Backup approach for SAP on SQL Server



My customer likes to confirm backup approach for his SAP environment running on SQL Server.

He is going to use EMC Replication Manager to quiesce SQL server (enter online backup mode) and then take storage snapshot and then backup to tape.

His question is:

Replication Manager supports running some pre-script before quiesce SQL database. Does he need to do some scripting in SAP level to coordinate quiesce of SQL database? He doesn't know what should be in the script.

Someone told him that it's just fine to just quiesce SQL and backup. There is no need to do anything in SAP side for this online backup.

Thanks and Regards
