Performing a SAP HANA Multitenant Database Container Backup

You can perform a full, incremental, or differential backup on a system or tenant database.

Select the subclient that is associated with the database backup set.

When the Commvault software performs the backup, the software uses the SYSTEMDB database credentials to connect to the system or tenant databases.

Best Practice: Use the backup prefix to uniquely identify a backup.

Note: You must have SAP HANA SPS 10 or higher in order to perform an incremental or differential backup.
