How to run an Offline Backup / Recovery of a SAP database with the Backup Exec SAP agent.
In order to perform an offline backup of the SAP database via the Backup Exec SAP agent the value "OFFLINE" respectively "OFFLINE_FORCE" needs to be specified.
This value needs to be specified depending on whether a SAP backup job is executed in either the init<SID>.sap file, in BRTOOLS itself or by adjusting a command line backup command.
In order to perform the restore operation via the SAP agent the database has to be OFFLINE.
Depending on the situation certain configuration files need to be restored first (for more details about these steps see the document mentioned under Related Documents)
