    Re: Test Director 6.0 - Backup and Recovery

    What DB are you using? Do you have a Computer Ops, or some sort of mainframe computer people? Backing up is usually their job. But you could get a tape add-on for your server and back it up as often as you like. It depends on which DB you are using, where it's located, and how large is it.

    Upgrade. Your version is past it's sell by date. You will find much better performance on QC. These tools do not have built in backup support, but there are many tools for this for any given db.

    Re: Test Director 6.0 - Backup and Recovery

    Thanks Rich for ur apply. We are using MS access as databse which Test Director 6.0 use by default. Currentely we are backing up our prijects bug base by copying the TDComDir folder frequently. But what actually we need is to find a machenisum or steps throug which we restore the DB. we oftelt got an error message of Key Violation error and some time we lose bug base after it. if any one can provide any document or article which can help in backup and recovery steps and scenarios , it will be more helpful

    thanks

    Then your DB is on the same server as TD, in that case I would suggest just a batch file to grab, compress and copy the DB to a safe place. Most Windows Servers have a backup utility built in. You could utilize it and save the backup to another HD or machine. That would be the simplest. You'll have to learn how to set it up, but it is pretty intuitive. It can run at night, or weekends or whenever your TD is quiescent.
