Can anyone out there give me a definitve answer to the following question:

If I can do online SAP backups , is there anything that the offline can give
me in addition?

My concern is one of integrity of data: if online gives me the same as offline
, then I have no need to concern myself with offline backups. Put it another
way, what if anything does doing an offline give me over and above an online

(If its of any importance, Im running Solaris master 5.1 and a Windows cluster
running SAP XI).

Thanks and regards,Jim.
