Backup/Restore Addition to Microsft .NET Web Data Administrator Application
Posted on 2003-11-11
Currently, the Microsoft Web Data Administrator application (does not support Backup and Restore Features for DBs. I would like to extend the interface to include this as a content menu option. After Login, the DBA should be able to select one of their DBs and perform a backup, and then be able to download that backup. Alternatively, they should be able to upload a backup and restore that. The backup directory would be set to a UNC path \\server\dbbackup which is the default MS backup dir (i.e. - c:\program files\microsoft sql\data\backup or whereever sql 2000 has been installed). There should be settings foe maximum size of file upload/download, and of course all the available options for backup and restore that you see in enterprise manager such as what kind of backup to perform (complete, transactions, etc..) and what kind of restore to perform (force, transaction, etc..).
