Symantec Endpoint Netbackup VSS backup restore

Created: 27 Feb 2013 • Updated: 30 Apr 2013 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Good day all,

So we are using Netbackup to backup SEP database and I have no idea how Netbackup works. Im required to test vss backup restore and I need assistance regarding that.



-To test the restore do I need Netbackup to be installed on my test envoronment or I can restore via SQL Server Database restore??

Basically im trying to create a Lab envoronment where I can install SEPM ,SQL and be able to test this VSS backup.

A step-by-step documentation will appreciated


Thank you

VSS backup for SQL databse?

NetBackup is SQL db aware backup application. You can take all the possibility what sql itself offers. (full, differential , trx. logs file groups etc.)

Refer SQL admin guide to create .bch scripts for backup and restores


 Cheers !!!
