Performing SQL Server backups, outside of the Blackbaud Management Console (Blackbaud Management Console), is beyond our scope of support.

    Refer to Microsoft's SQL Server 2000 Books Online, post a question to the Database Administrator/Technical forum, or contact a qualified technical consultant for assistance.

    • In SQL Server Enterprise Manager (SQL Server 2000) or Management Studio (SQL Server 2005, 2008 and 2008 R2), verify the Data Files and Transaction Log are set to Automatically Grow with Unrestricted file growth
    • Consider changing the database options from Full Recovery mode to Simple Recovery mode.
       

      Note: If unable to switch to Simple Recovery mode, schedule more frequent log file backups and shrink the log file after the log file backup is done. Backing up the transaction log file dumps the contents of the log file into the database file.
