Exporting and Importing Plug-in Settings

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


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"
