Open the query window from  SM3-93-BILL2 and connect to,1533 (SQL Server - dbkore) Server and run the following script...

backup database <dbname> to disk = 'path and filename'
with init
Open the query window on,1533 server and connect to,1533 server
run the following script...
backup database <dbname> to disk = '\\SM3-93-BILL2\...\filename.bak'
with init

no ssis?
You can create a batch file using osql utilities...then automate the processes.

osql -S dbkore -U sa -P pass -Q " BACKUP DATABASE DK-DOTNET TO DISK = '\\SM3-93-BILL2\c$\DK_DOTNET.bak' " 

Open in new window

You can also use SQLCMD....instead of OSQL...

I want to copy the contents of the tables from one database to another tables
backup up. Not put it in a backup file.
Steve HoggITCommented:
So, in SSIS, you want to backup a database, all of it's tables, to another database. How about views, stored procedures and functions? Users? Or just the tables and data.
Since your are using SQL Server 2005  please use SQLCMD is the new  verssion. OSQL and SQLCMD are functionaly equivalent see link

SQLCMD  -S dbkore -U sa -P pass -Q " BACKUP DATABASE DK-DOTNET TO DISK = '\\SM3-93-BILL2\c$\DK_DOTNET.bak' " 

Open in new window

just tables and data

I have a host server with database name dk-dotnet
I have on my machine a database with the same name dk-dotnet
I want to transfer the information from host to my machine
Steve HoggITCommented:
If the table did not change, then you could easily create an SSIS package to do this. Can you expect the tables might change or new tables will be added? And, if this is the case, you want the SSIS package to dynamically backup all tables?
mathieu_cuprykAuthor Commented:
The tables will not change.
An SSIS package would be cool. I am not really familar but I have to start learning SSIS.
Steve HoggITCommented:
In SQL Server Management Studio you can click on the database you want to Backup and select Tasks, Export Data. Then you follow the wizard to copy all of the tables to your Destination database. If the tables are not there, it will create the tables in a script. When you get to the end, choose the option to save as an SSIS Package. Next, we will open Integration Services in Visual Studio and edit the package so it can run as a scheduled job.

do I do a copy data  or a write query
mathieu_cuprykAuthor Commented:
Do I save this as a file system or sql server
Steve HoggITCommented:
Save to File System
Copy Tables - Not Query
mathieu_cuprykAuthor Commented:
encrypt data sensitive data with user key.
mathieu_cuprykAuthor Commented:
or do not save sensive data?

which one do i use hogg.
Steve HoggITCommented:
If you connect to SQL Server with Windows Authentication then it really does not matter. But just to be save, choose Do Not Save

C:\Documents and Settings\mcupryk\My Documents\Copy.dtsx

ok what should i do now?
Steve HoggITCommented:
To open SSIS, go to SQL Server 2005 on the Start Menu. Choose Visual Studio Business Intelligence Development Studio.
Create a New Project, Integration Services.
In the Solution Explorer, Right Click and Add existing package. Choose File System and go grab your saved package. Open it up and you are now editing the SSIS Package.

Here is my document on Getting Started with SSIS. Post your package here if you want me to take a look. You should open each of your Connection Managers and Test the Connection. You may also need to save the package with a ProtectionLevel of Encrypt with User Key. You can do this by setting the property for the Package.

ok I got it I had to check the identities in each table what should I do next.
Steve HoggITCommented:
In your SSIS Package you have the Create Table statements, but on a regular basis you may want to just Truncate these tables, not Drop and Recreate them. So modify your Preparation SQL accordingly, to Truncate or Drop & Recreate. Then, you probably should remove the Identity columns from this backup database so you can insert the numbers as they exist in the Source database. But just so I mention, you might be able to do this anyway just by enabling Identity inserts. Does this help?
mathieu_cuprykAuthor Commented:
This is good thought. But I did not know I would have to remove identity columns,
This is more work.
