Backup Exec 2012 backup through SAN (Exchange database, SQL Server)
We have the following environment,
- 2 DL380p Gen8 Servers running vmware Esxi 5.0
- 1 HP Storage P2000
- 2 SN6000 switches
- LTO 6250 FC autoloader
- DL 360p gen8 server (running backup exec 2012 media server)
On the Esxi we have Exchange 2010 server virtual machine and accounts server virtual machine running SQL 2012, future there will be HR server. Our aim is to backup database for Exchange 2010 so that the transaction logs are truncated, we want to take backup of SQL databse for accounts server.
Virtual machines have vmdk files assigned to them. We don't want to go from LAN for backup and willing to acquire through SAN. Please note we want to backup selected data from virtual machines and not intrested in taking image of virtual machine.
Is this possible that we take database backup for exchange 2010 and flushing its logs and for SQL server database for accounts server without going to LAN but through SAN and when backup exec is installed on physical server which is connected to SAN switches SN 6000 as mentioned in above hardware description.
Before responding if additional information of environment is needed please let me know OR if anything is unclear.
