Let’s get Sharepoit backed up – and schedule it!

I know we do a lot for our SBS customers, but one thing that we do not do is back up your Sharepoint website, http://companyweb, for you.  Start the new year out by taking proactive measures to back up your Sharepoint website(s). 

Should you get in that undesireable situation of needing to restore, you will have a good backup from which to restore.  You can also restore to a different server with the stsadm backup.

Here is the syntax: 

a. Click "Start", and then click "Run".

 b. In the "Open: "box, type "cmd", and then click OK.

 c. At the command prompt, type the following, and then press ENTER:
  < "cd <%programfiles%>\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\60\BIN" (without the quotation marks)>

 d. At the command prompt, type the following, where Backup_Path is the path of the backup file, and then press ENTER:
   "stsadm -o backup -url http://companyweb -filename <Backup_Path>" (without the quotation marks)

Hope everyone had a great New Year!
