Backing up MSSQL database

Recommended Posts

I have timeclock software installed that uses MS SQL server. The company's support documentation says I need to stop SQL server before backing up, obviously not a very viable solution.

 

Can anyone point me to a script that I could use to stop and restart MS SQL server at a given time everyday so I can use Retrospect to backup these dbs?

 

Any other ideas/suggestions appreciated...

Retrospect for Mac can not backup an open MSSQL Database.

 

Retrospect for Windows includes an SQL backup add-on

I have a similar problem.

I am planning to buy a new software application that runs on a mysql database.

I know that i have to stop the mysql server, before the backup job starts.

Dantz retrospect 7.0 for windows, comes with some scripts examples, try to see the one to close/stop Lotus Domino Server service.
