    Hi,

    I would like to backup MSSQL database files with TSM Client but the operation system automatically exclude them. I tried and with VSS the TSM is able to backup the mdf and ldf files and they are consistent. (SQL VSS Writer supports it: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms175536.aspx)

    Does anybody know how can I remove the operating system exclusions for these files?

    Thanks your help!

    Using VSS is the correct way. Then the sql server will make sure you have a consisten copy. Using the ordinary TSM BA client will not use the SQL VSS writer. TDPSQL can use the SQL VSS writer to make backup. If you need to use the ba client, I think you need to detach the database first, to make sure no active connections exist. Then back it up, and reattach it again.

    My advise is to either use the TDP for SQL, or make use of the internal backup utility in SQL, and dump these files somewhere the BA client can grab them.
