Will 9.5 allow backup copy of DB logs?
No, unfortunately, it won't.

Ouch!
Having literally just this weekend completed migrating away from a SQL Cluster to a standalone SQL primarily to bring the SQL server into the scope of Veeam backups (simply because at the end of the day, an RTO of up to 15 minutes rather than seconds was actually sufficient for their needs), and getting ready to show them (the users) how amazing the restore options are as well as the far improved off-site copies will be (in comparison to their daily full DB backups which then went to tape which then went off-site some time the next day), I'm rather shocked to discover that off-site copies of TL backups can't (EASILY) be brought into scope as well without a load of workarounds!

Am just stumbling upon this thread and have to agree that this is a real bummer. Would really be a nice feature to have for us so I'm hoping it's under serious consideration for a future release.

I also hope this gets "fixed" in 10.0!

Is this T-Log restriction only for replicated SQL backup copies or all as SQL PIT log-based restores seem to work from the original copy quite well.

+1 this doesn't make 3-2-1 easy for SQL!

oh yes, we also have the wish that transaction logs are also included (or the possibility) in Backup to Tape Job - this would be a really nice feature :-)
