I've got a software vendor supporting my client's primary application asking me if I'd like him to schedule maintenance plans to complete integrity and reindexing tasks on the SQL databases. I use Backup exec and I notice in the SQL backup job there is an option to run a "Consistency check" before and after the backup. There is also an option to include "indexes". Obviously this completes an integrity check, just seems to use "consistency" instead of integrity. But does including "indexes" with my Backup Exec Consistency check really reindex the database? Hopefully someone out there with more database and Backup Exec experience than I can answer. Otherwise I've got to run maintenance plans outside of the production and backup time windows. Yay.....! Thanks everyone.
