800xa ver.6 servers with 2012 R2 backup
I have made disk images for servers with . But I am thinking about doing backups with Windows server backup software. By default it’s not installed and I wonder could installation have any impact on 800xa system.
I need your opinion is it worth to do or it just waste of time.

Important: Only perform cold disk imaging (i.e. with application, preferably also the operating system shut down or started from an alternate boot media) - at a very least, perform backup after performing a "Maintenance Stop" from the System 800xA Configuration Wizard. This will not stop databases like Oracle and restore will probably give positive result (unless Oracle, etc. was brought down manually, before backing up).
