When WFE or Index server is backed up, is SDU necessary?

Isn't the necessity in SDW if neither the Index data nor IIS setting are backed up?

Hi Masaru-san,

Not sure what do you mean by SDU - probably not SnapDrive for UNIX?

This is a very good doc explaining SMMOSS 5.0 workflow:

https://fieldportal.netapp.com/ci_getfile.asp?method=1&uid=7178&docid=24326

Comments below slide 25 describe in detail a process of backing up Search Indexes. Basically SharePoint services get paused (hence the need for an agent), LUN with indexes is snapped via SDW & then SharePoint services are restarted.

Regards,

Radek
