I need to backup a database using query.Please help me.
View Complete Post
In my C++ application (with MFC) developed in Visual Studio 2010 the user has an option to take a backup of the current database. This is done by executing a Stored Procedure which takes the database name and backup file name as parameters:
CREATE PROCEDURE sp2_backup_database @DATABASE nvarchar(100), @FILENAME nvarchar(260)
SET NOCOUNT ON
Exec ('Backup Database [' + @DATABASE + '] TO DISK = ''' + @FILENAME + '''
WITH COPY_ONLY, NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = ''' + @DATABASE +
'-Full Database Backup'', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STATS = 10')
All this works fine, the backup is done properly by the SP.
What is bothering me is that when trying to make a restore of the database from the backup file the restore fails with a message like (freely translated from Swedish):
"Restore failed for [the SQL Server]. (Microsoft.SqlServer.SmoExtended)
System.Data.SqlClien.SqlError: RESTORE can not process the database [Database-name] since it's in use by this process. It's recommended to use master database during this task."
The only way I can
I am using stsadm to run daily backup of the server, but would like to run hourly database backup, not sure if it works to restore database and log for sharepoint service 3.0, the db is on sql 2005 embedded edition. does any one know or has any suggestions
to backup WSS3.0 hourly?
I tried the backup restore feature in the admin site, didn't get it work when last time the server crashes, so right now only use stsadm backup / restore.
I've got a following problem: I have a VB 2005 application that uses SQL Server 2005 Express as DB engine. This application has it's own database stored in mdf file, e.g. invoices.mdf with corresponding log file.
I'd like to give users opportunity to backup and restore this DB file from this application (there won't be a system administrator, only end-users). Unfortunatelly after I connect to this database (using user instance of SQL Server), I'm unable to read or copy it, despite the fact, that I close all connections. And I'm sure that all connections are closed.
Database files become accessible for reading after I close the whole application.
I've tried to detach this database using sp_detach_db prcedure, butÃÂ it can'tÃÂ be done with database I'm connected to.
I will be grateful for any help.
Could you please explain when is it better to deploy (publish) a database with
Backup and Restore and when with the Generate and Publish Scripts Wizard?
As far as I understand Data-tier Applications in SQL Server 2008 R2 is a third option, isn't it? Are there more?
We have taken the backup of content database and restored it in the new server, after that attached the content database on sharepoint central admin, but few sites are missing after this. when checked the database server Number of records are matching in
both the servers content database and also the data is matching, but still we are missing few sites. Do we need to do any specific change in sharepoint or database?
When we failed to restore a backup from a BAK file for SQL Server 2008.
Then we find that the backup is created by using BACKUP xxxx COPY_ONLY parameter. When we attempt to restore from Management Studio (with the database changed to single user mode), we get the error message "There is NOTHING in the "Select
the backup sets to restore".
We would like to seek your advice on
1) Whether we can restore the database from Management Studio GUI ?
2) If not, can you suggest a SQL Script for the backup ?
Thanking you in anticipation.
How can backup and restore SQL Express 2008 database using c#.net
I have five databases sitting on a new SQL 2008 R2 server. The databases originated on SQL Server 7, went through both a SQL 2000 and a SQL 2005 upgrade, and last month were migrated to this new SQL 2008 server. All five databases are in SQL
2005 compatibility mode. All five databases are using SQL 2008's full database encryption.
Over the weekend, I changed the page verification of these databases from "torn page" to "checksum". Nightly full backups were completed on Sunday night, and successfully restored to our reporting and hot-standby servers. Yesterday, I added the
WITH CHECKSUM keyword to the backup jobs. Nightly full backups ran last night, completed successfully. The restores of those same backups to reporting and standby FAILED, with several assertion failure messages.
Today, I created a brand new database, in SQL 2008 compatibility mode and "checksum" page verification. BACKUP WITH CHECKSUM produces a restorable backup. I then enabled encryption on that database, and did the same BACKUP WITH CHECKSUM operation.
The resulting backup cannot be restored, NOT EVEN on the same server. The restore appears to complete, giving the normal output stating how many pages it processed, but the "recovery" portion of the restore throws an exception.
I am trying to restore a SQL Server 2005 database backup file.The size of the database backup is 5.51 GB.ÃÂ I specify theÃÂ ÃÂ source as a device and then provide the path of the .bak file and press OK i get the error as follows
TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio------------------------------
An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)
The media family on device 'G:\ITWeb DB Bkup\DB Bkup\New Bkup\WSS_Content_ITWEB.bak' is incorrectly formed. SQL Server cannot process this media family.RESTORE HEADERONLY is terminating abnormally. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 3241)
