Exporting and Importing Plug-in Settings

You can export a Veeam Plug-in configuration file and apply the plug-in settings to other servers.

Important

The password included in the configuration file is encrypted. Thus, after you import the configuration file, you must set the credentials manually in the Veeam Plug-in configuration wizard or using the MSSQLConfigTool.exe command-line tool.

To export the configuration file to another server, do the following:

  1. On the server where Veeam Plug-in is installed, navigate to the %PROGRAMFILES%\Veeam\Plugins\Microsoft SQL\ folder.
  2. Copy the veeam_config.xml file to the server where you want to configure the plug-in.
  3. Install Veeam Plug-in on the new server and place the copied XML file in the %PROGRAMFILES%\Veeam\Plugins\Microsoft SQL\ folder.
  4. Set new credentials to connect to the Veeam Backup & Replication server using the following command:

C:\Program Files\Veeam\Plugins\Microsoft SQL\MSSQLConfigTool.exe --set-credentials "serv\username" "password"
