    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    Backing up a QC project is merely a database task. When the project database is backed up so is the project. However, the project repository is located on the file system. Any back up routine can take care of backing up the QA project repository.

    Cheers~

    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    According to the QC 10 Admin Guide, Backing up QC 10 projects should including two steps: 1, Backing up SQL Server schema, 2, Backing up QC project repository.

    Any ideas how to back up Sql Server 2005 Database schema?
    Should I just let DBA do this for me?

    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    The schema is only a database. Usually called qcsiteadmindb. Back that up with the rest of the project databases. And yes, I'd let the DBA perform that task. As far as backing up the repository I'd check with your system administrators to see what they do to perform back-ups of the file servers. Then ask them to also back up your repository.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers~

    You can do the following which includes all the data and schema. Just Export the Project. That takes care of everything. But the project has to be shutdown.

    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    Yes, I know that. Users has to be disconnected when exporting the project. It doesn't seem to be a good option.

    Thanks though.

    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    For others it might be the best option.
    It cuts out the middleman and enables to restore single projects easily. So it depends on your backup strategy, domain/project structure, repository setup, etc.
    Also: Both options don't exclude each other. You can run one for 'standard disaster' recovery and the other for 'business disasters' [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    mkasprzak, thanks to your reply.
    Yeah, exporting the project is really convenient and easy to restore the project.
    I'm a little confused about 'standard disaster' and 'business disasters'. Could you plz elaborate that?

    Re: How to backup QC 10.0 projects?

    Yeah, sorry for being ambiguous.

    I don't think this is an official definition, but "Standard Disaster" for me is anything between a thermonuclear war and a general loss of data because of technical reasons.

    A "Business Disaster" for me is a tester who comes back from holidays and accidentaly deletes test lab content from his own project, so that an important release test cannot be completed. In such a situation I like .qcp as (in my setting) it allows me to quickly restore his project only or to create another instance for him to choose if he really wants everything back.

    The point I was really trying to make is that it is difficult to assess which solution is better, without taking into consideration your specific setup.
