I have some question regarding how I should make our backup routine for my company, now that we are virtualising our servers using ESXi.
Some of them have been changed from Windows 2003 to 2008 and our database has also been upgraded from MS SQL 2005 to 2008.
In our network we have two domains, where each domain consists of one DC and one file/application server.
Both DC is still running Windows 2003 and are not planned to be upgraded.
With the new setup, we have bought a NAS with 2 HDD in RAID 1 (mirror) as our new file server.
In the old setup we used windows own backup program to make a backup of the filesystem to a USB disk.
Databases had their backup created in MS SQL using its own backup job.
I have looked the the MS DPM, but as far as I can see it does not support USB or other removable device.
My specific question is whether I should use a backup setup similar to the existing configuration?
I found a command called wbadmin, is this something I should look into?
Any response is highly appreciated.
Thanks for reading it to the end.
