Change SQL Server backend

Post by JWester »

we want to change the local SQL server express backend of Veeam B&R to a clustered SQL backend.
Copying the DB ist not really a problem - but how do I change the SQL credentials? I cannot find settings for this in the GUI.
Simply copying the Sql* settings in the registry also won't work - credentials have changed. I think I have to modify SqlLockInfo but without documentation I don't want to try.
Many thanks in advance!

Hi Joern, the easiest way is probably to run Veeam Backup setup again, and point it to the new database. You will be able to set the credentials on the same setup step as well. Thanks.

Alternatively, you can just edit the account under which Veeam Backup Service is running. Thanks.
