We are using VMware in our network and all our servers are virtualised.
We have windows 2008 R2- Datacenter server.VEEAM backup and VMware vSphere client (Appliance) is installed on this server. Now I want to upgrade to 2012.
Before I Upgrade, I wanted to take a backup of the Veeam database .
If I go to all programs, I can see Microsoft SQL server 2008R2, when I expand the folder I can see only
Import and export Data (64bit)
Under configuration tools:
SQL Server Configuration Manager
SQl server error and usage report
SQL server Installation center.
I cannot see “The Microsoft SQL server Management Studio express”.
Do I need to install Microsoft SQL server Management Studio express if I have to take the backup of the database as per the link. below or a different way of taking a backup.
Please suggest any help much appreciated.
