Hello,

I try to build a backup command but the default backup directory is specified :
DECLARE @FILE VARCHAR(65)
DECLARE @DUMPFILE VARCHAR(150)

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),GETDATE(),112)
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108)
SELECT REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108),':','')

SET @FILE = CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),GETDATE(),112) + '_' + REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108),':','')
SELECT @FILE
SET @DUMPFILE = '''' + 'd:\backup' + @FILE + '.bak' + ''''
SELECT @DUMPFILE



BACKUP database model 
to disk=@DUMPFILE
with compression, copy_only

Open in new window


DECLARE @FILE VARCHAR(65)
DECLARE @DUMPFILE VARCHAR(150)

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),GETDATE(),112)
SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108)
SELECT REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108),':','')

SET @FILE = CONVERT(VARCHAR(10),GETDATE(),112) + '_' + REPLACE(CONVERT(VARCHAR,GETDATE(),108),':','')
SELECT @FILE
SET @DUMPFILE = '''' + 'd:\backup' + @FILE + '.bak' + ''''
SELECT @DUMPFILE



BACKUP database test
to disk=@DUMPFILE
with compression, copy_only

Msg 3201, Level 16, State 1, Line 15
Cannot open backup device 'E:\MSSQLSQL01\BACKUP\'d:\backup20160824_180424.bak''. Operating system error 123(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15105).
Msg 3013, Level 16, State 1, Line 15
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.


Why?

Thanks

Regards

Hi

Please could you try removing two apostrophes from the beginning and end. e.g.

SET @DUMPFILE = '' + 'd:\backup' + @FILE + '.bak' + ''

Thanks,
Helen

Also, if you want the backup to be saved to the backup folder, add an oblique to the directory e.g.

SET @DUMPFILE = '' + 'd:\backup\' + @FILE + '.bak' + ''
