hello together,

we have to shut down an server with SQL Backup 7 and there are some managed Servers.
Now we want to install SQL Backup 7 on a new server (Windows 2012).

Is there an option / possibility to migrate all settings in SQL Backup 7 to the new SQL Backup 7 ?

i hope you understand what i want to know...

thank you

  • hello,

    we have to shut down a server which is responsible to coordinate all SQL Backups.
    So we have to install a new server.
    Can i export settings - configs - etc. so that i can import them on the new server ?

  • Hi,

    Currently the SQL Backup GUI is user specific and that user's configuration is then stored by default in the users profile as follows:

    Windows 2003 server and XP
    C:Documents and settings<user_name>Application DataRed GateSQL BackupServer Data
    C:Documents and settings<user_name>Local SettingsApplication DataRed GateSQL BackupServers.Dat

    Windows 2008 & 2008R2, Vista and Windows 7
    C:Users<user_name>AppDatalocalRed GateSQL BackupServer Data --folder contains 2 or more .dat files depending on the number of server added to the GUI, for example 1.dat, 2.dat, 137.dat
    C:Users<User_name>AppDataRoamingRed GateSQL BackupServers.dat

    If you copy these files from one users profile to another into the users profile.

    Otherwise the only other alternative is to re-add each server individually.

    Let me know if this helps.
