Install VeeamOne on existing database

Veeam Logoby rereduck » Tue Nov 10, 2015 9:09 am

Hello,

I'm trying to install Veeam One on a fresh install physical Windows Server 2012 R2 (Raid 1 was dead :/ Next time I'll backup it with Veeam Endpoint ^^).

The SQL Database was on another server and when I'm trying to install it with "use existing instance of SQL Server" I have this error : "Specified database is not valid. Please choose Veeam ONE database or create new ..."

I'm tring to setup VeeamOne 8 1569 but my database is in 1669 (update2), it can be the problem ?

I'll contact support if you do not have any idea to help me.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Please do the following:

1. Create a new database on your SQL server

2. Install Veeam ONE on your current server and point it to your fresh new database during the installation.

3. Update Veeam ONE to a higher version then point your Veeam ONE to an old database.

Actually you can just point the installer to a SQL Server instance without pre-creating any databases. Veeam ONE setup will deploy a fresh database and after that follow steps 2-3 in Pavel's recommendation if you want to retain your database.
