The Blackbaud Management Console (Blackbaud Management Console) is the only supported method for performing database backups and performing other database tasks. It is also used to manage the Deploy Kit that is used to install the workstation components and monitor updates (except for The Researcher's Edge).


Using the Enterprise Manager to manage your Blackbaud database is not supported.
 


If using SQL Server Standard or Enterprise Editions, refer to How to use SQL Server Standard or Enterprise Editions instead of the MSDE version? (BB117766) for supported the method of attaching the database to the Blackbaud Management Console using another SQL Server instance.
Please contact the appropriate software vendor or IT professional for assistance with this process or issue, which is beyond Blackbaud's scope of support.
