We are in the process of preparing our Backup Exec 2010 R3 for the upgrade to 2012. Currently we have a single policy and selection list to backup all of the SQL instances and databases on all of our SQL servers. We also have independent policys and selection lists for each of our servers. From what I have read about Backup Exec 2012 the SQL backup job we have will not be compatible with Backup Exec 2012 and that SQL will have to be backed up in the same policy as the server that SQL is installed on. My question is, what is the best practice or recommended policy settings and configuration for backing up our SQL servers in Backup Exec 2010 in preparation for the upgrade to Backup Exec 2012?
