As a server admin that was "drafted by force" into the position I have come across a problem that I have seen Many solutions for but cant seem to figure out how they are implemented.
We are using Server 2003 SBS and there are about 6 client computers. The server is currently backed up over the network to an old Dell Workstation converted with two 1TB drives in a Mirrored RAID configuration. The backups perform fine using the GUI through Server 2003. However each day the new backup overwites the previous backup.
Questions are as such:
1: I have read some Command Line solutions.....is this easier than a scheduled task solution that I have seen here? ie: http://www.experts-exchange.com/codeSnippetPopup.jsp?csid=261527
If so, can someone lay out a step by step for how this is done. Again, I apoligize for my level of experience. I was thrust into this position.....I am VERY familiar with using AD, IIS and most other functions, just not very familiar with scripting, VBS, command line usage or scheduled tasks.
2: Can anyone layout a step by step for either the command line process or the scheduled task process (or possible BOTH processes). I hope the answer to this problem can be used for me as well as others that need to know the process from the most basic starting point to the end....kinda a "NTBACKUP for DUMMIES" answer.....
Each backup done is a FULL BACKUP.....I am also not sure of the command to perform a full backup via the command line or scheduled task.
3: If any other data from my end to completely answer this problem is needed let me know.
Currently the backup computers path is:
thank you for any assistance
