EV with Centera - do vaultstores need to go into backup mode when tape backups of app/index/SQL are running?
This is a follow on from:
We have replicated Centeras, so do I still need to put the vaultstores into backup mode while tape backups are running? I know I have to do this for indexes., why the vaultstores if I have Centeras?
The "Symantec Enterprise Vault and EMC Storage Applied Best Practices" doco says "when archiving to EMC Centera, as opposed to any other storage device, it is not required to back up the vault store partitions."
The Centera is replicated, there are no tape backups so we can't restore from a point of time to it.
If I lose Exchange, or SQL, what advantage is there if the vault stores were in read only mode when tape backups of the EV servers were running?
