Hi,

We have a payroll datbase called "Payroll" on a database server called "SQL" running Windows server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2

The employee doing the payrolls works on a terminal server and needs to do a manual backup of the database "Payroll" part way through the pay run. This employee does not have admin rights to the databse server and has a basic understanding of IT.

I need a way for the employee to run a backup of the Payroll database from the terminal server, whether this is in a batch file or some other way.

Thanks

They could run a local powershell script

You could add the user to the SQL role db_backupoperator so they could do this task without having sysadmin rights
