  • If you have selected the Microsoft SQL authentication method, the utility will check the privileges of the account you have specified.

To ensure that these accounts (as well as the account under which the Veeam Backup Service is running) have sufficient privileges for database access, you can contact your database administrator. Refer to the list of system requirements for Veeam Backup & Replication for detailed information about required permission.
