BE2010R3 - Simple Clarification Questions

Created: 05 Oct 2012 • Updated: 05 Oct 2012 | 4 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Just two questions I need clarified.

1.  Is Advanced Open File Option free or do I have to buy a license in order to use it?

2. MS SQL Agent: Does the term "filegroups" include data + transaction logs?  Trying to figure out if a "Differential - Back up database or filegroup changes only" includes the transaction logs.

Thanks!

Hi,

1. Yes it is free. No license attached.

2. Check pg. 1302 in the BE 2010 Admin Guide.

Thanks!

1. OMG! It's free?! Why didn't the previous admin use it then!? Oh boy...gotta redo my jobs now. :/

2. Pg 1302 of the BE 2010 Admin Guide that I have is about Troubleshooting the Oracle Agent.  Am I reading the right page?

Nope, in the BE 2010 R3 Admin Guide on the link below, I see Appendix J Symantec Backup Exec Agent for Microsoft SQL Server, and from pg. 1302 you will find what you are looking for.

Ooops. I was using the BE 2010 Admin Guide, not the R2/R3.  Even then, on page 1302, it doesn't mention filegroups, but re-reading the entire section about SQL Backups on this new guide, it constantly mentions database/filegroups together and log as a separate job.  So it sounds like filegroups does not include logs
