Netbackup SQL Differential Backups

Created: 24 Oct 2013 | 1 comment

Hi . I have created SQL Differential backups . Backups run successfully on the netbackup end. But SQL 2008 R2 Database properties shows last successful backup date for the Full backup and not Differential.

Netbackup restore using Microsoft SQL Server objects show both Full and differentials.

SQL Database is in simple recovery model.

Iam worried that the backups are not good.
