How to make a CLEAN uninstall ?

Veeam Logoby Psiloceras » Thu Jun 08, 2017 8:23 am

Hello,

I have installed Veeam Backup & Replication on a test environment. In order to fill our own wiki, I uninstalled it (following https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95) to make it again, more slowly, and write every step. But at the end it finished with an error and I discovered that Veeam installs a SQL Server that is not removed and blocks any attempt to reinstall the software. And I can't manage to uninstall all properly in order to install it again.
Could I have a cleean process to uninstall the software, please.

You can remove SQL Server software and other redistributables installed as a part of Veeam B&R installation using Add/Remove Programs. Please contact technical support, if you need assistance in cleaning everything up.

Also, after you removed all the programs, you can delete the SQL installation folder, the Veeam installation folder under program files, and the log folder under programdata.

thank you all :)

My problem was not only related to the SQL Server (you have to uninstall all the parts in a specific order and to go find some last remains in the registry). I had to go in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.VEEAMSQL2012\MSSQL\DATA and there I had to savagely destroy VeeamBackup and VeeamBackup_log.

Once done, Veeam could be reinstalled properly :D

[MERGED] Uninstalled Veeam but some components still there

Hi,

We recently moved Veeam Backup & Replication to another server. Therefore, I uninstalled it from server1 (Windows 2012R2) through the control panel (appwiz.cpl). I also uninstalled all Sql databases and Sql software from the server through appwiz.cpl. Unfortunately there still seem to be some leftovers of Veeam (even after reboot). These are the leftovers:

- Veeam Log Shipper. I can still see this running in services.msc. How do I clean this?

- Sql databases. Apparantly there's still some Veeam databases running on server1? Because this server is being backed up by Veeam and it reports the databases being present there. How do I clean this? (all Sql servers are already removed through appwiz.cpl)

Thanks
