SQL 2008 R2 Backup and Restore

To allow for recoverability of Lync Server and to ensure that information such as CDR records and IM archives are available for long periods of time, regularly back up the SQL databases associated with those functions.

There are many ways to back up SQL, including native Windows Server 2008 backup, SQL-based jobs that output the DB into a flat file, and third-party backup solutions that support SQL 2008 R2.

Note

For the purposes of this chapter, we cover Windows Server 2008’s native backup and SQL 2008 R2’s native backup.
