How to Export SQL Logs


Veeam Technical Support has identified that there may be a problem with backing up of the SQL server and/or truncation of the SQL logs. Veeam Technical Support would like to confirm what is configured in SQL and the events that occur during the backup by collecting the SQL logs using SQL Management Studio.



First open Microsoft SQL Management Studio, and login to the instance Veeam Backup and Replication is attempting to backup.
Once logged in, expand the [Management] folder in the tree view to the left, then expand [SQL Server Logs]
