Veeam server rename


Sometimes it happens that you need to rename server where Veeam server is already installed. When you rename server you won’t be able to login into this server. You get following error:

Failed to connect to Veeam Backup & Replication server:

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it IP address.


You have to change server name to new new in registry:

  • open cmd and type regedit
  • go to registry \HKLM\Software\VeeaM\Veeam Backup and Replication and look for REG_SZ value called SqlServerName. Change it to new server’s name.
  • go to registry \HKLM\Software\VeeaM\Veeam Backup Catalog\ and look for REG_SZ value called CatalogSharedFolderPath. Fix it to point to new server’s name share.
  • restart whole server and you are all ready 🙂
