I had issues getting the damned thing to take a hotbackup. I was unwilling to enable the Volume Shadow Copy on my client's host that I believe is needed for hot MSSQL backups using bacula.
Today, I try for OS-level, or an internal MSSQL export of the MSSQL db(s) and let bacula backup that dump outside of the MSSQL instance|data directory.
