At the Guest Processing step of the wizard, you can enable the following settings for VM guest OS processing:
|▪||Application-aware image processing for a transactionally consistent backup|
|▪||Transaction log handling for Microsoft SQL|
|▪||Use of pre-freeze and post-thaw scripts|
To coordinate application-aware processing and indexing activities, Veeam Backup & Replication injects a runtime process in the VM. The process is run only during VM guest OS quiescence and indexing procedures and is stopped immediately after the processing is finished (depending on the selected option, during the backup job or after the backup job completes).
You must specify a user account that will be used to connect to the VM guest OS and inject the runtime process:
|1.||In the Guest OS credentials section, specify credentials for a user account with local administrator privileges on the VM guest OS. If you have not set up credentials beforehand, click the Manage accounts link or click Add on the right to add necessary credentials. To learn more, see Managing Credentials.|
|2.||By default, Veeam Backup & Replication uses the same credentials for all VMs added to the job. If some VM requires a different user account, click Credentials and enter custom credentials for the necessary VM.|
|3.||To check if you have provided correct credentials, click Test Now. Veeam Backup & Replication will use the specified credentials to connect to all VMs in the list.|
If you back up a Microsoft SQL VM and want Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server to automatically identify Microsoft SQL databases in the created backup, the user account that you specify for this VM must have the sysadmin privileges on the Microsoft SQL Server.
