Audit Logs Location

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication provides logging of performed activities, such as data protection and disaster recovery tasks: for example, the list of files restored during File-Level Restore sessions. The results of the audit of such activities are stored in form of .csv files that are called audit logs. For more information about log files, see Logging.

    In Audit Logs Location field, you can specify folder where the audit logs will be stored. By default, log files are stored in the following folder: %ProgramData%\Veeam\Backup\Audit. You can also specify an SMB (CIFS) folder.

    If you use an SMB (CIFS) folder, the service account that is used for Veeam Backup Service on the machine with Veeam Backup & Replication must have access to that SMB (CIFS) folder. By default, this is the Local System account, so you will need to grant write access to the VBR Server Active Directory computer account.
