SQL CLuster ((WSFC) Compatible

Veeam Logoby PostDBA » Fri Jul 07, 2017 10:09 am


We got a client using Sharepoint 2013 with its databases set on WSFC 2012r2(classic SQL CLuster with RAW disk)

We would need to know if Veeam is able to backup/restore databases from this SQL cluster? because I've seen this 100% working for SQL AlwaysOn but I am unable to find the information for SQL WIndows server cluster

Thanks in advance.

Hello PostDBA,

Veeam Agent for Windows cannot backup the database from shared storage (clustered disk). You can run a backup on a node and use native sql backup utility to store the files at the regular volume you are protecting with agent.
