MS SQL Backup examples

If you want to back up an MS SQL database to a file, follow these examples shown below:

Illustrated examples are with default settings

These examples are intended for use with default settings (for example, default database name and database connection settings). Your backup script will need to be customized to accommodate any changes you have made to default settings.

One time database backup
Open a Windows command prompt and type the following command to create a backup file named BACKUPFILE:

SQLCMD -S HOST\ERASQL -q "BACKUP DATABASE ERA_DB TO DISK = N'BACKUPFILE'"

HOST - IP address or hostname
ERASQL - name of the MS SQL server instance

Regular database backup with sql script
Choose one of the following SQL scripts:

  1. Create regular backups and store them based on date of creation:

1. @ECHO OFF
2. SQLCMD.EXE -S HOST\ERASQL -d ERA_DB -E -Q "BACKUP DATABASE ERA_DB TO DISK = N'BACKUPFILE' WITH NOFORMAT, INIT, NAME = N'ERA_DB', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STOP_ON_ERROR, CHECKSUM, STATS=10"
3. REN BACKUPFILE BACKUPFILE-[%DATE%-%RANDOM%]

  1. Append your backup to a file:

1. @ECHO OFF
2. SQLCMD.EXE -S HOST\ERASQL -d ERA_DB -E -Q "BACKUP DATABASE ERA_DB TO DISK = N'BACKUPFILE' WITH NOFORMAT, NOINIT, NAME = N'ERA_DB', SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD, STOP_ON_ERROR, CHECKSUM, STATS=10"

For more information on Microsoft SQL Server backup see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article.

MS SQL restore

To restore an MS SQL database from a file, execute this command:

ROOTLOGIN - the root account of MySQL server
ERADBNAME - ESMC database name
