Hi Alt_smg,

The NetBackup policy type for backing up MaxDB when used with SAP is:  SAP

This is the same for both the database backup policy and redo log backup policy.


Re: MaxDB backup type.

Think you can only backup a MaxDB as a part of SAP, so the policy type should be SAP.

See the SAP admin guide for more info about setting backup of a MaxDB as a part of SAP.

The standard questions: Have you checked: 1) What has changed. 2) The manual 3) If there are any tech notes or VOX posts regarding the issue

You need to purchase the license key.

NETBACKUP SAP AGENT is sold separately -  not included in Application and Database license.

Speak to your local Veritas reseller.
