Using NetBackup for SQL Server

After completing the installation and configuration, you can use the NetBackup Administration Console to start SQL Server backups or use the NetBackup for SQL Server interface to initiate backups and restores.

This chapter describes how to perform user-directed operations for SQL Server on a Windows client. You can initiate NetBackup operations using the command line interface program, dbbackex, or the NetBackup for SQL Server interface.

Using dbbackex

Execute dbbackex from a Windows MS-DOS with the following command:

install_path\NetBackup\bin\dbbackex -f file [-p policy][-u userid][-pw password] [-s server][-np]

Refer to the descriptioin of the following parameters.

file

is the name of the batch file, which describes the operations you

wish to start. See “Running batch files” on page 114.

policy

is the MS-SQL-Server type policy, used by NetBackup for the operations specified in the batch file.

This parameter is ignored for restore operations as the NetBackup server can retrieve the dump file based entirely on the image names specified in the batch file for each restore. Policy is used for backing up databases. If it is omitted, then NetBackup server uses the first active SQL Server policy that it finds in its policy list for carrying out all of the backup operations specified in the batch file.
