Backing up Enterprise Vault 10.0.3 and 10.0.4 with Backup Exec
Backing up Enterprise Vault 10.0.3 and 10.0.4 with Backup Exec is not supported with the Agent for applications and databases.
However – there isn't too much work to set up a good backup job for this manually
The problems comes up if the customer has any other applications or databases that is supported by the agent that (s)he wants to back up.
The Agent for Applications and Databases is not connected with any computers, and only installed on the media server. So, let us imagine an environment with Active Directory, SQL, Exchange and Enterprise Vault and we have 3 licenses for applications and databases (because we want to do a manual backup (i.e. Without the use of an agent) of Enterprise Vault).
This is not possible by design, because Backup Exec recognizes that the environment holds some license for applications and databases.
You cannot possibly choose to backup the EV Store folders and indexes (grayed out).
SO – if a Symantec Customer with Enterprise Vault 10.0.3/10.0.4 makes use of Backup Exec 2012 – How are they supposed to protect their Enterprise Vault Environment?
