Problem conclusion

  • For backup and restore tasks for Microsoft SQL Server, iSCSI
    Initiator service needs to be started. IBM Spectrum Protect
    Plus attempts to start Microsoft iSCSI initiator service
    if it is in a disabled state, and it changes the Startup Type
    to Automatic during the inventory job. This serves to return
    the iscsi initiator information and prepare for iscsi LUN
    used for backup and restore.
