  2. Select your Cloud Connect server and click Download Logs
  3. Select the time period for which you would like logs collected, then click OK
Once the relevant logs have been downloaded, upload the exported archive to your case via the customer portal or via the FTP listed on your case. In the case of uploading via FTP, please notify the engineer assigned to your case once the upload is complete.

More Information

Alternatively, you may manually collect client or Cloud connect management agent logs from the following location on the managed machine:
 
C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Veeam Availability Console\Log\Agent
 
This directory is the same for both the client agent and the Cloud Connect agent, however, the log files themselves differ. The engineer assigned to your case will inform you of which agent logs are needed for troubleshooting.

Please be aware that we’re making changes which will restrict access to product updates for users without an active contract.
