1) Do a normal backup and ensure that SDR is on.  No additional agent licence is required.

2) If you schedule an Exchange backup job, the logs will be truncated.

3) The chapter in the Admin Guide on the SQL agent will tell you all you need to know.

Hi

 

1) How to perform a system snapshot(physical server) and then deploy it on a bare metal machine,need agent or else? For that you can look for prodcut called BESR --Backup Exec System Recovery for Bare Metal Restore option  ,Backup Exec 2012 support recovery to dismillar h/w with SDR backup but as like BESR it doesnot perform Volume based backup

Edited {Please check link for SDR http://www.symantec.com/docs/HOWTO74439 }

2) Exchange agent does it "cut" the log files or not.

With Backup Exec when you backup Exchange with Exchange agent yes end of full and Incremental backup it purge the transcation log.

3) SQL agent will be glad for any information.

Check the link below which describes best practisces for SQL agent

Hope that helps

Thanks
