New features

New features in Plug‑in for SQL Server 11.2:

Added support for SQL Server® 2016 with Windows Server 2012 and 2012 R2. (31911)
Added a new Plug-in backup option- Use multiple snapshots to limit demands on system resources: Use this option with the VSS Backup Method to indicate the plug-in to group the databases in batches and take snapshots of the batches rather than a single snapshot including all the databases. Hence, the amount of system resources used by the VSS sub-system is limited preventing exhaustion when large amount of databases are included in the backup job. (29319)


Improved entries in NetVault Backup binary logs so that Full File and Filegroup backups indicate which files and filegroups are backed up.


Added an InstanceConfig option to the Actions list to accommodate use of the plug-in with previous versions of NetVault Backup Server. This option is available if the All Instances node is selected. This option is similar to the Configure option; however, this option lets you specify the exact name of an instance and does not require specific credentials.


For certain activities on Windows, it is necessary to impersonate a member of Administrators group on the client (s).

Added an option DomainAdmin to the Actions list when the "Plug‑in for SQL Server" node is selected. The 'Domain Administrator Account for Service Exploration' dialog box allows you to enter 'User Name', 'Password', and 'Domain'.
