HELP! Cannot Start VEEAM Service

Post by AlexLeadingEdge » Sep 19, 2016 10:21 pm

I want to send off a ticket but VEEAM EP won't start so I'm posting here instead.

Yesterday (Monday) I came in to find that the server has rebooted and VEEAM EP's service has failed to start. Telling it to restart says "Starting services..." and does that for several minutes before failing. Repairing VEEAM EP didn't fix the problem. Stopping antivirus system and repairing didn't fix the issue. After-hours I have rebooted the server but it didn't fix it. Uninstalled VEEAM, rebooted the server, reinstalled, still not starting the service.

I get the error message:

Failed to start service 'VeeamEndpointBackupSvc'. Click Retry to attempt to start the service again. Click Cancel to continue installation without starting the service.

Any idea what is causing this?!

How do I create a ticket when I can't access VEEAM EP? I have the logs, just let me know where to email them! :)

You can always open ticket via another installation of VEB. Please note that these forums are not monitored by our support team, and people behind these forums do not analyze log snippets.

How do I create a ticket when I can't access VEEAM EP?
Are you sure? Even though, the service is down tray app should be operational to let you open a support case – can you check that please?

Fixed!

As far as we can see from the log files, VEB is unable to connect to MS SQL database.

Code: Select all

[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error    Failed to start service.
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error    ExecuteNonQuery failed for Database 'master'.  (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.FailedOperationException)
[...]
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error    An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ExecutionFailureException)
[...]
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error    An error occurred while processing the log for database 'VeeamBackup'.  If possible, restore from backup. If a backup is not available, it might be necessary to rebuild the log.
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error    Could not open new database 'VeeamBackup'. CREATE DATABASE is aborted. (System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException)
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error       at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ConnectionManager.ExecuteTSql(ExecuteTSqlAction action, Object execObject, DataSet fillDataSet, Boolean catchException)
[21.09.2016 08:47:21] <04> Error       at Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Common.ServerConnection.ExecuteNonQuery(String sqlCommand, ExecutionTypes executionType)
Please try performing these steps:
1. Make sure VEB service is stopped
2. Delete folder C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Local DB\Instances\VeeamEndPoint
3. Delete folder C:\ProgramData\Veeam\EndpointData
4. Set registry value HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup\RecreateDatabase to "1"
5. Start VEB service
