    Windows Server ASR from Command Line

    Does anyone know if you can automate Windows Server 2003 ASR backups in any way ? I'd like to be able to run batch files to automate this but can't see to find a switch to do an ASR backup. Does it have to be done from the GUI ?

    Thanks
    David

    From that page - "The ASR backup option uses an undocumented command line parameter of the Microsoft Backup Utility, as scheduled ASR backups do not seem to be documented or supported by Microsoft. "

    I'd love to know what the parameter is.

    simple backup question/problem
    It's undocumented. You need to modify the command line:

    Before: c:\...\ntbackup.exe backup selection... /switches
    After: c:\...\ntbackup.exe asrbackup /switches

    Make sure the floppy is in the drive.
