Would Clients Under an exchange dag have dags in their backups?

So in an effort to clean up our environment, we are trying to get our sla pushed to %97 and above. One of the issues is the clients that are part of the Exchange dag have no scheduled backups. My concern is that if I start backing up these clients, that they would be backing up the dags which is being backed up by our exchange backups that we are doing. Is the software smart enough to notice that the exchange client is part of an exchange cluster, and will not backup the dags which the exchange job is doing, or would i be double backing up dags if i started backing up the nodes as well?

Hi TP_Erickson,

 Wherever the backups are configured you can expect the backups to be counted as such. If you are already backing up the DB’s through the DAG client then yes, you would be double backing up the DB’s if you start backing them up through the nodes as well.
