Considerations and Limitations

This section covers considerations and known limitations of Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SQL Server.



  • Transaction log backup requires at least one image-level backup of SQL Server. This means that the transaction log backup will not function after the full SQL Server restore is performed or for the newly appeared databases, until the first image-level VM backup is performed.
  • If both Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle Server are installed on the same VM, which processed by a job with the log backup enabled for both applications, Veeam Backup & Replication will back up only Oracle transaction logs. Microsoft SQL Server transaction logs will not be processed.
  • For the truncation of database transaction logs, make sure that Deny log on locally and Deny log on through Terminal Services are turned OFF for the account used for VM guest processing (these settings can be turned on, in particular, due to group policy).
  • Currently, point-in-time restore and restore to the state before selected transaction is not supported for replica VMs and for restore points created by backup copy job.
