exclude sql server backup

Veeam Logoby ame » Tue May 17, 2016 6:23 am

Hi all,

we have our own special sql backup jobs running on our VMs - now we recognized that we are getting problems with our own jobs, when veeam does backup the machines. When we want to restore over sql server a database or whatever, we are getting error messages regarding "sql server cannot open backup device".

So my question is - can we exclude sql server while backing up the whole VM?

thanks and regards

Alexander, general recommendation if you are backing your SQL Server up using native tools, is setting the Veeam B&R backup job to "copy only" in the guest processing settings. Is that what you're after?
