As horrible as Sharepoint is I'm looking for some best practices for backing it up.
I know you can backup through the Central Administration console to a remote directory which is fine and I am more then happy to do that - is there a better way to do it? Also can this be set to automatically backup rather then manual?
I will be veeam replicating the server to external DR site but need an alternate method to backup this up if possible.
Windows PowerShell script files are .ps1 files.
You can use Backup-SPFarm to do it. For help and examples, type get-help Backup-SPFarm -examples.
For example, the follow script will start a full backup to e:\backup.
Backup-SPFarm -Directory E:\Backup -BackupMethod full
Save it as E:\Scripts\BackupSharePointFarm.ps1. You may need to use "set-executionpolicy RemoteSigned" to allow a local unsigned ps1 file to run.
And put the following as your scheduled command line, or inside your batch file....
powershell -command E:\Scripts\BackupSharePointFarm.ps1
In task scheduler, the account need to be set to the one who has admin permissions (or at least with powershell permission) otherwise it cannot run properly.
You can launch SharePoint Management Shell, or load snap in in the powershell prompt manually.
Thats the info I'm after. Linux Web servers are so much easier to backup then this Sharepoint thing (and a hell of a lot less complicated.)
Mmmmm depends on how and what you planning on backing up and how you're gonna do it. Remeber when james used to be at Oriel half it was Linux and never worked properly haha.
Yeah there is that....haha! Yeah i hear i was a bit put off with the thought of KVM though but thats just me. What they have now is just mind boggaling ! Conrad has done an amazing job using VMware, Microsoft solution suites ect... but i guess you where working on a budget of sorts? But it dose sound good
