I watched the Veeam Explorer for SharePoint webinar that is posted on Veeam. Now this webincar was created before v7 was fully released and displayed the beta. Now AFAIK I have heard it is possible to recover SharePoint files even if the SQL/DB isn't on the FE server directly as was required in the beta, including mounting the VM files and pointing to the SharePoint DB. I have read this requires a "staging SQL DB", and that express version of MS SQL can only support 10 GIG DB files. AFAIK Veeam uses express for itself for something, I never read that technical into the details, but could this instance of SQL be used for SharePoint recovery?
Question is I can't find a tutorial or video, on how to do this when the SQL server is not on the front end server. Could someone help point me in the right direction?
I need help on this as currently my SQL server is physical, however even once we move to virtualizing SQL it'll still be on a different server than the SharePoint Front-End server.
Thanks hope to hear from you guys!
