Backup Databases Only

Status: Future Consideration
by Product Support on ‎06-26-2012 06:20 AM

It would be useful to be able to backup\restore with out the filestore.


A commandline swithc would be useful to exclude the filestore from the backup if you just want to either validate your databases by restoring them to a test\dummy machine.


For sending the backup to support


For testing the migration to a new release


Then the ability to attach the filestore later.

Or can we backup and restore the database and filestore manually with SQL server management studio?

i dont see why you wouldn't be able to backup the database manually?

It is possible to backup and restore manually, through SQL, but this process is not supported and not documented. There are many customers who would struggle with this.


To clarify, the wish is to take a backup through the ADMS Console, ommitting the filestore.

What I would really like to see is the ability to backup a selected vault and it's filestore, where multiple vaults exist within the ADMS. I would like to have the option of excluding Content Centre Libraries from backup and restore options.


Obviously, having backed up a single vault (database and filestore) I would need to be able to restore a single vault into the ADMS without overwriting existing vaults and libraries.
