This step-by-step article describes how to install Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Standard SP3 database and the most common SQL Server components between computers that are running SQL Server. You can follow this post to move database from SQL Express to SQL Standard too. The steps that are described in this article assume that you will not move the master, model, tempdb or msdb system databases. The steps provide different options for you to transfer logins and the most common components contained in the master and msdb databases. I like to use C: partition for SQL engine and D: partition to host database, temp files, log files and backup files (MDF and LDF). Here I need to deploy a SQL database for Veeam B&R 9 but it can be used for other applications.
In Veeam Backup & Replication v8 and v9 and higher the DBConfig Utility can be used to change the DB that Veeam is attempting to connect to, rather than editing the registr: Veeam Help Center.
For information about system requirements for Microsoft SQL with Veeam B&R , see the “Veeam User Guide” .
