renaming BR host

Post by ThinkGrid » Oct 16, 2012 1:25 pm

Hi

I renamed the host which runs BR 6.1 but after reboot the Veeam Backup Service won't start

Sorry that don't have screenshot or error but wanted to know if this is a known issue

Thanks
Petrit

Hi Petrit,

What does Windows event log on your Veeam backup server say about this issue?

Thanks!

I've reverted Snapshot back but next time I try I'll have a look

Thought it was a known issue

Thanks anyway

Do you use a local SQL instance or a remote SQL server? If it's a local database then the problem could be that the old server name is still referenced in your registry. Veeam service won't start if it can't connect to the database.

You will find the registry keys under HKLM\Software\VeeaM\Veeam Backup and Replication and there the entry "SqlServerName".
