Join Martin Guidry for an in-depth discussion in this video Performing an SQL backup with PowerShell, part of Designing Database Solutions for SQL Server 2012.
- Some administrators really like the command line…interface of PowerShell.…Other administrators really don't like it.…I believe that at a minimum every administrator…should know how to perform some emergency steps…on a SQL server using the command line interface.…The idea here is that if a server is so broken…that the graphical interface will no longer function.…There's still a chance you could get to a command line tool…and issue a few commands to either fix the server,…or more likely just to perform one last backup…so that you can then restore to a different server.…
So I feel that every administrator should know…how to perform a backup using the command line tools.…I'm gonna demonstrate that to you now…here inside of the PowerShell interface.…First I'll import the sqlps module.…Now I'm just going to use the cd command…to set the appropriate base location.…It's basically the name of my server and my instance.…This might be slightly different for you.…Now the command is fairly simple,…it's Backup-SqlDatabase.…
