Backup SQL Always ON 2016 Basic Availiblity Group

hello, i have a 2 SQL Server 2016 Standard with Basic Availiblity Group. i have Databases on both hosts, but have only 2 which are on high availiblity state. so i want to backup both nodes, but the backup on the secondary replica fails, because this is a limitation of BAG. but in fact i have normal databases on the secondary node, so my question is, is it possible to exclude the database from backup on the second node? i can only exclude the complete database from veeam over the registry tweak, but i want to backup the HA Database which is active on the primary node.

any ideas?

kind regards,

Hi Sebastian, indeed, Basic Availability Group doesn't allow backup of databases from secondary node (there's no read access on secondary replica). We already have a requirement to detect and exclude such databases from VSS processing and will address this in one of the future updates. Thanks.
