The logging level needs to be changed.


Logging detail level is changed by altering the value data of the DWORD ‘LoggingLevel’ on the Veeam server in the registry

Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
Value: LoggingLevel
Type: DWORD (32-bit) Value (REG_DWORD)
Data: 4

This value can be set from 1 to 6.
Logging level:

  • Logging level: [1 (LowDetailed)]
  • Logging level: [2 (BelowNormal)]
  • Logging level: [3 (Normal)]
  • Logging level: [4 (AboveNormal)]*
  • Logging level: [5 (HighDetailed)]
  • Logging level: [6 (UltimateDetailed)]

*The value of 4 for the LoggingLevel DWORD is the default setting.

Version 8.x and earlier: After changing the value, the Veeam Backup Service must be restarted. Make sure no jobs or restores are running before restarting this service. 
Version 9.x: The Veeam Backup Service periodically rescans the registry. The logging level will adjust automatically after no more than 15 minutes.
