    HI Praveen,

    SAP System can online while during Full system backup,But my personal experience backup is bit slow when SAP Application server is online compared to offline backup.

    Hi Praveen,

    Just online backing up including database datafile directories make no sense, you'd better exclude these.

    Do not need to close SAP application for application-idle hours.
