streaming backup

Hi,

     Is it posible to make a streaming backup of an user database with SnapManager for SQL?

Re: streaming backup

Hi ,

Streaming backup is initiated only for System databases by SMSQL . For user databases we use snapshots and copy only backup methods.

Regards,

Abhishek

Re: streaming backup

Then I'll use copy only backup method. Server is used only for SISS an has one user table for backup.

Thanks.

Re: streaming backup

If you place your user databases in the SAME volume as your system databases, SMSQL will stream backup the user databases to the SnapInfo LUN.....

Make sure you size the SnapInfo LUN accordingly.

Thanks,

Tom Hamilton

Re: streaming backup

Having the user databases on the same LUN as the system databases is an invalid layout (see http://media.netapp.com/documents/tr-3941.pdf for a great diagram of the proper layout).  The SMSQL Configuration Wizard provides a method to relocate databases, or you can relocate them yourself, but one way or the other you need to get to a supported/proper layout.
