I have VMWare backups working - Policy - ALL_LOCAL_DRIVES. Works well. vCentre - ESX servers - NBU
How do I do SQL backups if client software is not on servers?
Is there a tech note?
Go to Solution.
Nagalla is right.
NBU 7.1 still needs the agent to be installed in the VM in order to backup SQL.
Configure separate SQL agent backup.
NBU 7.5 can backup all-in-one with the VM backup method.

my understnding says.. needs to install client software and configure the DB agent..(i could be wrong)..
extracted form Netbackup for VmWare admin guide page 16
You need to install the client on the server if you want to backup sql databases.
