Veeam Agent for Windows SQL Cluster

Veeam Logoby bhildebrand1 » Wed May 17, 2017 7:57 pm

Is it possible to use the Veeam Agent for Windows on physical SQL server that is clustered? I have attempted and failed and from what I can see is it never asks for the SQL server name(which would be different than the server name since it is clustered).

Any thoughts?

We support SQL AlwaysOn Availability Groups but not SQL running on Windows Failover Cluster. However, today at VeeamON we announced future support for Failover Cluster.

Thank you for your quick answer and that is great that you will have future support.

Until then let me ask this. If I have a physical server that is the active node of the cluster and I perform a full backup, it looks like it grabs all drives even if those drives are part of the windows cluster. If that is the case is it possible to take that full backup(of the physical server) and restore it to a VM and have all of the drives be created as well? I did an initial test and it looked like only the OS drive was there on the VM but I was expecting to see all drives.

Thanks again!

Hi Brian,

Joe was not correct. Today VAW does not support clusters and SQL AlwaysOn. Sorry for confusion and any inconvenience caused.

My apologies--I was thinking about VBR and not VAW regarding SQL AlwaysOn.
