MDF as valid RMSP recovery target

This question is not answered
Can a native MDF file be used as a target for analysis for recovery manager? Scenario would be that a native SQL MDF is restored by backup software, not a .BAK or .DIF, and that is what would be analyzed and used to restore the needed information to the original location. Thanks in advance! DalePratz

  • Hi Dale,

    Yes, MDF files are supported (http://documents.software.dell.com/DOC171892?ParentProduct=385): 

    • Unattached Database Files (*.mdf) can also be added into Recovery Manager and appear as a searchable backup. Import of unattached database files can even be automated via the command line to build an ad hoc integration with a SQL Server backup solution used in the environment.
