  1. Enable SQL database backup in MARS

    Enable SQL database backup in MARS.

    We would like to use MARS also to backup SQL databases.
    Now we have to use DPM/MABS and that is overkill for only the backup.

    We have around 180 servers with SQL databases spread over the world. And installing DPM on all these sites is overkill.

    So we like to have the option to use MARS also for SQL database backup.
