how to add a backup device

Hi all,

I am planing to take a backup for my XI PRD server on an external hard drive which is connected directly to the XI PRD sever via a USB cable.

Now my question where should we define it so that when we want to take a backup thru DB13 it should show my external HDD.... for the backup

Can anyone help me do this please, its urgent for us...

I am not sure where do we define the devices...

We are running SQL server 2005 on WIN 2003 server, ECC 6.0

waiting to hear more from you.

Thanks and regards

    Hello Hari,

    you can do this this way:

    Define the backup medium in the SQL Server Enterprise Manager.

    <u>SQL Server Enterprise Manager:</u>

    - Open the Enterprise Manager

    - Navigate to your installation, probably: (local) (Windows NT)

    - In the left menu tree goto: Management -> Backup

    - Right click in the right window and select: New Backup Device

    - Enter the correct path to your Filename on the external HDD

    Regards, Michael
