Unable to remove credentials from VeeamZIP jobs ...

Post by Didi7 » Jul 28, 2017 9:53 pm

Hello,

I am unable to remove credentials from VeeamZIP jobs? How is that done?

Error:
Credentials are currently in use on at least one object. Continue anyway?

A KB I found did not help.

Strange behaviour!

I investigated the complete VBR for these objects but they were nowhere to find for me! A history entry is available, when a VeeamZIP job is finished, but other objects are not available to my knowledge, therefore I am unable to find the object for VeeamZip credentials, for which a share was used.

Do we really need to manually remove those credentials from the SQL database every time?

Here is a screenshot of the error ...

If I try to delete the 'ZZZ9' credential, I get the upper error. It must be from a VeeamZip job, but when the job finishes, the object is no longer visible.

Any ideas?

I managed to delete the credentials with ...

SELECT * FROM [Backup.Model.MruList]

DELETE FROM [Backup.Model.MruList] WHERE url = ‘<share path>’

Afterwards, I could remove the credentials as well.

Awkward! Is that the only option?

Have you tried to change the credentials in VeeamZIP options?

Hello foggy,

thanks for your input, unfortunately I don't understand how this could help to fix my credential deletion problems.

By mistake I used credentials of the VM and not of the share (for which access was granted anyway) and the problems began.

If you change the credentials to the correct ones, I believe you will stop seeing this message.
