SQL Server Detection

Post by lightsout » Feb 23, 2018 2:43 pm

All,

Just a quick question.

I've got some Windows servers, which have some SQL components (e.g. native client), but no SQL database on them. Yet when I do "Appliaction Items" recovery against them, I do see SQL as an option.

My question, how does Veeam know this?

Thanks!

Hi lightsout.

Looks like backup job has collected the SQL metadata from these hosts. I assume if the database is not there you won’t see these instances in the backup (try to start a point in time restore, to be sure).

Yes, my question is, what is the SQL metadata it collects?

My guess - the presence of a VSS writer for SQL server!
