Backup Exec 2012 SQL Transaction Log Backups

By | March 27, 2012


Just upgraded to BE2012 and I am now getting these errors.


V-79-40960-37936 - The SharePoint database ShareWebDb is configured to maintain transaction logs. The SharePoint Agent does not support transaction log backups. Configure the database to use the simple recovery model using SQL Server Management Studio. Once you change the recovery model, you must run a full backup of the database before you can successfully run an incremental or a differential backup.


I have seen a previous article that Exchange Transaction logs are automatically taken care of with a full backup. Is there a similar option for SQL and Sharepoint Databases?


If not (as the message kinda implies) what would be a recommended alternative without changing database to simple recovery mode?
