SQL Clone Image From Veeam Backups

We use Veeam to back up our SQL Server databases. In creating an Image for SQL Clone, there is an option to use backups instead of the live version. How do I use that option with Veeam

  • Hey @cxc256 I don't believe you can use a Veeam backup with SQL Clone - my understanding is it needs to be a SQL Server Native .bak (full/diffs) or a Redgate SQL Backup .sqb file 

    You can get around this by scripting the Veeam restore and then creating the image from the live DB copy and then dropping this temporary copy, which many people do anyway to test their backups so it's just 1 extra step potentially on top of an existing process.
