Re: SD 4.5 backup

SD is having it's own backup mechanism. You have execute the '$SD_SERVER_HOME/bin/sd_dbconfwizard -internal' from a command/DOS window. This will bring up a GUI, which is self explanatory. However, thsi method is not recommended for backing up production databases.

You can use the SQL server backup mechanisms to backup the SD database.

hi!

The best way is to take the back of the database.

You can use the SQL itself for the same and move the backup file to another location/DLT.

Hi!
You can sechedule the back up job, so that it get automated for everyday/week or anyway you want.

Doing a re-store of the back up once in a month or once in 6 months is also a greate idea. so that, there won't be any surprices when there is an issue.

Bye,

Ashly

Ps: thanks for any point ;)
