    I have several SQL Servers and each with several non-system DBs. Is there any reason to back up the system databases (master, msdb) as well as the report server DBs (RerportServer$SQLEXPRESS, RerportServer$SQLEXPRESSTempDB)?

    System DBs usually contain backup/restore and other associated information depending on the user databases available, so if they need to DR the entire instance they'll want the system DBs as well. Usually the DBA will know if they want it or not. On CommVault's side we'll recommend backin gup everything.
