Veeam Logs

Post by darryl.crossley » Nov 16, 2012 2:38 am

Can anyone point to which Veeam log contains the information on transport mode selection?
I've got an issue with a VM failing over to NBD instead of using hot-add and want to track down why.

It all depends on which type of OS you’re using for your Veeam B&R server.

• Windows Server 2003: %allusersprofile%\Application Data\Veeam\Backup
• Windows Server 2008 and R2: %allusersprofile%\Veeam\Backup
• Linux servers: /var/log/VeeamBackup/

There must be a file (Job.Name of your Job.Type of you Job.log), in which you can see all information related to you job, including, of course, proxy transport method. Something like that:

Code: Select all

[14.11.2012 18:27:55] <01> Info     [ProxyDetector] Detected mode [nbd] for proxy [VMware Backup Proxy]
[14.11.2012 18:28:17] <01> Info     Using source proxy VMware Backup Proxy [nbd]\n

Jeremy, you can use the Help > Support Information menu command to export all the required logs to the specified location. Thanks.
