What I determined was that for incremental or transactional logging, the VBR job was breaking the SQL restore points - and making that process unusable. I changed my VBR job to NOT flush, but that didn't work. Since then, I'm utilizing the following process -
1. weekly full and rollup of server. that way I have a 'server' image for restores.
2. daily trans,incremental, and weekly sql backup processes. I process them locally on my sql box, but offload them them nightly.
This process provides my ability in SQL to use the Management tools for trans/incremental, and full backup restores for a week at a time.
Not to be 'long in the tooth' - but because of how the file is taken, via VBR, the only process of restore is to restore it as a 'flat' file, and use the SQL mgmt tools to import/create a new db. Kinda sucks and perhaps there's a better way - but I dont think so.
