Great tool, but doesn't work with Amazon RDS MS SQL. Anyone have luck with this?

    Hi hbax450

    SQL Backup does not support Amazon RDS. From the information I have read about Amazon RDS is that they provide you with a database instance and they perform all the administrative tasks including backup services for your database instance.

    For SQL Backup to operate successfully, you will need to install the SQL Backup Server components which include:
      Total of nine Extended Stored Procedures which are created in the master database. SQL Server Compact Edition, used to cache the backup and restore history from the msdb database. SQL Backup Agent Service, Windows service that runs the SQL Backup engine.
    I suspect that you would be denied installing the SQL Backup Server Components on the Amazon RDS.

    Many Thanks

    Hi hbax450

    I have just had another thought. If you are a Red Gate SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare user, you could use these tools to obtain a local copy of your database by comparing and deploying the changes to a test database.

    Many Thanks

    Thanks Eddie, yes we are. It's just something I'd rather have automated. To run that routine on the 10+ databases we have, it would be a huge time commitment.
