Veeam B&R restore SQL items and Firewall

September 22, 2016 0 By Allan Kjaer

I have a customer with some SQL servers on a DMZ, that they need to restore databases to, and we looked at the documentation for which ports to open.

This is the documentation for Veeam B&R 9.0, and we found the ports and it worked fine, until we had to restore to an SQL instance not running on port 1433, after som investigation, and thru the information i have in this blog: saying that the SQL Browser service should be accessible. 

The customer returned to me that they found the solution, that UDP port 1434 also needs to be opened. this i not mentioned directly in the documentation, at the moment.

The link: they have in the documentation from Microsoft also tells that the SQL Browser Service is using UDP port 1434.
