    Hi,

    Does it means offsite backup is a database backup outside the server location e.g. backup from branch where server located in the HQ that both are different in location ?

    If yes, it will be impossible. The backup result must be in the server.

    I am not sure if you maintain database per each branch and just use one license server that located in the head quarter. Let me know

    Rgds,

    Hi Tendayi,

    As long as you can create SQL server connection to the Offsite Backup Server, you can always use SQL Server's built-in function for replication. You can schedule the replication task according to your needs.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    • Hello,

      In order to have a backup available offsite, I would create (a) scheduled task(s)

      1. Backup DB

      2. Copy over just created backup to another location

      (3. If necessary: On new location: Restore DB from backup)

      Kind regards

    We have clients that require a hot site and a cold site as part of their Disaster Recovery (DR) process.

    To do this, we just recommend a simple automated backup (part of the MS SQL maintenance plan) and then use an application called Sync Toy (from Microsoft) to sync the backup file to their remote server. The backup file is always sync'ed at night and is done daily automatically.

    Sync Toy can be downloaded here --> http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=E0FC1154-C975-4814-9649-CCE41AF06EB7&displaylang=en

    More info on Sync Toy here --> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SyncToy

    Note, the only major issue with DR is that when the client wants to do a test run of the DR site, you will have to get the client to purchase some licenses as the Hardware key for the DR server is different.
