Backuping up Database

(imported topic written by prasadk23)

Hi,

How would the database be backed up and restored in case planning to migrate to a better performing hardware. Write up in the knowledge base offers little info on the same.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Prasad,

For the standard database backups, we just use the basic Microsoft SQL Server backup functionality (which is pretty straightforward).

If you are looking to migrate a BES Server, we have instructions at http://support.bigfix.com/cgi-bin/kbdirect.pl?id=133. Was this the KB article that you said did not contain the info you were looking for? If so, what is it missing for you?

Note that Migration steps 3&4 say “detach” and “attach” the database, but you can also do a backup and restore.
