We have a SQL VM which is failing on its transaction log backups. The error it is throwing is as follows:
- Code: Select all
9/17/2015 9:33:22 AM :: Failed to prepare guest for SQL transaction log backup Details: Failed to execute VIX command: [Cannot start service. Machine: . Service: [VeeamLogShipper].
Cannot start service.
Win32 error:The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.
When I log into that VM and search the services, the SQLLogShipper service isn't installed on this VM. When I look at a working SQL VM, I find that service installed and running. My question is, how does that service get installed (and when)? Is there a way I can install that service manually without waiting for the next backup cycle, or a reboot, or anything? I just would like to get my TLogs working on this server as quickly as possible. I did find the service file on the Veeam server at c:\Program Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\Backup\VSS\sql\VeeamLogShipper.exe. Thanks
