Scheduling Backups using NTBACKUP on Windows Server 2003
Posted on 2010-11-18
We have a server at a remote location and need to back it up. We already have a Unitrends solution at our data center. The issue is that we cannot use this to backup over the WAN unless we purchase their vaulting applicance, and we are a non-profit.
So I am using NTBACKUP and a external 1 TB HDD to back up to. I am not that familiar with NTBACKUP, However, I was hoping there was a way I can set it so it doesnt require me to log in and kick it off. I say this as I am a consultant and will not be here in the future. I am looking to automate this process.
It should be noted there is a SQL DB on this server. It is backed up over the WAN transaction level with a FULL backup of that DB each night.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide experts!
