About NetBackup for SharePoint Server

NetBackup for SharePoint extends the capabilities of NetBackup to include online backups and restores SharePoint Server. The NetBackup agent for Microsoft SharePoint Server is an optional, add-on component to the NetBackup for Windows client software. Because this product is tightly integrated with the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, this manual provides only an overview of NetBackup functionality. Backup operations and restore operations for SharePoint Server are identical to other NetBackup file operations, except where noted.

Microsoft SharePoint Server, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, or Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server may be abbreviated to either SharePoint Server or to SharePoint. Unless otherwise noted, the text implies SharePoint Foundation or Windows SharePoint Services when SharePoint is discussed.
