Step 3. Apply Connection Settings
Before proceeding, the utility validates the specified settings to make sure that the user account has enough privileges to access the database.
- If you have selected the Microsoft Windows authentication method, the utility will check the privileges of the current user account (that is, the account under which the utility is running) to connect to specified Microsoft SQL server.
- 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.
For the new settings to be applied, the utility needs to stop Veeam Backup & Replication services and jobs that are currently running. Before proceeding to the Apply step, you must confirm the operation. For example, if you are configuring Veeam Backup & Replication database settings, the following prompt will be displayed.
Confirm the operation by clicking Yes and wait for the services to be stopped. Then database connection settings will be applied, and you can view the operation progress in the log.
Wait for the operation to complete and click Next to proceed to the Summary step of the wizard. Previously stopped services will be started again at this moment.
