Preparing Password File for MySQL Processing
You can use MySQL account credentials that are stored in the password file to connect Veeam Agent for Linux to the MySQL database system.
Consider the following:
If you want to use a password file for authentication, create a file. By default, Veeam Agent expects the password file to have the .my.cnf name and to be in the home directory of the root user. If the password file has a custom name or is stored in another directory, you can specify a custom path.
The password file must have the following contents:
- <username> — name of the account that Veeam Agent will use to connect to the MySQL database system.
- <password> — password of the account that Veeam Agent will use to connect to the MySQL database system.
