Hi there. Want to just throw this out there before I actually try it out so I understand how the process works.
Veeam server is 9.5 + SP1 has SQL 2012 Express (Limited to 10GB db)
Protected VM has SQL server 2008 (Full edition) + Windows 2008 R2
1. If I do a point in time recovery using the full edition of SQL on the remote VM, will the Veeam software need to copy the DB files temporarily location IE 'C:\VeeamFLR' on the remote server its restoring to? Or will it just copy the files to the destination drive of my choosing and mount the database ?
2. When doing a SQL restore using 'Restore to current restore point' I assume it will just copy the database files to the destination drive of my choosing on the protected machine and not need to use the full edition of SQL to accomplish this. After the file copy is done it will mount the DB.
3. What method is used for copying this data? I read somewhere that it was an iSCSI connection to the Protected machine
