Configure Veeam job monitoring

On the page

Do you need help?

Monitoring a Veeam Job goes through several steps:

- Configure access to the Veeam database from the ServiceNavBox

- Putting the job under supervision

Supervision of the database

The entire procedure described here should be followed: Configure the supervision of an MS SQL Server database

In particular, fill in the /etc/freetds.conf file correctly;

To do this, connect to the box with Putty.

Once on the box, switch to the root account with the command :

sudo su -

Start editing the file

nano /etc/freetds.conf

Add at the bottom of the file the server connection elements

    host = @IP of the Veeam server
    port = TCP/IP port of the SQL instance on the SQL server (usually 1433)
    instance = name of the SQL instance on the SQL server
    tds version = 8.0

Exit the file by pressing ctrl + X , enter O and press enter

Test the connection with the following command:

telnet @IP of the Veeam server instance port (e.g.: telnet 1433)

If the connection is blocked, check your configuration and/or your firewall on the network and/or the windows firewall

Putting the job under supervision

We recommend to use the service template: Veeam-Job-Status

It should be set up like this:

Server Name: Value indicated between [ ] in the freetds.conf file

Supervisory account: Fill in the MSSQL account or use the legacy account

Database name: Specify the database name (different from the SQL instance name). Usually VeeamBackup

Indicate the analysis period: If the job runs every day, indicate 01d00h00m

Job name: Copy from Veeam

Backup type: Set the type, among those proposed in the contextual help (from ServiceNav version 4.1, this field is not mandatory anymore)
