Backup Exec 2010 and Microsoft SQL

Hello,

Let me start by saying i do not know alot about databases and what should and shouldnt be backed up, thus brings me to my question. Backup exec backs up the server and the Microsoft SQL but when it completes i have the following exception:
V-79-40960-37914 - Database Prod_Vault is configured to maintain transaction logs.  Transaction log backups are not being performed.  This will result in the log growing to fill all available disk space.  Regular log backups should be scheduled or the database should be changed to the simple recovery mode.

So should i change to simple recovery mode? If so what changes and what does it effect if anything?
or
Should i setup a backup to backup this log file as well? Will that take the exception away? Does this transaction log need to be backed up?

Backup Server
Windows Server 2003 x64
Backup Exec 2010

Server Backedup
Server 2008 x64
Microsoft SQL 2008

I would like to say thanks in advance for any help in this situation.

Rick

Hi RickG,

       So if your database is set to FULL or BULK-LOGGED now then you must backup the transaction log regularly (everyone is different you may want it backed up every 5 minutes or every evening or on some different schedule).  FULL recovery mode is better - by all standards, though it does require a little more administrative overhead as you are discovering.  So, before changing the recovery mode to Simple, I would try to find out what your tolerance for data loss.  Your likely solution will be to create a log backup for the database in question.  I don't know much about Symantec's product, but you can find some help here most likely:

This is your specific error number in the Symantec support forum.

Hope that helps
