Im planning out my disaster scenarios and realized a potential issue that I am not quite clear on how it would affect integrity.
We have an old sybase database, pre-vss.
If there is large transaction being committed to the database, and mid-transation veeam starts backing up. I assume the critical moment is the snapshot, which could technically split a transaction across the snapshot boundary. If there was to be a loss of the VM, and a recovery is required, what would happen? Since the DB is not VSS aware/capable, this started to become a concern for recovering a backup that might have been right in the middle of a database transaction. Even though Veeam is backing up at block level, the transaction to the database may not have been completed yet.
I realize this might not actually be a Veeam question, and probably a VMware or Sybase question, but I figured I would start here.
Thanks for any insight.
