Backing up Sybase database Server using Veeam
Posted on 2014-09-30
We use Veeam (18.104.22.1681) to backup our VMware guests. Our main application server hosts a Sybase database (SQL Anywhere 11).
As far as I am aware SQL Anywhere 11 does not support Microsoft VSS (12 does..) and therefore when Veeam backs up the VM Guest the Sybase database is in a inconsistent state.
I am thinking that I could possibly run a pre-job Veeam script to backup the database using the SQL anywhere 11 native tools and then backup the server (including the backed up database). However, I do not know how to write such script.
Has anyone had similar issues and how can I resolve this?
