 All good info, thanks !!!

We use the GUI Agent. We have SQL DBA's but I prefer online backups.
Tough, reliable, proven.

And to get the SQL DBA to fully understand how the process works, they need to 
be involved and make them aware.

Saves dumping to disk as alot of our DB's are large.

We use the MS-SQL Client here. We don't really have dedicated SQL DBAs, we have 
windows admins with sql training and Oracle DBAs who would rather manage 
Oracle. The text files offer simple configuration, and restores are a breeze 
with the GUI. I guess for the limited amount of MS-SQL we do here it fits the 
bill. As everyone else says, if we had a dedicated SQL DBA I'm sure he/she 
would rather do their own thing.

We don't use it either.

SQL admins setup the backups to go to disk - all are to occur at the same time 
on all the servers Then I have a policy to backup the SQL servers that kicks 
off at 2 am.
This gets the server Plus the backups to disk that occurred earlier in the 
night.

Now the SQL admins get to be in charge of backups AND restores (meaning I don't 
have to be involved) unless they need a copy older then what they have on disk.
As they keep more the one copy on disk.  I think I have only done a restore 
once for them.

Kind of depends on your DBA's  [Wink] At a previous position, all of the DBA's 
(Oracle, SQL and Informix) hated the idea of anything communicating with their 
database that they had no control over (that and they were cheap).

We worked with the SQL DBA to make use of user directed backups.  He basically 
wrote a script to dump the data out of the SQL database and then call bpbackup 
with the appropriate arguments to get the data from local disk to tape.  Yes, 
there are lots of admin headaches with this but it worked well enough for our 
purposes.  He would only complain about twice a month about tape drive 
contention and such.

Let me know if you would like more details on how to setup the policy and what 
command line arguments we used.
