  • SQL Filestream data backup
    Posted: 11-23-2010, 8:53 AM

    Hello CommVault gurus:

    We are investigating the possiblity of implementing SQL Filestream data into our environment.   Since the Filestream feature of SQL Server 2008 uses a combination of the SQL db and the NTFS file system, keeping them in sync is imperative.  I was wondering if there is or will be a specific idata agent to backup this data.

    Good morning,


    We do support SQL 2008 Filestream types in galaxy 8.0. We have not seen any issues running backups and restores out of the box.

    Backing up for Filestream types however are not supported with use of the BUFFERCOUNT and MAXTRANSFERSIZE registry keys which are configurable in CommVault. We noticed issue during restore for Filestream types when using these registry keys.

    Thanks James,

    So the server file system idataagent can back up this data on the NTFS file system?  I just need to verify no additional agent or licesnse is required.  Thanks again.

    The SQL IDA will cover this.
