I reverted to vCenter 5.1 (ESXi 5.1) and installed a fresh VM of Veeam Enterprise version 7 with today's Veeam patch 1. I have removed the jobs and vCenter server from Veeam, then added the Veeam service account to the SQL server's Local Administrator group to provide registry access as referenced in this post: Backup Veeam and vCenter on same server
I am receiving the VSS timeouts when backing up the vCenter/Veeam SQL server as in version 6.5. I am using a backup proxy also installed in a VM that utilizes the MS iSCSI Initiator combined with Equallogic HIT for MPIO. All other test backups are performing snappy save the vCenter/Veeam SQL server instance.
Are there any registry tweaks for Veeam version 7 for specifying the vCenter database location? I understand that I can add the standalone ESXi host but it will break vMotion of the SQL server, which I'd like to avoid. I have been reading that version 7 fixes the VSS issues, but I am not finding anything in the version 7 documentation as to how the fix was implemented
Thanks all. Version 7 is awesome- great work!
