DOCUMENTATION: Which Microsoft SQL Server files can be skipped from a file system backup?

Problem

Which Microsoft SQL Server files can be skipped from a file system backup?

 

Solution

To prevent Windows file system backups on a Microsoft SQL Server from exiting with a NetBackup Status Code 1 (the requested operation was partially successful), it is necessary to create an exclude list for the MS-Windows policy to exclude the database files.  

The SQL database files have three different file extensions: .mdf, .ndf, .ldf.  When creating the exclude list, be sure to exclude these three file types from the file system backup policy.
