or how would I call the Veeam-version of Powershell from my batch file?

Thanks!!

Hello James,

Could you please clarify what type of error do you see while running PowerShell script? On top of that, please take a look at this topic which explains how to run a PS script from a batch file.

Thank you!

Sorry for the delayed response, I was out of town. Here is the error I get:

Code: Select all

Get-VBRBackupSession : SQL server is not available
At c:\veeamlog\DailyLog.ps1.ps1:10 char:23
+   Get-VBRBackupSession <<<<  | where-object {$_.Info.CreationTime -gt $OneDayAgo} | ft | out-file "$Location\$File"
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidOperation: (Veeam.Backup.Po...BRBackupSession:GetVBRBackupSession) [Get-VBRBackupSession], CAppException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : Backup,Veeam.Backup.PowerShell.Command.GetVBRBackupSession
Thanks!

James, let our support team investigate that, as I haven't seen this error before. I would also appreciate if you could update this topic with the resolution you find with our technical team.

Just wanted to follow up on this one. Running the batch file from a command prompt with administrator privileges works. When I configure it in Scheduled Tasks, there's a checkbox to run with the highest privileges, and it ran successfully this morning.
