Backups can be started in the Enterprise Manager, or the DB Administration Planning Calendar.
· For backups that have to be scheduled periodically, in accordance with a predefined backup strategy, SAP recommends the use of the Planning Calendar. For more information, see Backing Up with the SAP System.
· For individual backups that are not planned and may be necessary in exceptional situations, use the Enterprise Manager. For more information, see Backing Up with the Enterprise Manager.
