SAP backup + NAS Snapshot

This issue has been solved. See solution.


I need to know if it is possible define a SAP policy with NAS Snapshot support on a Suse Server.

I read From the snapshot client admin guide:

Snapshots of NAS host data are supported for NetBackup clients running Windows (32-bit system and 64-bit system) and Solaris.

Maybe someone was able to configure this kind of backup? Why Linux systems have no support for it?

Thank you very much!

You can not do that...

B'coz SAP policy is application level (database) backup & NAS snapshot is NDMP method hence you can not mix this two things.

If this post has helped you, please vote or mark as solution.

Before break-up, make sure you have a good backup.....  ;-)

You may want to double-check Snapshot Client Compatibility Guide.

Document consists of 1933 pages and is quite difficult to read.

If I look at NetApp FAS section (starting on p. 511), it seems just about all EXCEPT Suse is supported....
