Configuring Snapshot Client policies for NetBackup for SQL Server
This topic only covers what is necessary to configure snapshot backups for a MS-SQL-Server policy. For information on other policy attributes, creating schedules, adding clients, and adding backup selections, see the “Configuration” chapter earlier in this manual. For information on how a snapshot method is selected automatically and details on the types of snapshot methods, refer to the NetBackup Snapshot Client Administrator’s Guide.
Only one snapshot method can be configured per policy. If, for instance, you want to select one snapshot method for clients one group of clients and a different method for another group then you would need to create two policies for each group of clients and select one method for each policy.
