I want to use VEEAM free edition in order to make ad hoc backups of a HyperV VM running Windows 2012 w/ SQL server 2012 - but without having VEEAM truncating the log files!
With VEEAM-Zip I cannot see any option like "copy only" like in the full version.
What would you suggest instead?
Should I stop SQL Server before the backup is started? Would VEEAM-Zip leave the SQL logs untouched?
OR should I rather take the backup with the VM cold? In this case I believe the logs will be left alone.....
