    i have a live server and a backup server which is a copy of the live server (application and data base).

    the 2 servers are not in a network but live on the net.
    can i schedule a backup job which is then automatically saved on the backup server? can that be done in win server 2003? i would appreciate some help on this.

    sp_configure ‘show advanced options’, 1;
    GO
    RECONFIGURE;
    GO
    sp_configure ‘Agent XPs’, 1;
    GO

    Hi,

    Thanks a lot for the article. It help to scheduled backup. The schedule task worked. Its ok.

    I had tried for differential backup. I have some questions.
    a) How can we create a differential base backup? Should we manually backup the database(full backup)?
    b) How can we restore the database with the differential backups?

    The article will be much more helpful if the above questions will be replied here. (I can still google for my questions.)

    Thanks
    Ram

    Could you explain your problem a bit more? I am not understanding your actual problem. You can directly choose the frequency option (daily, weekly, monthly, …) as shown in the screen.

  23. kcherupa said

    Hi Alok,

    Looks like you don’t have SSIS service (Sql Server 2005 Integration Services) installed on your machine. This must be installed in order to use maintenance plans. For more details look at this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909036

  24. kcherupa said

    To setup a backup for every half an hour you need to follow all the steps as explained in the post. In step 6 Yo need to select daily in Frequency section. And you also need to select 30 minutes in daily frequency section.
