Enterprise Vault Backup using AVVI and Vault Agent
Hi Guys, I have EV 10.2 for Exchange and Im testing backups before deployment.
EV is running in a VM. Storage is combo of SAN and NAS.
We backup all VMs using the AVVI Agent via vCenter server.
At the top level I understand the following should be backed up for EV (correct me if Im wrong)
1. Backup EV using the EV agent which backs up the site, diretory db, fingerprint db, index's, vault store etc etc
2. Backup remaining SQL databases used by EV
3. Backup the system state and OS hosting EV
What I want to avoid in step 2 and 3 is any duplication of whats already been backed up in step 1.
Should I have two jobs?:
Job 1 - Backs up EV with the EV Agent.
Job 1 - Backs up everything else using the AVVI agent using SQL GRT with exclusions of items already backed up in Job 1
I was hoping the Remote Agent was smart enough to be able to do AVVI and EV Agent based backups in the one job but as there are no Vault "Application" settings for AVVI I guess this wouldnt be the case.
