Move to SQL 2008 and backups
We have recently had sims moved to sql2008. I currently use backup exec 12 on a backup server with agents across the servers. I currently now can't backup the full instance of Sims under sql2008, I think i'll have to move to backup exec 12.5 for sql2008 support? Currently I have set maintence plans to do a daily DB backup run, I then backup this folder to the backup exec every night. What are peoples opinions on this is it worth moving up a version of backup exec to backup the full instance or am i covered with the current backing up of the .bak files and logs created through the sql management studio?
