what i have done and what never failed over
2 years:
- make backup by mssql-job
- put the name of the backup file on the
   veritas list to be put to tape (or elsewhere)
- you have to be sure that the mssql backup job is
   complete before teh veritas backup job starts.
   So put 1 or two hours between and have a look on
   the event viewer where mssql-backups ar logged with execution
   time. If you don't have to backup more than 1 or two gigabytes
   of db-data there should be no problem with execution time.

There is a veritas utility that you can buy for a few
1000 Euros that makes backups directly, but having not more than
2GB of db-data i think you can spare the money




1. Backup software for Netware (SQL Server v10)

I am looking for some software to automate the backup of our SQL Server in
a Novell 4.1 environment.  I have backup server running and our manually
initiated full and transactional backups work fine.  We've even used them
to recover a time or two.  I am looking for a solution for our new
production environment.  I would really like to find something that runs as
an NLM and automatically sends the appropriate commands to the SQL Server
to do the daily full backups and hourly transaction backups.  We have other
s/w to backup the disk files created by SQL scripts.

Someone at Sybase suggested using some function native to Novell to run the
ISQL nlm and passing it the names of appropriate pre-coded scripts.  This
would be fine however...anyone out there know how to do this in Novell?

Thanks for your help.
