Challenge

By default the path is: C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Endpoint\SqlLogBackup. In case if the default destanation should be changed, you can specify it in SqlTempLogPath(STRING) registry key.

Solution

Important: the key should be created on the Veeam Agent for Windows machine!

SqlTempLogPath
KEY: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
TYPE: REG_SZ
VALUE: path to desired location (should be without \ in the end)
