MS SQL AOAG Snaps - why is the MasterDB included automatically?


Hi there


Testing the use of Snapcenter to snap a Microsoft AOAG Database and mirror to a second site. I noticed when setting this up that SnapCenter always includes the MasterDB volume in the mirror'ed volumes on verification page when a secondary site server is used for verification even though the MasterDB was not selected for backup on the Resources page.


can anyone shed light on why it does this?


Thank you
