SharePoint 2019 support with Veritas Backup Exec 21.1 is here now

Veritas Backup Exec 21.1 is now available with SharePoint 2019 support. With this feature, you will be able to backup and restore all SharePoint 2019 Server farm resources, including Web Applications and their associated databases. This also includes individual documents, pictures, sites, subsites, lists, configuration database, and service applications.

This support includes Agent-based and Virtual-based backups, which means you can protect both SharePoint 2019 on a physical server or a Virtual environment.

Backup Exec uses the SharePoint object model to perform individual items restore, which makes backup and restore much faster than the traditional approach used in SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013.

How do I backup a SharePoint farm

Couple of pre-requisites before taking a backup of Server Farm –

  1. Install Backup Exec remote agent on SharePoint front end web server, SQL server, and other servers involved in the SharePoint farm, in case of a distributed environment.
  2. Ensure that Server Farm entry is listed in the ‘Backup & Restore’ tab of Backup Exec UI.

Then, select the SharePoint resources that you want to backup.
