Purpose

The VBRCatalog folder needs to be moved.

Solution

VBRCatalog Location Requirements
  • The VBRCatalog folder must be at the root of a given drive letter.
    Example: C:\VBRCatalog\ or D:\VBRCatalog\

  • If the original location of the VBRCatalog is missing, create a new VBRCatalog folder in the root of an available drive, and skip Step 3 below.

The following steps are to be performed on the server where Veeam Backup & Replication is installed.

  1. Make sure all jobs are stopped and disabled.
  2. Stop all Veeam services
    (PowerShell Example Below)
Get-Service Veeam* | Stop-Service
  1. Move the VBRCatalog folder to the new location.1
  2. Recreate the Share
    1. Open Computer Management
    2. Navigate to [System Tools] > [Shared Folders] > [Shares]
    3. From Menu select [Action] > [New Share...]
    4. Select the new folder path to where the VBRCatalog was moved
    5. On the next page of the wizard name the share VBRCatalog
    6. On "Shared Folder Permissions" page select [Customize permissions]
    7. Remove "Everyone"
    8. Add "Administrators"
      Note: the Location selected when specifying Administrators must be the Veeam Server, not the domain.
    9. The Permissions should now list Adminsitrators with only Read Allow permission.
    10. Press OK, and Finish (twice) to complete recreation of the share.
  3. Change the location in the registry.
    1. Open Regedit
    2. Navigate to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup Catalog
    3. Find the REG_SZ entry named CatalogPath
    4. Change the Value data to match the new VBR catalog location.
  4. Start all Veeam services
    (PowerShell Example Below)
Get-Service Veeam* | Start-Service
1 If the VBRCatalog folder is missing or was deleted, create a new folder named "VBRCatalog" in the desired new location.
