Navision Backup

I there, we just purchased Navision and have been using it for a couple months now.  I need some assistance with creating and restoring backups.  I have just copy and pasted the database somewhere else right now...but I 'm not even sure the proper way to restore that.  I would ideally like to set it up to do differential backups so and learn how to restore them...whatever is easiest for me to manage once a week.  I need to really learn how to restore this as well. Thanks!  We are not using SQL right now.

Do you have access to Microsoft Customer Source?

They have KB articles (861749 and others) that discuss the proper backup and restore methods.

Check with your VAR if you do not have your Customer Source login information.   Customer Source should be your first stop for answers to these types of questions.

hi

navision basically uses SQL as the back end database and you can us any backup solution like CA ARCserve using the SQL database client agent to backup the SQL database from a CA ARCserve Backup server.

you can also use the native tool of navision to run backup of your navision hotcopy.exe which is located in the installation directory.

There's also an option to backup the financial information (FBK file) under the Tools menu of NAV itself.  I believe this can be scheduled but I'm not sure what kind of backup options (full, differential, etc) you have available.

Sorry for the late response.  I don't believe I have access to Microsoft Customer Source.  Not sure how to do that.

Do you have a VAR that you work with (they sold you NAV)?

I'm not sure because the guy that took care of that left no documentation and left the company.  I guess I can try to find out but just thought I could find a solution on here.

I manage a Navision 4.0 SP3 Native Database installation with 30 users and backups were a pain until I found a solution rather than using HOTCOPY all the time.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
