veeam backup before upgrade

Post by morciod » Aug 12, 2013 3:43 pm

The upgrade requirements indicate to do a SQL backup of the Veeam database prior to doing the upgrade. is there a utility to do this?
I only see SQL configuration tools no maintenance and in veeam i dont see any backup options

It can be done with the special tool called Configuration Backup that was introduced in 6.5 version. This feature is responsible for retrieving configuration data directly from the SQL database. Configuration backup can be found under: Menu -> Configuration backup.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Debra, please download SQL Management Studio and perform Veeam B&R database via this tool manually. Hope this helps!

And with Management Studio all you will have to do is to:

1. Find required database.
2. Right-click on it.
3. Select “Tasks” -> “Back up”.
4. Set “Backup Type” to “Full”.
5. And follow the backup wizard steps.

Thanks.
