1 Access the SQLsafe Release Ntes SQLsafe is a pwerful backup and recvery slutin that greatly reduces backup and recvery time, minimizes strage requirements, and prvides enterprise management capabilities t cnduct backups acrss a large numbers f servers simultaneusly. Yu can get a quick glimpse int the newest features, fixed issues, and knwn issues in this release f SQLsafe by accessing the Release Ntes. Learn abut key new features in this release Review issues fixed by this release Review previus features and fixed issues See knwn issues See list f recmmended Idera Slutins Updated: 1/10/2012 5:38 PM

2 Get Started Use the fllwing checklist t get started using SQLsafe. Fllw these steps... Register the SQL Server instances yu want t backup and restre. Deply Backup Agents t yur registered instances. If yu want t receive alert ntificatins thrugh , cnfigure yur settings. If yu want the ptin t use the InstantRestre feature t restre a database enable the InstantRestre service. Determine what yur backup and recvery strategy will be. Determine whether yu will perfrm manual backups r create plicies t autmate yur backups. Determine which types f cmpressin and encryptin are best fr yur envirnment. Determine whether yu will use lg shipping plicies as part f yur recvery strategy. Ensure that yu are able t restre the database. Yu can perfrm a full backup, r yu can test yur cnfiguratin by running a verify-nly backup. T perfrm a verify-nly backup, run the Restre Wizard and select the Verify nly ptin n the Recvery tab.

3 Upgrade t this release Upgrading SQLsafe allws yu t take advantage f the new features available in versin 7.0. TIP The backup file names using the %timestamp% macr may change and cause issues with yur backup files. This issue nly affects sme users. Fr mre infrmatin, see the Knwn Issues sectin f the Release Ntes. TIP SQLsafe 7.0 includes a file system filter driver t supprt the InstantRestre feature. The driver, named SQLsafe- FilterDriver, allws SQL Server t access database data while SQLsafe is executing InstantRestre. The driver is nly used during this actin and is n lnger in use nce the database is cmpletely hydrated. Upgrade checklist T successfully upgrade yur Micrsft SQL Server envirnment t this build, cmplete the prcedures utlined in the fllwing table. These prcedures supprt upgrades frm SQLsafe versins 5.0 r later. Fllw this step... Ensure the cmputers n which yu want t upgrade SQLsafe meet r exceed the prduct requirements fr SQLsafe versin 7.0. Fr example, ensure.net Framewrk 2.0 SP1 r later is running n the target cmputer. Ensure yur Windws lgn accunt has lcal administratr permissins n the cmputers yu intend t upgrade. Review the prduct architecture. Review the supprted installatin scenaris and identify the apprpriate upgrade path fr yur envirnment. Clse all pen applicatins n the cmputers yu intend t upgrade. Upgrade yur SQLsafe installatin. Available upgrade paths Because each cmpnent can be installed separately n different cmputers, the type f upgrade yu will need t perfrm will depend n yur envirnment. The fllwing table describes the cnditins under which yu wuld fllw a typical r staged upgrade path. Envirnment Descriptin Simple envirnment, where the Management Cnsle, the Repsitry, and the Management Service all reside n the same cmputer Distributed envirnment, where each SQLsafe cmpnent resides n a different cmputer. Recmmended Path Typical Staged Why A simple envirnment can be upgraded thrugh the setup prgram. A distributed envirnment requires a staged upgrade t maintain backup cntinuity while each cmpnent is upgraded.

4 Envirnment Descriptin Multiple Management Cnsles deplyed t different cmputers. Backup Agents frm different SQLsafe versins. Change cntrl plicies that require multiphased upgrades. Recmmended Path Staged Staged Staged Why A SQLsafe installatin with multiple Management Cnsles requires a staged upgrade in rder t maintain cnnectin with all Backup Agents while each cmpnent is upgraded. An envirnment that manages Backup Agents frm different SQLsafe versins requires a staged upgrade in rder t maintain cnnectin with all Backup Agents while each cmpnent is upgraded. An envirnment with stringent change cntrl plicies requires a multi-phased upgrade in rder t test each updated cmpnent thrughly befre mving n t the next step. New encryptin ptins in 6.0 and later SQLsafe 6.0 and later prvides new, mre secure encryptin algrithms. T use these new algrithms, upgrade yur Backup Agents t the latest versin. Previus Encryptin Optins SQLsafe 6.x Encryptin Optins AES DES Triple-DES RC2 AES-128 AES-256 These new encryptin ptins replace the ptins previusly available in SQLsafe 5.0 r earlier. Yu can select the new encryptin ptins when yu manually perfrm a backup, r create and edit existing Backup Plicies. If yu had set encryptin ptins when creating yur Backup Plicies, the encryptin methd specified in the crrespnding SQL Server jb will be autmatically updated t AES-128 when yu upgrade the assciated Backup Agent. Yu can later change this setting by editing the plicy. SQLsafe 6.0 and later des supprt previusly encrypted archives; yu can cntinue t restre any encrypted backup file created with a previus versin f SQLsafe.

5 Perfrm a staged upgrade Use a staged prcess t upgrade yur SQLsafe installatin if yu have a distributed envirnment, have deplyed multiple Backup Agents that cannt be upgraded during the same time perid, r yu need t adhere t change cntrl plicies. What is a distributed envirnment? A distributed envirnment cnsists f the SQLsafe management cmpnents running n different physical cmputers. The management cmpnents are: Repsitry database Management Service Management Cnsle The time scale ver which yu chse t perfrm a staged upgrade will depend n the size f yur SQL Server envirnment and yur crprate change cntrl plicies. Fr example, yu may chse t perfrm ne f the fllwing steps per day r per week; hwever, the rder in which yu perfrm them shuld remain the same. Hw t perfrm a staged upgrade Use this prcess if yur envirnment meets the fllwing cnditins: The SQLsafe cmpnents are installed n different cmputers All Backup Agents are versin 5.0 r earlier T perfrm a staged upgrade: 1. Upgrade the Management Service and Repsitry database t versin 7.0 by using the setup prgram t perfrm a Custm install. 2. Upgrade yur Management Cnsle installatins t versin 7.0. Althugh yu can upgrade the Management Cnsle installatins ver time, keep in mind that 5.0 and earlier Management Cnsles shuld nt be used with 7.x Backup Agents. 3. If yu use plicies t autmate yur backup and restre peratins, start the SQLsafe Management Cnsle t synchrnize the jbs assciated with each plicy. This synchrnizatin shuld happen autmatically. 4. Upgrade yur previusly deplyed Backup Agents accrding t yur change cntrl plicies. As yu upgrade yur Backup Agents, ensure yu use a 7.x Management Cnsle t manage the crrespnding instances and Backup Plicies.

6 Perfrm a typical upgrade Use the Typical install t upgrade yur SQLsafe installatin if yu have centralized SQLsafe deplyment r are upgrading frm a trial installatin. This prcess assumes yu can upgrade all deplyed Backup Agents during the same time perid. What is a typical envirnment? In a typical envirnment, the SQLsafe management cmpnents will be installed n the same physical cmputer. These cmpnents include: Repsitry database Management Service Management Cnsle Existing backups executed thrugh maintenance plans, SQL Server jbs, r the CLI will cntinue t run successfully using lder Backup Agents. Once yu have cmpleted the installatin f the management cmpnents, yu can upgrade yur Backup Agents. Hw t perfrm a typical upgrade A typical upgrade can be easily cmpleted during ff-hurs. T perfrm a typical upgrade: 1. Perfrm a Typical install t upgrade the management cmpnents t versin 7.0. When prmpted, verify the name f SQLsafe Repsitry database. 2. If yu use plicies t autmate yur backup and restre peratins, start the SQLsafe Management Cnsle t synchrnize the jbs assciated with each plicy. This synchrnizatin shuld happen autmatically. 3. Upgrade all previusly deplyed Backup Agents.

7 Upgrade deplyed Backup Agents Upgrading yur Backup Agents allws yu t take advantage f the new features in this release. Cnsider upgrading previusly deplyed Backup Agents ff-hurs during a single time perid r in stages accrding t yur crprate change plicies. Yu can remtely upgrade previusly deplyed agents thrugh the SQLsafe Agents view in the Management Cnsle. TIP The Backup Agent is autmatically installed n the lcal cmputer when yu install r upgrade any f the ther SQLsafe cmpnents. Backup Agent cmpatibility with Tivli Strage Manager (TSM) SQLsafe 6.4 and later includes extensive enhancements t hw SQLsafe handles backing up t and restring frm TSM Server. If yu stre backup files n a TSM Client nde, ensure yu upgrade the Backup Agents that perfrm backups and restres using thse files. Backup Agent cmpatibility with Backup Plicies SQLsafe 7.x requires versin 7.x Backup Agents t successfully run new Backup Plicies and edit existing Backup Plicies (created with SQLsafe 5.0 r earlier). If yu want t cntinue using 5.0 r earlier Backup Agents fr existing Backup Plicies, install SQLsafe 7.x alng side yur current SQLsafe deplyment. Use SQLsafe 7.x t create and manage new Backup Plicies, and use SQLsafe 5.0 t maintain existing plicies. Backup Agent cmpatibility with Lg Shipping Plicies Because SQLsafe 5.0 Backup Agents cannt restre backups written by 7.x Backup Agents, envirnments that include Lg Shipping plicies require a specific upgrade path. First upgrade the Backup Agents running n the SQL Server cmputers hsting the secndary databases, and then upgrade the Backup Agents running n the SQL Server cmputers hsting the primary databases. Otherwise, when SQLsafe attempts t ship a new transactin lg backup, the restre peratin will fail and the Lg Shipping plicy status will shw that the assciated jbs are ut f date until all the Backup Agents have been upgraded. Hw t upgrade a Backup Agent using the Management Cnsle This prcedure guides yu thrugh the prcess f upgrading previusly deplyed Backup Agents using the Management Cnsle. Yu can als manually upgrade a Backup Agent using the setup prgram. T upgrade deplyed Backup Agents: 1. Verify that yur envirnment includes a versin 7.0 SQLsafe Management Cnsle. 2. Start the new SQLsafe Management Cnsle, and navigate t the SQLsafe Agents view. T access the SQLsafe Agents view, click the SQLsafe Agents tab at the bttm f the Servers tree. 3. Fr each Backup Agent yu want t upgrade, select the SQL Server cmputer that is hsting the agent, and then click Upgrade SQLsafe Backup Agent n the right-click cntext menu. Upgrading the Backup Agent autmatically upgrades the SQLsafe XSP deplyed t each registered SQL Server instance running n the selected cmputer.

8 Upgrade the Lite r Freeware Agent The Management Cnsle detects when a registered SQL Server instance is running SQLsafe Lite r SQLsafe Freeware Editin. Yu can upgrade the Backup Agent t the current versin f SQLsafe enterprise editin using ne f the fllwing methds: Deply the current versin f the agent. Fr mre infrmatin, see Install SQLsafe Backup Agent. Select the instance in the Servers tree, and then click Enable trial license n the Instance View. This upgrades the license t an enterprise editin trial license. Click Upgrade n the SQLsafe Agent Prperties windw. Fr mre infrmatin, see Mdify Backup Agent prperties. When yu upgrade the Backup Agent, SQLsafe deplys the current versin f the Backup Agent with a trial license enabled. The trial license allws yu full access t the SQLsafe enterprise features fr all SQL Server instances hsted n that cmputer. The trial license is a limited-time, limited-instance license that yu will need t upgrade with a prductin license key.

9 Upgrade the SQLsafe Freeware Editin SQLsafe Freeware Editin is n lnger available. Hwever, yu can easily upgrade yur SQLsafe Freeware Editin deplyment t either SQLsafe r SQLsafe Lite. Upgrade SQLsafe Freeware Editin t SQLsafe Lite Yu can upgrade SQLsafe Freeware Editin t SQLsafe Lite 6.x by running the SQLsafe setup prgram n the target SQL Server cmputer and selecting Agent Only Install. The first time yu perfrm a backup using SQLsafe Lite, the tl will generate a trial license. T install and activate yur prductin license, click Idera > SQLsafe Lite > Activate License n the Start menu. Upgrade SQLsafe Freeware Editin t SQLsafe T upgrade frm SQLsafe Freeware Editin t SQLsafe 6.x, first perfrm a full installatin f SQLsafe, and then upgrade each deplyed Backup Agent thrugh the Management Cnsle. If yu install SQLsafe n the same cmputer as yur existing SQLsafe Freeware Editin, the crrespnding Backup Agent will be autmatically upgraded as part f this installatin. After installatin, apply yur new SQLsafe 6.x prductin license by clicking Manage License n the Tls menu in the Management Cnsle.

10 Deply the SQLsafe XSP There are tw ways t deply the SQLsafe XSP: remtely thrugh the Management Cnsle r lcally thrugh the cmmand-line interface (CLI). If yu are upgrading a Backup Agent, yu will be prmpted t perfrm an upgrade f the XSP fr all instances n the target SQL Server. If yu d nt want t deply the XSP t all instances n a given SQL Server, yu can deply the XSP t a single instance thrugh the Management Cnsle r the CLI. XSP deplyment thrugh the Management Cnsle Yu can upgrade the XSP when yu deply r upgrade the Backup Agent frm the Management Cnsle. At that time, yu will be prmpted fr permissin t install r perfrm an upgrade f the XSP fr all instances n the target SQL Server. T install r upgrade the XSP, click Yes, and cmplete the authenticatin infrmatin as necessary. This actin will install the new XSP n all instances n the SQL Server. Yu can als deply the XSP t a single instance. T deply the SQLsafe XSP t a single instance: 1. In the Servers tree, select the instance t which yu want t deply the XSP. 2. On the right-click cntext menu, click Install SQLsafe Extended Stred Prcedures. 3. Click OK. XSP deplyment using the SQLsafe CLI If yu did nt install the XSP during the Backup Agent upgrade, r yu want t deply the XSP t select instances n a given SQL Server, yu can install the XSP manually. T deply the SQLsafe XSP with the standalne installer: 1. Lg n with an administratr accunt t the SQL Server cmputer n which yu want t install the SQLsafe XSP. Ensure yur lgn accunt als belngs t the System Administratrs rle n each SQL Server instance. 2. Ensure yu have the mst current versin f SQLsafe. 3. Open the Cmmand Prmpt, and navigate t the directry where the SQLsafe CLI is installed. By default, the CLI is installed in C:\Prgram Files\Idera\SQLsafe. 4. Type SQLsafeCmd InstallXsp InstanceName MyInstance Server MyServerCmputer, specifying the name f the instance and the SQL Server cmputer. Fr mre infrmatin abut available InstallXSP ptins, such as specifying authenticatin credentials, see the CLI Help. T view the CLI Help, type SQLsafeCmd Help InstallXSP.

15 What is SQLsafe? Idera SQLsafe (SQLsafe) prvides a high-perfrmance backup and recvery slutin fr Micrsft SQL Server. SQLsafe saves mney by reducing database backup times by up t 50% ver native backups and reducing backup disk space requirements by up t 95%. SQLsafe als enables cmplete hands-free' autmated backups f yur entire SQL Server infrastructure and ensures cmpliance with yur rganizatin s backup and recvery plicies. Frm implementatins with tens f SQL Servers t enterprises with hundreds f instances spread arund the glbe, SQLsafe is the nly SQL Server backup and recvery slutin that scales t meet the challenge.

16 Hw des SQLsafe help me? In many rganizatins tday, SQL Server databases are the repsitries fr large vlumes f business-critical data. As database size grws, the time required t back up yur data using native tls can easily exceed yur maintenance windws, plus a huge amunt f strage space is needed fr the files. Restre peratins als becme time-cnsuming. DBAs need a pwerful backup and recvery slutin that greatly reduces backup and recvery time, minimizes strage requirements, and prvides enterprise management capabilities t cnduct backups acrss a large numbers f servers simultaneusly. SQLsafe has been specifically designed t meet these requirements, resulting in increased applicatin and business availability fr yur critical SQL Server infrastructure. As a state-f-the-art backup and recvery slutin, SQLsafe prvides: Maximum backup file cmpressin Minimum backup times Reduced failures due t netwrk glitches Accelerated mean time t restre Ensured cmpliance with crprate backup plicies

25 Prduct cmpnents and architecture SQLsafe prvides a rbust, easy-t-use SQL Server database backup and restre slutin. Behind a simple user interface, SQLsafe ffers an architecture that is bth flexible and extremely pwerful. SQLsafe fits yur envirnment, n matter hw simple r cmplex. The SQLsafe architecture easily runs in yur SQL Server envirnment with minimal cnfiguratin. All SQLsafe cmpnents run utside and separate frm SQL Server prcesses. SQLsafe des nt add t r mdify any f yur native SQL Server files r services. After yu install these cmpnents, yu can implement features such as Reprts. TIP Yu must use the same Windws accunt fr the Backup Agent and InstantRestre Service. During installatin, yu are asked t enter credentials fr nly ne accunt and the ther is created with the same infrmatin. If yu manually change yur accunt infrmatin, make sure yu change it in the ther service as well t avid any issues. Prduct cmpnents Management Cnsle The Management Cnsle is a centralized, intuitive user interface that allws yu t easily and quickly back up and restre data n specific SQL Server instances. The Management Cnsle als prvides a T-SQL generatr, allwing yu t create backup and restre T-SQL scripts. Yu can execute these scripts thrugh scheduled SQL Server jbs r cmbine several scripts int a single SQL Server scheduled batch jb. Repsitry Database The SQLsafe Repsitry (Repsitry) is a central database that tracks all SQLsafe backup and restre peratins and the crrespnding backup archive file paths fr yur enterprise. Management Service The Management Service receives events frm the Backup Agent, and then relays the status f all current and cmpleted peratins t the SQLsafe Repsitry. Backup Agent The Backup Agent perfrms backup and restre peratins. The agent is a service that runs n the target SQL Server cmputer. InstantRestre Service The InstantRestre Service is used by the Backup Agent t query and change any InstantRestre prperties nt managed by the Agent. Fr mre infrmatin abut InstantRestre prperties, see InstantRestre. Cmmand-line Interface and Extended Stred Prcedures The SQLsafe cmmand line interface (CLI) and extended stred prcedures (XSPs) allw yu t execute SQLsafe backup and restre prcedures with batch files r thrugh yur preferred scripting language. Yu can als use the CLI r XSPs as an alternative t the Management Cnsle. Fr sample XSP scripts, see the Sample Scripts prgrams menu shrtcut (Start > All Prgrams > Idera > SQLsafe > XSP > Sample Scripts). The fllwing scripts are available: xp_ss_backup xp_ss_brwse xp_ss_expire xp_ss_extract

30 Prt requirements The SQLsafe services use specific prts t cmmunicate t each ther as well as ther SQLsafe cmpnents. Befre installing SQLsafe, ensure the fllwing prts are available. Service Prt fr trusted dmains Prt fr nn-trusted dmains Backup Service Management Service SQLsafe autmatically detects whether its cmpnents have been installed in trusted r nn-trusted dmains. If yur envirnment requires SQLsafe t use a different prt, yu can specify a custm prt by changing the assciated registry key. Fr mre infrmatin abut hw t assign different prt numbers, see Idera Slutin 204. T cnfirm which prts t use, r t verify whether a dmain is trusted r nt, cntact yur netwrk administratr. TIP When yu specify a custm prt setting fr cmmunicatins in yur trusted dmain, SQLsafe autmatically assigns the nn-trusted prt (CustmPrt + 1). Fr example, if the custm prt is 6000, the prt used fr cmmunicatins in nntrusted dmains will be 6001.

31 Sftware requirements The SQLsafe cmpnents have the fllwing general sftware requirements, as well as specific requirements utlined in the fllwing sectins.

The Return On Investment (ROI) calculatr bases yur ROI n the ttal cst f wnership f yur strage devices multiplied by the amunt f disk space savings yu realize using SQLsafe. SQLsafe defaults t the cmmnly used estimate f $200 per GB f strage. Yu can change this estimate t reflect yur particular hardware cnfiguratin.

56 Manage debug settings The Advanced Debug Settings display additinal debug selectins fr trubleshting the Backup Agent running n the selected SQL Server cmputer. Yu can als set the lg file characteristics and maximum size depending n what issue yu want t trublesht. It is recmmended that yu change these settings based n guidance frm Idera supprt. A rlling lg allws yu t create a lg files that "rll" when they reach the maximum file size r the service is restarted, meaning that when the max size/restart ccurs, it deletes the ldest infrmatin and lgs the newest. This feature helps yu avid a large, cumbersme lg file. T change the debug settings: 1. In the navigatin pane, click SQLsafe Agents. 2. Right-click the apprpriate SQL Server instance. 3. Click Prperties frm the cntext menu. 4. Click the Advanced buttn. 5. Make the necessary changes, and then click OK. Hw d I access debug settings? T manage yur debug settings, click SQLsafe Agents in the navigatin pane. Right-click the name f the SQL Server instance fr which yu want t manage debug settings, and then select Prperties. Click the Advanced buttn. Once yu make the apprpriate changes, click OK n the Advanced Debug Settings. Make sure t select Enable Debug Mde n the SQLsafe Agent Prperties, and then click OK r debugging is nt enabled. What lg file settings can I change? If yu enable debug mde, SQLsafe creates a lg file based n the settings in the Rll Lg fields. Yu can chse ne f the fllwing ptins fr the lg file: N Maintains the debug lg as a single file that is unlimited in size. This ptin allws SQLsafe t capture diagnstic infrmatin ver an extended perid f time. Yur lg file may becme very large and shuld be mnitred t avid any issues with file size. TIP D nt enable N unless abslutely necessary. Use N nly when the prblem being diagnsed ccurs very infrequently and is nt nticed in a timely manner. In almst all cases, increasing the size r number f files is sufficient fr trubleshting an issue and an unlimited file size is unnecessary. Yes and keep n file(s) Maintains the debug lg as a series f files that are limited in size and quantity. This ptin allws SQLsafe t capture diagnstic infrmatin ver a limited perid f time, depending n the size and quantity f files kept. When a lg file reaches the size limit r the service is restarted, SQLsafe renames the file and starts a new lg file. The lder the lg file, the higher the digit that exists at the end f the file name. Fr example, file x.lg.3 is mre recent than x.lg.4. When the lg file rlls ver and reaches the maximum quantity, SQLsafe deletes the ldest file and the next ldest file takes its place. Because the amunt f space used by the lgs is limited, this setting des nt require yu t mnitr the lg files. TIP A Yes ptin is the recmmended setting. Be aware that the amunt f histry retained is limited, and it may be pssible fr a prblem being diagnsed t be missed. If this may be the case, first increase the quantity f files retained, then increase the size if necessary. Increasing quantity befre size helps t maintain lg files that are smaller and easier t

Use this mde if yu d nt plan t track backup and restre status, r if yu plan t perfrm backup and restres thrugh the cmmand-line interface nly. This flexibility allws yu t easily integrate SQLsafe int yur existing backup and recvery infrastructure s yu can take advantage f SQLsafe features withut changing yur established prcesses.

68 Hw t chse the backup type SQLsafe supprts fur standard database backup types: Full Backup Differential Backup Transactin Lg Backup File Backup Yu can use a backup type exclusively r cmbine types t fit yur backup strategy. What is a full backup? A full backup creates a full cpy f the data in a database. Full backups usually run at regularly scheduled intervals and require mre strage space and time t cmplete. Full backups cpy data and transactin lg pages t the backup set. The backup is smaller than the database itself because unused space is nt retained. Full backups allw yu t restre yur database t its riginal state prir t backup. During the restratin f a full backup, the SQL Server instance being restred rlls back uncmmitted transactins. Use transactin lg backups t recver uncmmitted transactins. What is a differential backup? Differential backups recrd nly the data that changed since the last full backup. Cnsider using differential backups n active SQL Server instances where minimal database dwntime is critical. Smaller and faster differential backups allw yu t make mre frequent backups with less impact n yur server. Perfrming frequent backups helps maintain ptimal database availability and minimizes data lss risks. Differential backups allw yu t restre yur database t the last cmpleted differential backup. What is a transactin lg backup? A transactinal lg backup creates a cpy f the transactin lg file. It sequentially recrds all database transactins that ccurred since the last transactin lg backup. In cnjunctin with a full r differential database restre, restring a transactin lg backup allws yu t recver the database t the pint f failure r a specific time. Typically transactin lg backups d nt require intensive resurce usage and can be scheduled mre frequently than ther backup types. Ensure yu increase the frequency f yur transactin lg backups if yur database has a high transactin rate. Als, cnsider string critical transactin lg backups n fault-tlerant strage devices. While yu cannt execute a transactin lg backup during a full r differential backup, yu can during a file backup. Ensure yu create database r file backups befre backing up the transactin lg. The transactin lg cntains nly the database changes made after the creatin f the last backup. What is a file r filegrup backup? Backs up either individual files r all files in a filegrup within a database. Backing up single files r filegrups allws yu t restre nly crrupted files. Restring nly crrupted files increases recvery speed. Cnsider file and filegrup backups when yur database has ne r all f the fllwing attributes: Database size hinders regular full r differential backups Database can be unavailable fr shrt perids f time nly

69 Specific files are either regularly crrupted, are mre critical, r change mre frequently than thers Yu can back up files r filegrups and transactin lgs at the same time.

70 Hw t chse cmpressin and encryptin SQLsafe ffers a unique cmbinatin f state-f-the-art cmpressin and encryptin technlgies. These technlgies set SQLsafe apart and make it unique in the SQL Server backup arena. Yu designate the cmpressin rate necessary t match yur strage needs, and yu select the level f encryptin yu need t ensure data security within yur envirnment. Fr mre infrmatin n the cmpressin levels available, see Understand cmpressin levels and Understand IntelliCmpress ptins. Fr infrmatin n hw selecting the apprpriate cmpressin scheme reduces yur strage csts,see Understand Ttal Cst f Operatin (TCO) SQLsafe autmatically detects whether yur envirnment requires cmpliance with the Federal Infrmatin Prcessing Standard (FIPS), and then chses the apprpriate encryptin algrithm. Fr mre infrmatin, see Ensure FIPS cmpliance.

71 Ensure FIPS cmpliance Yu can use SQLsafe t back up and restre SQL Server databases in envirnments where Federal Infrmatin Prcessing Standard (FIPS) cmpliance is required. SQLsafe autmatically detects whether the target SQL Server instances require FIPS cmpliant encryptin. When this security setting is detected, SQLsafe uses the FIPS-cmpliant AES encryptin algrithms prvided by Micrsft. Fr mre infrmatin abut FIPS cmpliance, see the crrespnding Micrsft TechNet Web article (technet.micrsft.cm) and Micrsft Knwledge Base Article # (http://supprt.micrsft.cm/kb/811833). Hw d I knw whether my envirnment requires FIPS cmpliance? Ask yur Windws security administratr whether the FIPS system cryptgraphy setting has been enabled in the Lcal Security Plicy r a Grup Plicy that applies t the SQL Server cmputer. Are there additinal prduct requirements t supprt FIPS? N, FIPS cmpliance fr SQLsafe des nt require any additinal sftware t be installed.

72 Understand cmpressin levels SQLsafe allws yu t set the cmpressin rate suited t yur backup needs. Yu designate a default cmpressin level during the initial setup f SQLsafe. Any time prir t initiating a backup, yu can mdify yur cmpressin level. Hw d I chse the best cmpressin level fr my envirnment? The cmpressin level that is best fr yur envirnment depends n yur strage and perfrmance needs. Befre yu chse a cmpressin level, determine whether yu need maximum strage and cmpressin (lwer perfrmance) r maximum perfrmance (lwer cmpressin). Cmpressin rates and backup times depend n the fllwing factrs: Whether the SQL Server cmputer utilizes multiple prcessrs Whether yu are striping data t multiple backup files Available bandwidth n yur netwrk cnnectins Current prcessing lad, such as backing up multiple databases in the same jb The type f data yu are backing up (fr example, text cmpresses t a smaller size than binary data) Level 1 Lw cmpressin. Prvides high executin speed and minimal server lad. This cmpressin level typically prvides 75-90% cmpressin rates n text data. This cmpressin rate may significantly decrease if yu are backing up a database that cntains binary data r previusly cmpressed data.use this cmpressin level if yu want t perfrm fast backups, smetimes during business hurs, at the expense f a larger size. TIP In envirnments with a slw write speed, this level will nt prduce backups as fast as higher levels f cmpressin. Level 2 Medium cmpressin. Prvides gd data cmpressin while maintaining high-speed executin. This cmpressin level places a mderate lad n yur server t prvide increased cmpressin. This cmpressin level wrks well in envirnments with a gd balance between multi-prcessr servers (fr example, a 4- t 6-way SMP server) and IO speed. Use this cmpressin level if yur envirnment includes ne r mre f the fllwing cnditins: Yu want t increase cmpressin withut significantly impacting perfrmance Yu can schedule backups during ff-hurs, if needed Level 3 High cmpressin. Prvides a high level f cmpressin while slightly decreasing executin speed. This cmpressin level prvides significant reductin in backed up data size, while placing a higher lad n yur server. This cmpressin level wrks well fr nightly backups in envirnments with a pwerful multi-prcessr servers (fr example, an 8-way SMP server) where saving space is a high pririty. Use this cmpressin level if yur envirnment includes ne r mre f the fllwing cnditins:

73 Yu want t maximize cmpressin withut significantly impacting perfrmance Yu can schedule backups during ff-hurs, if needed Level 4 Ultra-high cmpressin. Prvides the highest level f cmpressin, t be used when saving space is critical. This cmpressin level places a high lad n yur server. T achieve acceptable run times, this level shuld be used n very pwerful servers with 8 r mre prcessrs and generally nly during ff-peak perids. Use this cmpressin level if reductin in backed up data size is yur primary bjective.

74 Understand encryptin levels SQLsafe allws yu t set the encryptin level mst apprpriate fr yur backup needs. During the initial setup f SQLsafe, yu can select a default encryptin level. Any time befre executing a backup, yu can strengthen r lessen the encryptin applied t the current backup. Yu must have a passwrd in rder t restre an encrypted backup. Fr security reasns, when yu generate a T-SQL r CLI script f an encrypted backup, SQLsafe des nt write the specified passwrd t the script. T successfully run the script, supply the apprpriate passwrd. SQLsafe als des nt stre encryptin passwrds and cannt recver lst r frgtten passwrds. TIP SQLsafe autmatically detects whether the target SQL Server instances require FIPS cmpliant encryptin. When this security setting is detected, SQLsafe uses the FIPS-cmpliant AES encryptin algrithms prvided by Micrsft. Fr mre infrmatin abut FIPS cmpliance, see Ensure FIPS cmpliance. SQLsafe encryptin ffers yu the fllwing encryptin methds, allwing yu t chse based n yur security needs: Nne Prvides the fastest executin speed and des nt encrypt backed up data. Advanced Encryptin Standard (AES) 128-bit Prvides a strng encryptin. The AES algrithm encrypts data in 128-bit blcks using a 128-bit key. Advanced Encryptin Standard (AES) 256-bit Prvides a strnger encryptin. The AES algrithm encrypts data in 128-bit blcks using a 256-bit key. This methd prvides mre secure encryptin than AES 128-bit.

75 Understand IntelliCmpress SQLsafe ffers IntelliCmpress cmpressin levels t maximize cmpressin perfrmance fr yur backups. Each time yu run a backup using an IntelliCmpress cmpressin level, SQLsafe analyzes yur backup data and determines the best algrithm t use. This custmizatin ptimizes the perfrmance, n matter hw the backup data may have changed since the last backup. Analyzing the data each time yu run a backup prvides the best cmpressin rate fr each backup, s yur data is cmpressed in the ptimal way each time, saving yu time and disk space. IntelliCmpress Optimize fr Speed (ispeed) Prvides maximum perfrmance by autmatically ptimizing fr speed. At each backup, SQLsafe selects a cmpressin rati that prvides the fastest backup in that envirnment. This cmpressin level meets mst strage and perfrmance needs. We recmmend this cmpressin level, particularly if yu are backing up databases that cntain text data. IntelliCmpress Optimize fr Size (isize) Prvides high cmpressin by autmatically ptimizing fr size. At each backup, SQLsafe selects the best mix f cmpressin and speed based n CPU pwer and read/write speed.

76 Hw script generatin wrks Yu can generate CLI and T-SQL scripts fr backup and restre peratins thrugh the Backup and Restre wizards. SQLsafe generates the CLI r T-SQL script using the settings yu specified fr the backup r restre peratin. CLI scripts can be run as a batch file frm the cmmand line prmpt. Generated CLI scripts use supprted ptins fr the backup and restre actins. T-SQL scripts can be run thrugh Query Analyzer r as a scheduled SQL Server jb. Generated T-SQL scripts leverage the SQLsafe XSP t execute backups and restres.

77 Generate script If yu need a cmmand line r T-SQL script fr yur backup r restre, SQLsafe prvides the Generate Script buttn t let yu generate CLI and T-SQL scripts fr these peratins. When yu use a wizard t run a backup r restre, SQLsafe disables this buttn until sufficient criteria exists t generate a script. SQLsafe generates the CLI r T-SQL script using the settings yu specified fr the backup r restre peratin. Hw d I generate script? Yu can generate script thrugh the Backup Wizard r the Restre Wizard nce yur settings prvide SQLsafe with enugh infrmatin t create the script. Click Generate Script, and SQLsafe displays cmmand line script by default. Click the T-SQL buttn and SQLsafe displays the script in T-SQL frmat. T retain yur script in either frmat, click the Save t a file r Cpy script t clipbard icn. SQLsafe als allws yu t use nrmal select, cut, cpy, and paste functinality directly n the displayed script.

78 Hw threads affect backups and restres By default, SQLsafe autmatically calculates the ptimal number f threads necessary t prcess a backup r restre peratin. Yu can calculate the number f threads fr yur envirnment based n the prcessrs available n the cmputer running the SQL Server databases yu want t backup. Cnsider perfrming several backups t find the apprpriate number f threads fr yur envirnment. T calculate the apprpriate number f threads fr yur envirnment, use the fllwing guidelines. Als cnsider ther lads n the SQL Server cmputer that may affect CPU perfrmance and availability. Number f CPUs Single prcessr 1 Multiple prcessrs Number f Threads (number f CPUs)-1 Yu can set the apprpriate number f threads when backing up a database thrugh the Management Cnsle. Yu can custmize the number f threads yu want SQLsafe t use when perfrming a backup r restre. A similar number f threads used in each peratin ensures that yu achieve the same perfrmance ptimizatin fr yur backups and restres. TIP Fr SQL Server 2000 instances, selecting 12 r mre threads can cause the backup peratin t fail.

79 Recver bjects using SQL virtual database SQLsafe integrates with SQL virtual database thrugh the Backup Wizard and Backup Plicy Wizard t prvide yu with a mre pwerful recvery slutin. SQL virtual database allws yu t: Recver any bject frm the backup file withut having t restre the database Analyze and reprt n bjects and permissins in backup files withut having t restre the database Access backup files as thugh they were read-nly databases When creating a backup r backup plicy, yu can check the ptin t generate metadata fr use by SQL virtual database. This metadata includes data files fr each database included in yur backup. Generating metadata is ptinal; SQL virtual database can attach SQLsafe backup files withut the metadata. Hwever, these data files imprve SQL virtual database perfrmance during the creatin f the virtual database. If yu have SQL virtual database installed, click Attach Virtual Database t launch the SQL virtual database Cnsle. Frm the Cnsle, yu can create virtual databases frm a single full backup file r multiple backup files. Yu can als create multiple virtual databases frm the same backup file, which allws yu t make virtual databases that include data frm different pints in time. Once created, the virtual databases can be fully managed and queried using Micrsft SQL Server Management Studi r anther database management tl. What is SQL virtual database? SQL virtual database is a pwerful ne-f-a-kind slutin that lets yu attach SQL Server backup files and query them like real databases. With its revlutinary, patent-pending technlgy, yu gain instant access t critical data in a backup file withut spending the time and strage previusly required fr restre. In minutes, yu can create a virtual database and then use any native SQL Server r third party tls t query and extract the data yu need. Fr mre infrmatin abut SQL virtual database, see the SQLvdb nline Help. Are there disk space recmmendatins fr the SQL virtual database metadata? Use the fllwing table t help yu set aside the apprpriate amunt f disk space fr the virtual database metadata SQLsafe generates. Typically, this metadata requires nly a fractin f the disk space cnsumed by a fully restred backup. Size f Backup Additinal Disk Space 1 TB 105 MB 500 GB 51 MB 100 GB 10 MB 1 GB 105 KB 500 MB 51 KB Fr mre infrmatin abut the virtual data files that SQL virtual database creates, see the SQLvdb nline Help.

80 Autmate Backups and Restres A SQLsafe plicy cnsists f a set f databases fr which a set f disaster recvery peratins will be perfrmed accrding t a defined schedule. Backup plicies allw yu t quickly and easily schedule backups fr large sets f databases that have similar needs. Lg shipping plicies allw yu t schedule the synchrnizatin f transactin lgs between a primary database and ne r mre secndary databases. Restre plicies allw yu t schedule the rutine recvery f a specific database. Yu can use plicies t enfrce crprate standards r Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements. Create a backup plicy Create a lg shipping plicy Create a restre plicy Hw d I access plicies? T view status f any plicy, click Plicies in the navigatin pane, and then select the apprpriate plicy listed in the tree pane. SQLsafe prvides an at-a-glance recrd f yur plicy statuses. Yu can view infrmatin abut all yur plicies (per type) r view the status f an individual plicy. Yu can als create new plicies r edit existing plicies frm these views.

81 Deply maintenance plans using SQLsafe Yu can use the SQLsafe lg shipping, backup, and restre plicies t autmate and enfrce yur disaster recvery requirements r Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Nte that SQLsafe n lnger prvides the Maintenance Plan Cnversin Utility.

82 Backup plicies Backup plicies allw yu t define backup maintenance plans acrss multiple SQL Server instances in yur enterprise. These instances can reside n ne r mre physical servers. SQLsafe ffers backup plicies, restre plicies, and lg shipping plicies t address different needs. What is a backup plicy? A backup plicy cnsists f a list f databases yu want t back up, a set f backup peratins t be perfrmed n thse databases, and a set f schedules accrding t which the backups will be perfrmed. Yu can chse t create the assciated jbs t run n a specific schedule, run n demand (execute the jbs manually frm the Management Cnsle), r yu can chse t define yur plicy fr mnitring purpses nly. Yu can then mnitr the status f each backup, all frm a single pint f cntact in the Management Cnsle. Hw d I incrprate backup strategies in my plicies? Implementing a plicy requires that yu have a clear understanding f yur backup strategy. T determine a backup strategy t use, cnsider the fllwing recvery mdel requirements. Mdel Full Backup? Differential Backup? Transactin Lg Backup? File r Filegrup Backup? Simple Mdel Required Optinal N/A N/A Full Mdel Required Optinal Required Optinal Bulk-Lgged Mdel Required Optinal Required Optinal What cnstitutes a gd backup strategy? Cnsider using all fur backup types t maximize yur recvery and minimize yur data lss. A basic backup strategy fulfills the fllwing needs: 1. Creatin f regularly scheduled database backups 2. Creatin f frequent differential backups between full backups 3. Creatin f transactin lg backups mre frequently than differential backups Database backup creatin depends n server activity and data sensitivity. Ensure yu implement a strategy and create plicies that back up bth user databases and system databases. Hw d backup plicies help me? Backup plicies allw yu t plan and schedule yur SQL Server backup maintenance, as well as mnitr its success and failures, all frm a single pint f cntact at the Management Cnsle. By allwing the applicatin and scheduling f a set f backup peratins acrss all f yur SQL Server instances enterprise-wide, SQLsafe plicies make updating yur maintenance plans a quick and easy prcess.

83 Create a backup plicy The SQLsafe Backup Plicy wizard allws yu t create backup maintenance plans acrss yur enterprise. A SQLsafe Backup Plicy is defined as a set f databases fr which a set f backup peratins will be perfrmed accrding t a defined schedule. If yu chse t create backup jbs fr this plicy, SQLsafe creates SQL Server jbs fr the specified backups. T get started with the Backup Plicy wizard: 1. Name the plicy. 2. Select the databases yu want t back up. 3. Select backup ptins. 4. Specify where yu want t stre the backup files. 5. Schedule when and hw ften yu want the backup t ccur. 6. Get ntificatins abut the plicy status.

84 Backup Plicy Wizard - Name the plicy The General tab allws yu t specify the basic prperties f the backup plicy. Why shuld I specify a name r descriptin? Yu are required t enter a unique name fr each plicy. Bth the name and descriptin will appear in the status messages fr yur plicies. Using a meaningful name and descriptin will allw yu t mre easily identify prblems when they ccur. Fr example, cnsider specifying a descriptin that will help yu later chse the crrect backup t restre during a disaster recvery situatin. Which actin shuld I chse? Chse the actin that best reflects hw yu want t use this plicy. Fr example,yu can cnfigure SQLsafe t create jbs that perfrm rutine backup peratins n yur SQL Server instances. Creating jbs allws yu t enfrce cnsistent backup settings acrss yur envirnment. By default, SQLsafe will mnitr the status f any backup peratin that meets the criteria f yur plicy.

85 Backup Plicy Wizard - Select databases Use the Membership tab t select which SQL Server instances and databases yu want t mnitr with this plicy. Yu can als exclude ne r mre databases frm this plicy. T make yur selectins, click Add/Remve Instances, and then chse the specific instances and databases.

86 Backup Plicy Wizard - Cnfigure ptins The Optins tab allws yu t enter the backup types and ptins fr each peratin included the backup plicy. What infrmatin is n this tab? Fr each backup peratin yu include in the backup plicy, yu can select cmpressin, encryptin, and verificatin ptins, enable bject-level recvery, and set additinal advanced ptins such as remving inactive entries frm the transactin lg. When yu chse t encrypt an archive, yu must designate a passwrd. Fr security reasns, SQLsafe des nt stre this passwrd. Ensure yu remember the passwrd yu select. What types f cmpressin algrithms are available? Nne IntelliCmpress, ptimize fr size (isize) IntelliCmpress, ptimize fr speed (ispeed) Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 TIP Backup peratins using Level 1 cmplete fastest but achieve the least amunt f cmpressin. Level 4 achieves maximum cmpressin but the backup peratin may take lnger. Fr mre infrmatin abut backup cmpressin, see Hw t chse cmpressin and encryptin. What types f encryptin algrithms are available? Nne AES (128-bit) AES (256-bit) If yur SQL Server envirnment requires FIPS cmpliance, use the AES encryptin ptin. Fr mre infrmatin, see Ensure FIPS cmpliance. Why can't I see the ptins fr all the backup types? The ptins fr each backup type are hidden unless the backup type is selected fr the plicy. Fr mre infrmatin abut backup types, see Understand backup types. What additinal ptins are available? Fr each type f backup yu select, yu can als specify the fllwing advanced ptins: Optins Verify the integrity f the backup when cmplete Descriptin Perfrms a data integrity check after the backup is created. SQLsafe verifies the integrity f the data files in the backup set created by this backup. Verifying the backup helps identify ptential issues that culd ccur when restring these data files.

87 Optins Generate maps Include database lgins in backup file Thread Cunt Transactin Lg Checksum: Generate Checksum: Ignre Errrs Backup: Cpy nly Backup: Read-write filegrups Descriptin Generates maps cntaining metadata fr each database included in yur backup file. Depending n the number f transactins cmpleted since yur last backup, generating maps may impact the perfrmance f the backup peratin. Generating maps is ptinal, but must exist in the backup file fr InstantRestre t accept and restre that file. SQL virtual database can attach SQLsafe backup files withut the metadata, but the data files imprve SQL vdb perfrmance during creatin f the virtual database. Fr mre infrmatin, see Recver bjects using SQL virtual database. This ptin is selected by default. Cpies SQL lgin infrmatin fr the selected databases, including credentials and privileges, when the backup files are written. T help ensure the security f yur SQL Server database, SQLsafe encrypts the lgin infrmatin. This ptin is available fr full backups nly. Allws yu t specify hw many threads yu want SQLsafe t use t distribute the backup peratin acrss multiple prcessrs n the target SQL Server cmputer. Use this setting t ptimize backup perfrmance. When the resultant backup file is restred, SQLsafe uses the same thread setting t ensure cnsistent perfrmance. Select Aut t have SQLsafe determine the ptimal thread cunt fr yur envirnment. Remves all cmpleted transactins frm the transactin lg after SQLsafe finishes the backup. Generates a checksum fr the backup file. Ignres any errrs frm the generated checksum. If checksum errrs are encuntered, this ptin indicates that SQLsafe shuld cntinue t back up this database. Specifies a cpy-nly backup. This is a cpy f the database and cannt be used as part f a restre strategy. Specifies a partial backup, which includes the primary filegrup and any read-write secndary filegrups. Readwrite filegrups are nt supprted by SQL virtual database. If this ptin is selected, the Generate metadata ptin will be disabled. Additinally, backups created with the read-write filegrups ptin cannt be used by SQL virtual database t create virtual databases.

88 Backup Plicy Wizard - Select lcatin The Lcatins tab allws yu t specify the backup lcatin fr each peratin yu include in the backup plicy. What infrmatin is n the Lcatins tab? Fr each peratin yu have included in the backup plicy, yu can specify the lcatin type, full path in which t stre the backup file, an ptinal husecleaning schedule fr existing disk archives, and the backup file extensin. What d I d n the Lcatins tab? Fr a disk backup, brwse fr r enter the directry in which t stre the backup file. Yu can use the supplied macrs in the way best suited t yur strage needs. If yu want t limit the lifetime f yur backup sets created by the plicy, yu can select the ptin that remves files lder than the specified time. Fr a TSM backup, brwse fr r enter the high level directry fr the tape file. Yu can use the supplied macrs in the way best suited t yur strage needs. Brwse fr r enter the lcatin f the TSM cnfiguratin file. What d I d if I dn t have an existing archive? If yu d nt specify an existing archive, SQLsafe creates a new backup set with the name yu specify. The lcatin entered fr each backup type must be valid fr all SQL Server instances. What types f backup lcatins can I use? SQLsafe supprts the fllwing lcatin types: Back up t a single file n the lcal cmputer r a netwrk share Back up t multiple striped files n the lcal cmputer r a netwrk share Back up t tape using Tivli Strage Manager Can I change the default file lcatins? SQLsafe autmatically ppulates the path using several available variables, depending n lcatin type. Yu can mdify this path t suit yur needs, taking advantage f all the available variables. Hw d I keep my backups running despite netwrk errrs? Select Retry writing backup files after netwrk errrs, and then click Cnfigure t change the default settings. By default, SQLsafe will retry the backup peratin every 10 secnds and then fail after 5 minutes (300 secnds) f cntinuus errrs. Als, ver the curse f the peratin, SQLsafe allws a ttal f 60 minutes in which t retry the backup befre stpping the peratin. This ptin is nt available when backing up t tape using Tivli Strage Manager. Hw d I mirrr the backups this plicy creates? Click Mirrr Archives, and then specify where yu want the mirrred files t be stred. Fr each mirrr, SQLsafe creates a cpy f the backup archive set. Yu can specify up t 2 mirrrs fr each backup peratin. Keep in mind that creating mirrrs can impact the perfrmance f yur backup peratin. If yu want t stp the backup peratin when mirrr lcatin is unavailable, select the crrespnding ptin.

SQLsafe enables SQL Server t immediately begin the transactinal part f a database restre, deferring the data file (MDF) restratin until after the database is nline. SQL Server cntinues t handle all transactin lg (LDF) restratin activity. When the restre prcess is cmplete and the database is nline, SQLsafe takes ver and restres the remaining data t the data files in the backgrund. If SQL Server needs data nt yet restred, SQLsafe delivers the data t SQL Server directly frm the backup. Because SQLsafe never interferes in the SQL Server lg peratins, ACID cmpliance fr yur databases is nt affected. When SQLsafe cmpletes data file restratin, it remves itself frm all I/O activity f the database and leaves behind a database identical t ne restred with a traditinal restre prcess. As a result, SQLsafe is n lnger required t access the database. TIP TIP Yu cannt use the InstantRestre feature n any versin f the Windws 2000 perating system and Micrsft SQL Server 7. SQLsafe 7.0 includes a mini-filter driver t supprt the InstantRestre feature. The driver, named SQLsafeFilterDriver, allws SQL Server t access database data while SQLsafe is perfrming an instant restre. The driver is nly used during an instant restre and is n lnger necessary nce the database is cmpletely restred. Hw t enable InstantRestre Yu first must enable the InstantRestre feature. Because sme users may feel uneasy installing a device driver n their systems, InstantRestre is disabled by default. Yu can enable r disable the InstantRestre feature quickly depending n what task yu are perfrming: If yu are viewing yur SQL Server instances in the Servers tree, right-click the instance yu want t restre, and then select Enable SQLsafe InstantRestre r Disable SQLsafe InstantRestre. If yu are in the SQLsafe Database Restre wizard, cmplete the wizard up t the Restre Type tab. If an InstantRestre peratin is in prgress when a user attempts t disable these cmpnents, SQLsafe displays a warning message. Eligible backups The InstantRestre feature is available fr nly a database backup that is: A SQLsafe backup archive with backup metadata (maps). Because InstantRestre allws SQL Server t immediately access the data in a backup, the prcess needs additinal infrmatin abut the backup which is nt present in a native backup file. Please nte that this infrmatin is als missing in SQLsafe backups that are written directly t Tivli Strage Manager (TSM). A cmplete database restre. InstantRestre can restre a database using any nrmal restre chain starting with a full backup. InstantRestre des nt supprt partial restres such as file restres r restring a database with the NO RECOV- ERY r STANDBY ptins. Mnitring yur instant restres As SQLsafe perfrms an instant restre, yu can mnitr its prgress using the SQLsafe Management Cnsle r via alerting. InstantRestre is a new type f restre peratin and appears in the Management Cnsle status grid like traditinal backup r

136 restre peratins. The InstantRestre peratin is tracked with the fllwing tw peratin types: InstantRestre The InstantRestre peratin tracks the prgress f the entire database restre prcess. The prgress bar increments t 100% fr the initial restre prgress until the database cmes nline. When the initial restre cmpletes and the database is nline, the status changes t Online and the cell changes t light green. SQLsafe then displays a new line fr the Hydrate peratin. Hydrate The Hydrate peratin tracks the prgress f the backgrund restre prcess. The prgress bar increments t 100% fr the backgrund restre prgress until the restre is cmplete. When the database restre is cmplete, the status f bth the InstantRestre and Hydrate peratins changes t Cmplete and the cell changes t dark green. Instant Restre peratins include the fllwing tw statuses t indicate imprtant milestnes f the peratin: Online The Online status indicates that the database is nline and ready fr use. Halted The Halted status indicates that an event interrupted the InstantRestre prcess. A netwrk issue between SQLsafe and the backup archive can interrupt an instant restre. Because InstantRestre allws changes t the database while the restre is ccurring, the database is nt deleted if an issue ccurs during Hydratin. If such an event ccurs, the database transitins t a read-nly state t prevent the system and users frm writing additinal data t the database. At this pint, yu can restre access t the backup archives and the instant restre can safely resume. Handling errrs during Hydratin If the hydratin prcess is interrupted fr any reasn: The InstantRestre peratin transitins t the Halted state. The Hydrate peratin transitins t the Halted state. SQLsafe displays an errr message stating that hydratin is interrupted. If an errr ccurs during the InstantRestre peratin prir t the beginning f the Hydrate prcess, SQLsafe displays nly the InstantRestre peratin with an errr status, and includes the errr message fr the failure. SQLsafe includes the fllwing failure scenaris that may ccur during an instant restre. Cmpnent Failure Reslutin Server Crashes If the server suffers a catastrphic crash and is n lnger available, n recvery is available. Server Rebts If the server rebts because f a pwer failure, autmatic sftware update, r ther similar situatin, and cmes back nline crrectly, the SQLsafe Filter Service restarts and then resumes hydratin. Server Runs ut f resurces If the server runs ut f memry r ther resurces, and the SQLsafe Filter Service cannt allcate the additinal resurces during hydratin, SQLsafe uses the fllwing steps:

137 Cmpnent Failure Reslutin Server Suffers a disk failure 1. If the ffending prcess is identified: a. The user must stp the prcess. b. The user can manually restart the SQLsafe Filter Service (if stpped). c. If hydratin des nt resume nce the SQLsafe Filter Service restarts, the user can manually restart the peratin. 2. If the ffending prcess is nt identified, the user may rebt the server. If the database r InstantRestre supprt files is crrupted by a disk failure, n recvery is available. Service Restarts If ne r all f the fllwing items restarts, hydratin shuld resume after the restart is cmplete: SQL Server SQLsafe Backup Agent SQLsafe Filter Service If the database did nt g int Suspect mde during this prcess, hydratin resumes frm the pint where it left ff when the SQLsafe Filter Service restarted. If the database is in Suspect mde, the SQLsafe Filter Service brings the database ut f Suspect mde, and then resumes hydratin. Filter Service Crashes If the SQLsafe Filter Service crashes, hydratin resumes nce the service restarts. If the SQLsafe Filter Service crashes again, yu may need t recver any new data added since the first crash. Backup file Is crrupt If the backup file is crrupt r there is a read prblem when accessing the netwrk, the SQLsafe Filter Service fails t decmpress during hydratin. If the backup file is crrupt, and yu have anther cpy f the backup file, yu can restart hydratin using the nn-crrupt backup file. If the issue is a read prblem when accessing the netwrk, yu can restart hydratin nce yu address the netwrk issue. Backup file Backup file Is inaccessible due t a netwrk failure Is inaccessible due t a lack f access permissins If the backup file is inaccessible due t a netwrk failure, InstantRestre attempts a retry. If the retry fails, and the maximum retry attempts is reached, the Hydratin peratin status transitins t the Failure state. Once yu crrect the netwrk issue r relcate the backup file, yu can resume hydratin. If the Hydratin fails, yu may need t restart InstantRestre. If the SQLsafe Filter Service restarts and is unable t pen the backup file because the accunt attempting t read the file des nt have the prper permissins, yu must prvide the accunt permissin, and then resume hydratin. Des SQLsafe include new characteristics specific t the InstantRestre feature? Yes, there are new details in SQLsafe t supprt InstantRestre. Fr supprted platfrms, the fllwing cmpnents were added t SQLsafe t supprt InstantRestre: SQLsafe Filter Service (SQLsafeFilterService.exe) The SQLsafe Filter Service is respnsible fr handling I/O requests frm SQL Server and perfrming the backgrund database restre (hydratin).

138 SQLsafe Filter Driver (SQLsafeFilterDriver.sys) The SQLsafe Filter Driver is respnsible fr intercepting I/O requests fr databases that have active InstantRestre peratins under way. When an instant restre cmpletes the driver ttally disengages frm all I/O activity f the database and is n lnger needed. This device driver utilizes the Micrsft mini-filter driver technlgy. D I have t use the cnsle fr InstantRestre? N, the Cnsle is nt the nly place where yu can use the InstantRestre feature. Yu can execute an InstantRestre via T-SQL script using either the SQLsafe CLI r XSP cmmands. T use the XSP InstantRestre cmmand, see the sample XSP scripts available frm the Prgrams menu. Example CLI cde snippets that use the InstantRestre cmmand Yu can als perfrm an instant restre thrugh the CLI. Additinal ptins can be set in the SQLsafe Restre wizard, frm which yu can generate a CLI script that includes the specified wizard settings. SQLsafeCmd.exe InstantRestre <database> <full_backup> -diff <diff_backup> -lg <lg_backup> The fllwing three ptins are specific t a backup set: BackupFile (if the backup set is striped) BackupSet Passwrd (r -EncryptedRestrePasswrd) Where these ptins appear in the cmmand determines t which backup set they are applied. When yu encunter ne f these ptins, it is applied t the full if n -Diff/-Lg ptin is yet encuntered, therwise it is applied t the mst recent -Diff/-Lg. Fr example, if yu want t instantly restre the fllwing backups: Full backup, 2 stripes, backupset 2, encryptin key "full" Diff backup, 2 stripes, backupset 3, encryptin key "diff" Lg backup, 2 stripes, backupset 4, encryptin key "lg" Use the cmmand: SQLsafeCmd InstantRestre Nrthwind "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Full (1 f 2).safe" -BackupFile "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Full (2 f 2).safe" -BackupSet 2 -Passwrd "full" -Diff "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Diff (1 f 2).safe" -BackupFile "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Diff (2 f 2).safe" - BackupSet 3 -Passwrd "diff" -Lg "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Lg (1 f 2).safe" -BackupFile "C:\Backup\Nrthwind_Lg (2 f 2).safe" -BackupSet 4 -Passwrd "lg" Fr mre infrmatin abut available instant restre ptins, see the usage statements in the CLI Help.

139 Restre Wizard - Select target instance The Target tab allws yu t yu select the instance t which yu will restre the database. What infrmatin is n the Target tab? On the Target tab, yu can select the instance t which yu will restre the selected databases. What d I d if my instance is nt listed? If yur instance is nt displayed in the SQL Server drp-dwn list, yu can chse t add a new instance by clicking the Register SQL Server buttn. Fr mre infrmatin, see Register an instance. What d I d if I have users cnnected t the database? Yu can instruct SQLsafe t discnnect users frm the databases befre perfrming the restre. T d s, select the Discnnect users befre restre ptin. What des verify nly mean? This restre ptin helps yu ensure yur backup peratins are successful withut actually restring yur data. Cnsider using this restre verificatin ptin n all critical backups after executing the backup peratin.

140 Restre Wizard - Select the databases yu want t restre The Databases tab allws yu t specify the databases yu want t restre and the general lcatin f the crrespnding archive files. Yu can select: Whether the archive file was written t the lcal file system Whether a netwrk share is available n a remte file system Whether the backup was perfrmed using TSM When restring frm a TSM Server, brwse fr the crrect database archive. Yu can change the TSM cnnectins settings t verride the values set in the client ptins file.

141 Restre Wizard - Select the backup sets The Backup Sets tab allws yu t chse which backup sets yu want t use t restre the selected databases. What infrmatin is n the Backup Sets tab? Fr each database yu have selected t restre, the backup set listing is ppulated with the available backup sets frm the Repsitry. Yu can chse the specific backup sets yu want t restre, r yu can select a pint in time t which yu want t restre data. T restre mre than ne database, select a backup set fr each database. What d I d n the Backup Sets tab? Fr each database yu are restring, yu can chse ne f three methds t select the apprpriate backup sets: Time slider Manual selectin f a specific pint-in-time Manual selectin f the backup set What is the benefit f using the pint-in-time slider? When yu select a pint in time by clicking in the time slider, the crrespnding backup sets are autmatically selected. This ensures yu are using the apprpriate backup sets and files t restre the data yu need. SQLsafe des nt restre data timestamped with dates later than the pint in time yu specify. Hw d I use the pint-in-time slider? Depending n where yu click, yu can cntrl which backups re used in this restre. Click lcatin Within a full backup marker Within a differential backup marker Abve a transactinal lg marker Within a transactinal lg marker Result Selectin f the full backup set. Selectin f the last knwn full backup, as well as the differential backup. Slider snaps t the end f that lg file and yu will select the last knwn full backup and the entire transactinal lve file. Selectin f the last knwn full backup and all the transactins up t the specific pint-in-time yu clicked n. Why wuld I select a specific pint-in-time instead f using the slider? Because the precisin f the slider may nt suit yur needs, yu can manually enter the specific pint in time t restre t. This autmatically selects the apprpriate backup sets while prviding pin-pint time accuracy. Hw d I manually select backup sets? Yu can als chse t manually select which backup sets t restre. If yu chse this ptin, yu must als select the specific backup set t restre. T pick specific backup files, click the Backup Files buttn. Hw d I keep my restres running despite netwrk errrs?

142 Select Enable netwrk resiliency, and then click Cnfigure t change the default settings. By default, SQLsafe will retry the restre peratin every 10 secnds and then fail after 5 minutes (300 secnds) f cntinuus errrs. Als, ver the curse f the peratin, SQLsafe allws a ttal f 60 minutes in which t retry the restre befre stpping the peratin. Why is the Generate Script buttn enabled? Yu can generate a T-SQL r CLI script that will execute the restre peratin per the settings yu have defined in this wizard. Fr mre infrmatin abut generating scripts, see Hw script generatin wrks.

143 Restre Wizard - Select file name and lcatin The Database Files tab allws yu t enter the database files infrmatin fr the restred files. What infrmatin is n the Database Files tab? Fr each database yu have selected t restre, yu are required t specify the name fr the restred database, and the filename t which yu will restre the database. What d I d n the Database Files tab? Fr each database yu are restring, yu have several ways t select the restred database name and path. Yu can: Select target database frm drp-dwn list f existing databases Enter a new database name Enter a new database path Select restre ptins fr these files Edit the restre-as filename When yu select a database name frm the drp-dwn list, r edit the field, the restre-as filename is autmatically updated t reflect the new name. When yu change the database path, yu must click Apply in rder fr the changes t be reflected in the grid. Yu can als simply edit the filename in the grid. What actins can I perfrm n the Database Files tab? Actin Create a new database t restre Change the path f the target database Ensure the selected backup files are restred, even if that means verwriting an existing database Restre the SQL lgins assciated with the selected databases Ignre any errrs frm the generated checksum.

148 Reprt n Backup and Restre Operatins SQLsafe Reprts (Reprts) prvides several built-in reprts that allw yu t quickly and access backup and restre infrmatin. Each reprt gives detailed infrmatin abut backups and restres perfrmed by SQLsafe.

149 Available reprts Yu can generate any f the fllwing reprts. These reprts help yu better understand and track backup and restre peratins, such as measuring the perfrmance f individual backups r mnitring strage cnsumptin. Use these reprts t practively identify and meet the needs f yur changing SQL Server envirnment. SQLsafe Backup Owners This reprt lists the backups and assciated wners fr all SQL Server instances and databases registered with SQLsafe. Use this reprt t mnitr backup activity and enfrce database security. Fr example, yu verify that the apprpriate database administratrs are executing backup peratins n the databases they wn. SQLsafe Backup Perfrmance This reprt prvides backup perfrmance statistics fr the selected SQL Server instances and databases. Use this reprt t track and cmpare backup perfrmance. SQLsafe Backup Size Chart This reprt charts SQLsafe backup sizes fr a specific database ver time. Use this reprt t track hw the backup size fr a particular database has changed. SQLsafe Backup Stre Utilizatin This reprt indicates hw much backup strage space is currently used by the selected SQL Server instances and databases. SQLsafe Large Backup This reprt lists any SQLsafe backup that is larger than the specified size. Use this reprt t identify backups that culd cmprmise strage plicies. SQLsafe Last Backup This reprt prvides details abut the last database backup executed n the selected SQL Server instances and databases. Use this reprt t mnitr r trublesht recent backup peratins. SQLsafe restred databases This reprt prvides details abut all database restre activity that ccurred in a given date range. Use this reprt t track restre peratins acrss yur SQL Server envirnment. SQLsafe strage savings reprt This reprt summarizes the strage cst savings yu have gained by using SQLsafe. This savings is calculated using the fllwing frmula: (saved MB)/(1024 x cst per MB). Use this reprt t understand ne f the many benefits f using SQLsafe.

150 Custmize reprts Yu can custmize any f the built-in SQLsafe reprts r develp new reprts that fit yur unique needs. If yu decide t custmize these reprts, cnsider the fllwing best practices: Saving yur new and mdified reprts t a separate flder Using a different file name fr mdified reprts Fr mre infrmatin abut develping custm reprts, see the Reprting Services Bks Online.

151 Hw reprts wrk Reprts seamlessly integrates int Micrsft SQL Server Reprting Services (Reprting Services). Fr each built-in SQLsafe reprt, the Reprts Installer utility deplys Reprt Definitin Language (RDL) files t the Reprt Server cmputer. The RDL files define the reprt layut and parameters, using the data surce (SQLsafe Repsitry) yu specified during install. Reprting Services autmatically acknwledges these files, allwing yu t immediately generate and view reprts n imprted data using the Reprt Manager Web interface. Fr mre infrmatin abut the Reprting Services architecture, see the Reprting Services Bks Online.

152 Hw t run reprts With the apprpriate permissins, yu can generate and view data directly frm the Reprt Manager Web interface. T use Reprt Manager t run reprts: 1. Start Internet Explrer, and then type in the Address field. Fr example, if yu are running Reprting Services n the lab01 server cmputer, type 2. On the Reprting Services hme page, click SQLsafe. 3. Click the reprt yu want t run.

153 Deply reprts Yu can implement Reprts n any cmputer running Micrsft SQL Server 2000 Reprting Services (Reprting Services) r later. The fllwing installatin scenari illustrates hw yu can implement Reprts in an existing SQL Server envirnment that uses a dedicated Reprt Server.
