Since I migrated to 2005 (from full 2000) the database backup that used to take 6 minutes now takes 40.
Now as all the sims admins know any upgrade/patch carries out a backup before applying (whether you've done one manually or not) So every little patch now takes roughly 40 minutes and 3 seconds.
This is getting damned annoying with all the little patches that have been needed of late so I rang county support (We pay them for SIMS, I just don't want to know when it comes to SIMS) and the answer back from them. "Thats perfectly normal" grrr
Anyone else experiencing a huge increase in db backup since the forced move to 2005?
I'm told you can place all patches into a single directory and do the backup once.
That will certainly work if you have all the patches already. Can you confirm what the situation is if you have three patches to install via SOLUS? I think it will do a backup for each one then.
dbugrade.exe will perform a backup at the start, not sure about solus.Originally Posted by Jawloms
SOLUS currently makes a backup for each package that it deploys (ie a separate backup for each patch/release). However - a future version will change this, so that SOLUS makes a single backup.
Yes, I can confirm that it takes 30 mins + for us now also.
Here also :-(
takes about 15 minutes here along with the customary 100+ system log errors
Ah well, at least it isn't me. Its just so damned annoying, but I guess I can say that about a lot of things.
Also, thanks for that update Toby.
