We have Navision 3.70 with native database on 2003 R2 server (virtual machine). I am wondering if native db takes advantage of "application-aware" backup technology in today's backup solutions such as "Veeam Backup & Replication" or "Shadowprotect SPX". I ask because we are using Shadowprotect SPX which has application-aware backup for 2003 server, but Veeam does not (they dropped "app-aware backup" support for 2003 server in v10, latest version). We are considering moving to Veeam backup solution due to the many additional features it provides, but the question about app-aware backups for 2003 server may be a hard-stop if Navision 3.70 native database uses it. Note: Veeam can backup 2003 VM image no problem, just not app-aware.
I had previously assumed "application aware" backups applied to 3.70 native db (to quiesce the database and commit cache before the backup such as with Exchange Server and SQL server) but now I'm not sure. If app-aware backup does not apply to 3.70 native db, then it's a non-issue and we can move over to the Veeam product.
Any insight on the question "Does 3.70 native db use application-aware backup technology?" is appreciated. Thank you.
