Our approach for now:
Wanting app consistent backups and a reliable copy of the entire VM image, we are actually shutting down the WIN2K VM
after business hours prior to backing it up with Veeam 4.1.X to get a good "Cold" backup.
During the day we do timed backups of it with BackUp Exec and the BE SQL Agent for 2K/SQL2K.
Option: Script it to pause the SQL server then backup with VMWare tools quiescence capability ? ? ?
Option: Script it to "Suspend" the entire VM for a "Warm" backup ? ? ?
Thoughts and opinions ?
Yes, yes, I know, behind the times, but hey, budget and actual business need drive new OS and RDBMS purchases
Thanks in advance -
