You can download Veeam Backup & Replication log files from client Veeam Backup & Replication servers without having to access the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
Log files are downloaded as a single ZIP archive. If you choose to download logs for more than one backup server, the archive will include a separate archive with log files for each chosen client backup server.
To perform this task, a user must have one of the following roles assigned: Service Provider Global Administrator, Service Provider Administrator, Service Provider Operator.
