I have several servers running third party applications that apparently do a partial Microsoft SQL install. We use a locally developed backup program. The backup program uses a persistant volume shadow copy to back up the and then verify the data. By the time the verify runs, the .mdf files have changed and the verify fails.
I think the problem is that SQL Writer is not running. A Guide for SQL Server Backup Application Vendors
says to start the service, but the service is not listed.
How can I get the correct SQL Writer installed and running?
