Veeam Backup service refuses to start

25 Feb

Veeam backup and replication service is not running

In my case I had renamed the computer from a default WIN234dfasd type name to a ‘much’ better alternative.

Veeam refers to the local computer name in a couple of registry entries and promptly stopped working – which we didn’t notice until later.

The keys are:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication\SqlServerName

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup Catalog\CatalogSharedFolderPath

Backup of the site’s Virtual Machines is now running again.
