Purpose

This KB article documents information that other users have found useful when configuring FILESTREAM and/or installing RBS APIs to work with Veeam Explorer for Microsoft SharePoint.

Solution

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Enable Filestream
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
The following process may be used to enable FILESTREAM on the Veeam Backup SQL Server: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc645923(v=sql.110).aspx
 
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Install RBS APIs
──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
Based on the documented process in the TechNet article below, the following process was found to be the easiest:

•First, create a temporary database on which RBS will be enabled, or have an existing one to enable RBS on.
 
•Second, instead of launching the RBS msi installer GUI, run the command-line below:
msiexec /qn /lvx* rbs_install_log.txt /i RBS-x64.msi TRUSTSERVERCERTIFICATE=true FILEGROUP=PRIMARY DBNAME="<Database> " DBINSTANCE="<SQL_Instance>”
 
Note: Correct the above command for the DB name, the instance name, and the RBS .msi file name.
 
Here is the source of the above process (section “Install the RBS client library on each web server”): http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff629463(v=office.15).aspx
 
If the steps outlined above do not resolve the issue as it relates to FILESTREAM or RBS APIs, it is advised to contact your Sharepoint/SQL administrator or Microsoft support.
