New Data Protection for Microsoft SQL Server Version 7.1.1

SQL Comments Off on New Data Protection for Microsoft SQL Server Version 7.1.1
Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2014
You can now use Data Protection for SQL Server to manage SQL Server 2014 in stand-alone and failover cluster environments, and to protect your SQL Server 2014 databases.
Backup processing efficiencies and improvements
During backup processing, Data Protection for SQL Server bypasses database snapshots and databases that are in offline, mirroring, and restoring states. With this release, the databases that are bypassed during backup processing are indicated in the console output and in the tdpsql.log.
AES 256-bit encryption added as an available data encryption type
AES 256-bit encryption is available as a data encryption type with this release. AES-256 provides the most secure algorithm to encrypt data that is sent to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Previously supported AES-128 and DES-56 encryption remain as supported encryption types.
Checksum processing is available for legacy database backups
In the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), you can specify integrity checking for legacy database backups. On the command-line interface, you can set the SQLCHECKSum parameter with the set command to specify integrity checking for all legacy backups. You can override the global setting by issuing the SQLCHECKSum parameter on the backup command.
VERIFYOnly option is available for legacy database restore operations
You can verify whether a legacy database backup is valid without physically restoring the backup. Before you restore the legacy database backup, you can run the restore operation with the Verify Only option in the MMC. Alternatively, you can use the /VERIFYOnly option with the restore command on the command-line interface.
