Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Backing up system databases, part of Microsoft SQL Server 2014: Backup and Recovery.
- [Voiceover] In this section, we'll talk about…backing up the system databases in Microsoft SQL Server.…Most of the system databases can be backed up,…and we use the same tools and commands…as we would use for our user databases.…The master database should be backed up regularly…as should MSDB.…The model database doesn't need to be…backed up very often.…It should be backed up when changed, and typically,…people don't change the model database too often.…TempDB cannot be backed up.…
As its name implies, it is only a temporary holding place.…It is completely erased and rebuilt…every time we stop and start SQL Server,…so if you have a problem with TempDB,…your solution would not be to restore from backup.…Your solution instead would be…to stop and restart the server.…Therefore, a TempDB cannot be backed up,…but other than TempDB,…the other three system databases…should be backed up on a regular basis.…
