Command line backup for SPS

  Asked By: Johnathan    Date: Mar 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 2137

I tried to take a back up of my SPS using command line but it is not responding at all (it neither gives an error nor shows any trace in task manager). Though I am able to take the back up using the GUI that gets invoked if in the command line I type only spsbackup (i.e., C:/>spsbackup).

I used the following line in my command prompt:

c:/> spsbackup /all /portal http://MySPSServer /service sitedbs /file c:\spsbackup\backup /overwrite

Has anybody tried to get a backup using this pure command line SPSBACKUP.exe tool without the GUI? Please help.

Is you SQL Server and Sharepoint Web portion on the same box. If not, you need to use UNC file path after /file
