Log shipping files location

Veeam Logoby EBoucq » Thu Apr 21, 2016 2:23 pm

Hi,

When you choose to backups the (SQL) logs in your Veeam job, you have to select a log shipping server.
Could you tell me in what directory of the repository, Veeam will copy those logs please ?

Thanks.

They will be saved into the same folder created by the Backup Job. If your job is called "SQL servers" it will be on the repo in the folder "SQL servers".

Hi Niels,

Thanks for your reply.

I chose a different server/Repository so the VM backup files shouldn't be in the same folder as the log shipping files. When I look in the repository I chose for the logs, there's no folder names after the job name....

Hi,

There should be no nested folder in your backup folder - log backups have .vlb extension and are kept in the same folder where your VM backups reside. The absence of .vlb files would mean that no logs have been backed up.

Thank you.

Eric, if you're asking about the temporary location of transaction logs backups on the shipping server itself, then they are stored in the C:\Windows\Temp folder.

To be more precise, I believe we are using whatever location %TEMP% system environment variable points to, which by default is C:\Windows\Temp.

Hi.

Is it possible to change this to another folder/drive?

By redirecting %TEMP% to another location.
