If you create a shortcut to a SharePoint server farm as user-defined selection, it appears in the backup selections list. Any SharePoint server farms that publish to Backup Exec also appear in the backup selections list. If a farm that you want to back up does not display under the Microsoft SharePoint Server Farms node on the Backup Job Properties dialog box, you can manually add that farm to the list.
To add a SharePoint server farm to the backup selections list
In the Server farm name field, type a name for the farm or use the default name. The name you type here will display under the Microsoft SharePoint Server Farms node. Backup Exec lists the names of discovered Web servers in parentheses after the server farm name in the Selection tree.
When you create jobs to protect the SharePoint resources for the server farm, make backup selections from this server farm node. In addition, back up the default Microsoft SQL databases (master, model, msdb, pubs) for each Microsoft SQL instance that hosts SharePoint databases.
Please note that after a server farm is added to Microsoft SharePoint Server Farms, the SharePoint databases hosted on Microsoft SQL instances can no longer be selected for backup directly from the Microsoft SQL Server resource nodes.
If you change the SharePoint server farm topology after it has been added to Microsoft SharePoint Server Farms, you must browse the server farm node so that Backup Exec can recognize and save the changes.
