You can schedule backups for system and company databases to occur on the 
days and the times that you specify. Only a system administrator can open the 
Schedule Backup window to schedule database backups.  	 
To schedule a database backup: 	 
1. Open the Schedule Backup window. 	 
(File >> Backup >> Schedule button) 	 
2. Enter a name for the schedule. 
3. Select the company to back up. The path where the database will be 
backed up  
is displayed. You can modify the path, as needed. 	 
4. Mark the days to back up the database. 	 
5. Enter or select a time of day to back up the database. 	 
6. Choose Save to save the schedule. 

Hope this helps, rc.

Are you logged in as the system administrator.

This is not availible until version 9. The easiest thing to do is to create a 
maintenance plan in SQL to backup the databases there. you can then schedule 
this to run whenever you want it to.

Could I recommend a SQL JOB.

You can get the backups off the server and this is very much desired.
For instance, I like to get the client's backups in at least two places.

Where there are lots of transactions the LDF files bloat and often even if 
there are backups being performed.  Getting the TRN and BAK files off the 
server is also important because of disk space.

I often see GP and SQL installs done on the C drive.

You can move the databases and if this is the case you should endeavor to 
move the company databases off to another spindle.

Look into the Backup Database to Device and Backup log to Device options in 
SQL books.

Great Plains and RMS
I've upgraded our RMS systems to service pack 3. We now have the option of selecting the GP accounting option. It looks like we have to download an add-on for Great Plains.. Is this true ? The one out there only says for import to GP 7.5 We are currently running GP 8.0. Will it work for this version? Do I even need this add-on, now that you can select the GP accounting option? Scot, KB 893330 discusses integration with GP 8.0, but the links are broken for the download. If my memory is correct, there was talk about a 10/01/05 release date. -- * "Scot S" <ScotS@discussio...

How to Backup Exchange 5.5
We're running Small Business Server 4.5 which comes with Exchange Server 5.5. I'm totally new to Exchange Server, but I'm responsible for backing it up now. :-) So, would someone mind telling me exactly what I need to do to backup all the e-mails, contacts, etc. in Exchange so that I could restore them if we had a disaster. I'm looking for the easiest (maybe not the most efficient) way to do this. We're currently using a backup product from a company called OnStream. As far as I can tell, it's just a 'dumb' tape backup with no Exchange-specific functionality...

Exchange as backup MX
We want to use our Exchange 2003 server as a backup for a customer. If their Exchange server is unavailable (primary MX), mail should arrive at our Exchange server and store there till the other one is available again. Their DNS has been changed so that their primary MX (priority 10) points to their server and the second (priority 20) points to ours. What do I set on our Exchange? In Recipient Policies, I have added them, and for their SMTP I have NOT ticked "This Exchange organization is responsible for all mail delivered to this address" Should I tick this?

MS Great Plains
We have Great Plains (PersonnelOracle Version 2002.03.15 3.0.6. and PowerTool 2002.03.19. 3.1.1.) installed. Previously we have used Office 2000 and the Word merge was working perfectly. Upgrading to 2002 or 2003 the Word merge stopped working, I suppose we need new templates for Word 2003 (.dot files). Who shall we contact with? Any suggestion would be appreciated!

Sending messages in Plain text format to one email recipient by default in OL2002
I use OL2002. I've opened up the contact, "Joe Smith". I double-click on the email field. It shows that the "Internet format" field is "Send plain text only". However, when I draft an email to this contact, "Joe Smith", it still goes out as HTML. (And if it is sent as HTML, he never receives it.) While drafting the message, if I remember to go to the tool bar and change it from HTML to Plain text, Joe Smith will receive the message. But, if I forget to change it from HTML to Plain Text, then Joe never sees the message. Also worth noting:...

Windows 7 backup & SBS2008 Prem.
Hi, I have an SBS 2008 network, with Windows 7 clients. I setup a share on my server for the clients to use to do backups. I also have the user's profile folders redirected to the server as well, which covers Documents and Desktop (the default I guess when you tell sbs to redirect). Everything seems to work fine as far as the backups go, but the Windows 7 Action Center is complaining that I need to check my backup status. When I do, it mearly tells me that it skipped Documents, Desktop, Video etc. because they are on the server. I'm fine with those being skipped as th...
