Hi All,

Can someone please advise on what is the replacement product for (Backup Exec 2012) agent for SAP or is it bundled along with other agents?

One of my customer purchase agent for SAP three years back and now it is due for renewal of support, what must be given?

Seems SAP is no longer supported.

See Backup Exec (tm) 2012 Software Compatibility List (SCL): 

Supporting Storage Foundation and VCS on Unix and Windows as well as NetBackup on Unix and Windows
Handy NBU Links

Marianne is right, although you can look at backing up the underlying Oracle/SQL database with the Agent for Applications and Databases.

I guess the reason for this dropped support is because SAP tend to be an enterprise application, and for enterprise backups, Symante have NBU.
