The log output is in NMSROOT\log\dbbackup.log.

Here are the entries from my backup attempts today. Not much detail other than start time. Rather than running an application level backup... is there a way to backup 1 specific databases? In my case the RME DB.

No. The backup must backup every application. The same is true for restore. You must restore all of LMS together.


As for troubleshooting, this, try running the backup.pl command manually from the command line:


NMSROOT\bin\perl NMSROOT\bin\backup.pl e:\CW_Backup

That command was my initial try at 9 am this morning... I still have the command window open from this morning. Here is the text displayed.


E:\CSCOpx\bin>perl E:\CSCOpx\bin\backup.pl E:\CW_Backup

When I ran the backup proccess from the gui... after selecting ok to perform the imediate backup... the screen sets on the scheduling window and eventually times out with page can not be displayed.

Unfortunately, there is no way to know where it's hanging without more direct troubleshooting. The problem may be related to a damaged E:\CSCOpx\backup\manifest directory. I suggest you open a TAC service request so more analysis can be done.
