SQL Server recovery model?

Post by pufferdude »

We've noticed that Veeam does not truncate our SQL Server 2008R2 transaction logs. Since we don't need up-to-the-minute recovery capability on this database, would we be better off switching SQL server to "simple" recovery model, so that we don't have to worry about Veeam not truncating the logs correctly?

Would like to know how other SQL Server shops handle this.

Hello Jim, yes I would recommend switching SQL server to "simple" recovery model if you do not need to point-in-time recovery capability. Or you can wait for v5 later this month where we have added automatic transaction logs pruning option. Thanks!
