Online Backup of Vantage 8.00.810

After listening to the trouble that Aaron Hoyt had with his recovery, we
changed our backup to leave the last few backups like Charlie does but we also
copy the most recent backup to another server. That way, if you lose the
drive/array that the Vantage database is on, you'll still have your disc
backup handy.

Can someone please help me. How do I do a live backup of Vantage 8.00.x? In
6.1 I used the sample batch files that were installed into the Mfgsys61
directory along with the MFGBKUP.TXT file for guidance on setting up the
automated nightly routine. Can someone point me in the right direction for
finding the corresponding information for 8.00.x?


Thanks,

Marc

Marc,



Pretty much the same as in V6.1. Below is the text of the .bat file I
use. Paste into a notepad doc, save as a .bat, then call it out in task
scheduler.



@echo off

rem Epicor BACKMFG.BAT created:07/98 JE - edited: 11/20/02

rem

rem This .bat script requires modification by the system administrator

rem to include the correct paths and dirctory locations.

rem

rem NOTE:

rem Drive letter of database be a physical drive, not mapped.

rem Drive letter of backup copy can be physical or mapped,

rem on server or across network.

rem

rem General syntax of BACKMFG.BAT does the following:

rem 1) Surpress screen display (echo off)

rem 2) Drive letter locating the MFGBKUP.BAT file.

rem 3) Directory path to the MFGBKUP.BAT file.

rem 4) Call of MFGBKUP to do the backup "online"

rem of c:\path\mfgsys.db database to c:\backupdir\backup.file.

rem

rem System admin should EDIT the following:

rem a) Change DRIVE LETTER to drive where

rem directory PRGS91D\BIN\MFGBKUP.BAT is located.

rem b) Verify path to Mfgsys60\prgs91d\bin and edit if necessary.

rem c) Edit drive letter and path to database location.

rem d) Edit drive letter and path to where back should be placed

rem e) Create the BACKUP directory where backup file will be placed

rem f) copy the BACKMFG.BAT file OUT of the Mfgsys60 folder and paste

rem it into any other directory were it will be called on.

rem (i.e. Backup, Prgs91d\Bin, scripts, etc.)

As Todd said. Use your 6.1 scripts, just change the name of the
directory where your database is. If you are using 8.0 it should be in
the MFGSys80\db folder If you are using 8.03, then use the Mfgsys803\db
folder. Also verify the location of your Open Edge and change to that
directory before calling MFGBKUP.



One of the things I also do with my customers is to create a rotation of
5 or 6 datasets backups.
