SPS 2003: Automate Backups

  Asked By: Viral    Date: Apr 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 997

With version 1.0, I was able to setup a batch file to run nightly backups with
the msdmback command. Does anybody know how I can set this up for version 2.0? I
noticed there is a msdmback command in version 2.0 also. Can I use this same

There is a utility for Sharepoint Portal Server called SPSBAckup.exe

Run SPSBAckup /? To see the options. It can be scripted but I have been
very unsuccessful so far
