Hello there,

I have 2 windows 2008 R2 server(calling them Production and Reporting). I have SQL server 2008 installed on both of them and I have my ERP application which is used by my users to do their every day work on the production server. Now I want to take backup of database from my production server every 2 hours and restore my Reporting DB with this backup automatically without the users coming to know or have to get disconnected from their work. So that my users using the reporting server can have their new data every 2 hours. Can I achieve this with SQL Backup Pro. At present I am doing the restore part and creating the Login manually on the reporting server every 2 hours from 9am to 4pm. As you can see this is becoming tedious job for me. I will appreciate your help if you can help me out.
