Logging

Veeam Backup & Replication provides detailed logging of performed activities data protection and disaster recovery tasks.

On the backup server, log files are stored in the following folder: %ProgramData%\Veeam\Backup. Veeam Backup & Replication keeps a separate log file for each of its components: Veeam Shell, Veeam Backup Service, Veeam Guest Catalog Service, Veeam vPower NFS Service, Veeam Installer, Veeam Data Mover and performed jobs.

In addition to logs stored on the backup server, log files are also stored on all servers added to the backup infrastructure:

  • On Linux servers, logs are stored in the following directory: /var/log/VeeamBackup/ or /tmp/VeeamBackup
  • On Microsoft Windows servers and Hyper‑V hosts, logs are stored in the following directory: %ProgramData%\Veeam\Backup

You can collect log files from the backup server and servers managed by Veeam Backup & Replication using the Export Logs wizard.

Logging Tip:

You can change default log files settings. For more information, see this Veeam KB article.
