SQL Server not available

Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

SQL Server not available

at home I use the Veeam Agent for Windows to make a copy of my harddisk to my NAS. The backup was configured in a earlier version of the agent without a problem.
When I now try to click on configure backup, I get a message that the microsoft SQL server hosting the configuration database is not available.

That is correct. No SQL server running on any of my pc's or NAS. But, how can I look into backup configuration without using a SQL server ?

Hello JohnDG,

VEB/VAW is using SQL localdb to store the job settings, so it looks like something went wrong. I'd recommend you to consult with our support team – go to Control Panel > Support > Technical support and submit a case (it’s free).
