Database backup on Sql Client Machine

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
Hi there, I am using SQL server 2008 and I need to take a back up of my database on the local client machine instead of the server. I understand that the back up wizard lists only the server machine's drives and directories. Is there any way to create the back up on my local client machine instead of server. Thanks & Regards, Hari.

How to create SQL Database Backup on a remote machine through Backup Class provided by C#?


I need to take SQL database backup on a remote machine through C#. I am using Backup Class provided by Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo namespace.

When I call SqlBackup function of Backup Class I get the following error:

Cannot open backup device '\\WKS-123\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Backup\CalDBServer.bak'. Operating system error 53(The network path was not found.).
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

I have already shared folder \\WKS-123\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Backup\ with "Full Control" permissions.

Please let me know if anybody has any idea regarding the error.





SQL and Outlook: Enable Database Access and Updates Through Exchange and Any E-mail Client


Using Microsoft technologies, you can insert, edit, query, and delete database entries using any e-mail client such as Hotmail, Outlook, Yahoo, or even WAP phone. While e-mail is certainly a powerful and widely used tool, it is usually not integrated with an application for performing any tasks other than sending reminders. The application scenario described here, an e-mail-based SQL update program, uses a simple data model; however, this solution will apply to any data model that you are working with. It will also eliminate the need for complex n-tier Internet applications and serves as a low maintenance solution for providing data access.

SQL2008 - Cannot Restore a new database from a full backup of a different one, database in use

I am trying to restore a brand new database from a copy of another one and am encountering an error message stating: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: The file <Backup source database file location> cannot be overwritten.  It is being used by database <Backup Source Database>. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo) I am running the Restore procedure with the REPLACE option and am wondering why it is stating that the source database is the database in use when I am trying to restore and overwrite a completely different database. This issue happens when running the replace both in C# using SMO and when manually restoring with SqlServer Management Studio Interesting note is, the original source database is created / deployed using a database project within VisualStudios 2010 and then deployed to SqlServer through VisualStudios. Any thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance for any help!

Facing MSDTC related issues while archiving data from one database server machine to another databas

I have a question with respect to distributed transactions when carried out between two database server machines on the same network.   Consider there are two database server machines \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ and \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\. Now we have to archive the data from one database server to other database server.   Let us suppose the database server \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ is the live production database server and \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\ is Long term storage database server. Now data from \SOURCE_DATABASE_SERVER\ needs to be archived into the database server \DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\.   So I have written a dynamic stored procedure which includes distributed transaction (begin Tran, commit Tran, rollback            Tran) coding in it.   Now initially when I executed the procedure, it gave some of the following errors   1) OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "\DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\" returned message "The partner transaction manager has disabled its support for remote/network transactions.". Msg 7391, Level 16, State 2, Line 1 The operation could not be performed because OLE DB provider "SQLNCLI" for linked server "\DESTINATION_DATABASE_SERVER\" was unable to begin a distributed transaction.

connect client certificate to an account in a membership database

Hello I have created a web service that authenticates with username and password, works fine.Basically this one, http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff649647.aspxNow I also want to connect to this web service using client certificates, works finehttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc948997.aspx But I would like to when authenticated via client certificates, connect that certificate to a user in the membership database.So that I can use Roles.IsUserInRole(...) and such.I thought that, well if I implement a Custom certificate Validatorhttp://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms733806.aspxthen I could check for example subject and map that against a created username in the membership database.But in the class X509CertificateValidatorpublic override void Validate(X509Certificate2 certificate)I don't have the same ability as when the user is authenticatedlike  void OnAuthenticateRequest(object source, EventArgs eventArgs)HttpApplication app = (HttpApplication)source;Basically how can I do this app.Context.User = new GenericPrincipal(new GenericIdentity(username, "Membership Provider"),roles);withinpublic override void Validate(X509Certificate2 certificate)and if that is not possible, can this be solved differently?Bottom line, how do I connect a client certificate to a user account in the membership database. Is there a MSDN article

I have created a small wcf project that comprises the following  TZ_PI_Interface_WCF - This is a WCF service hosted in IIS  TZ_PI_Interface_Client - This is a test client The service is running in as much that my client communicates with it and executes code in the service. My client app executes the GetProcessData_GetSearch_Client_Detail of my service.  This method should go off to a database and return some data to the client.
