Until Data Manager version 19.9, if a database was in an unprotectable state (offline / recovery mode), its backup would fail. Starting with Data Manager version 19.10, you can exclude the unprotectable SQL databases from all backups.

For example, the following SQL Server has two online databases (database01 and database02) and one offline database (database03).
Select “Exclude Unprotectable Database” on the Protection > Protection Policies > Add Policy > Options page.
