Challenge

The logging level needs to be changed.

Solution

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.
