I have a VM with a vendor application that uses SQL Server Express database.  Does the CommVault SQL Server agent support backing up SQL Express databases?

Hi @COE-GT 


We certainly do, you can refer to: https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11/article?p=3002_3.htm which highights the versions of SQL we support (as of feature release 20).


I’d suggest ensuring that auto-close is disabled however otherwise you may encounter failures when we attempt to backup the databases.

Refer to: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/policy-based-management/set-the-auto-close-database-option-to-off?view=sql-server-ver15
