It's been awhile, but are you

It's been awhile, but are you using the SAP BR*Tools to drive the backups from the client?  NetBackup only acts as the pipeline from the application/data to the storage (tape or disk).  I've never worked with Sybase, but this is how it worked for Oracle.  The brarchive has several options that will control how the transaction logs are controlled.

Normally for a DB, and you should consider SAP nothing more then a DB, the incrementals would be just the archive logs.  You can configure the full and archives in any combination you need to meet your companies requirments.

As for the scripts, I don't remember off the top of my head if I had to run a brarchive in conjunction with the brbackup, or if the brbackup did it for me.  Here are some sample scripts for UNIX and windows.  The full backup needs to get the current transaction logs or it's not complete.

The SAP help portal should also be able to give you some answers.

Good luck.

NBU Agent for SAP only works

NBU Agent for SAP only works with SAP Hana, SAP for Oracle and SAP for Maxdb.

You will need to use the NBU for Sybase agent.

I do not have answers to all of your questions, but the place I would look for answers is
