Using the Command-Line Tools to Back Up and Restore Data

You can use the command line to back up and restore the database either locally, by using Owsadm.exe, or remotely, by using Owsrmadm.exe. To back up the database from the command line, you use the BackupDB operation. To restore, you use RestoreDB. The BackupDB operation takes the optional parameters –filename, -port, and –schedule. To do a simple backup of the database on port 80, you would use the following syntax:
Owsadm.exe –o backupdb –p 80 –f path/filename
The RestoreDB operation takes the optional –filename and –port parameters. To perform a simple restore of the same database, you would use the following syntax:
Owsadm.exe –o restoredb –p 80 –f path/filename
You can also back up the database automatically, by creating a scheduled job for the backup process. To schedule automatic backup you use the BackupDB operation with the schedule parameter, and specify a time/day/month/year to back up the database.
Note The SharePoint Timer Service is not available for FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on the Windows Server 2003 family platform. For that environment, you must back up the database manually, rather than scheduling automatic backups. If you want to automate the backup process, you can do so by including the backup command-line string in a batch file or script.
The following example syntax shows how to set the database to be backed up every Monday at 11:59 P.M. for port 80.
owsadm –o backupdb –p 80 –schedule "weekly at Mon 23:59"
For more information about specifying the times to use for backing up the database, see Scheduling Timed Jobs.
