Backup of CMC Database

Dear All,

We are using SAP BO 4.1 with default DB (MSSQLSERVER2008) which comes with the installation, now my question is how to backup CMC database, I checked SQL Server Configuration there is no option to take backup.

In CMC setting I can see hot backup is enabled with duration time 240 minutes but don’t know where or which location it will be saved?

A part from CMC database we need to take backup of (FRS) File Repository Server is there any tool or folder for taking backup of FRS

Also how to backup BIAR

If we backup CMC DB, FRS & BIAR is it enough to restore

Kindly guide.

    Hi Tabrayz,

    You can use the MSSQL client to take a backup of the CMS database.

    And for the Filestore you can simply make a copy of the filestore (IFRS and OFRS) in another location.

    Backup of these 2 should be sufficient to restore a system.

    You can however, also create a BIAR file (say containing important reports, the connections used, universes etc) by using the Promotion Management or UMT tools.

    Hope this helps.
