Database Configuration

RecoveryManager Plus allows you to configure periodic backups of the database that comes built-in with it. The product also allows you to migrate from the built-in database (PostgreSQL) to MS SQL.


Using this option you can change the built-in database server (PostgreSQL) of RecoveryManager Plus to MS SQL Server or another instance of a PostgreSQL Server.

Important points to remember


Steps to migrate database

  1. Log in to RecoveryManager Plus as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to Admin → Administration → Database Settings → Database Configuration.
  3. From the Select Database Server menu, select the database server that you want to change to.
  4. If you select PostgreSQL Server, then:
    • In the DB Server Name/IP and Port field, enter the host name or IP address and the port number of the PostgreSQL database server.
    • Enter the Username and Password of a user who has permission to create a new database.
  5. If you select MS SQL Server, then:
    • In the DB Server Name/IP and Port field, enter the host name or IP address and the port number of the MS SQL database server.
    • In the DB Server Instance field, select the SQL Server instance you want to use.
    • If you have already moved the bcp.exe and bcp.rll files, the same will be visible in the Select bcp.exe File and Select bcp.rll File fields. If not, click Browse and select the bcp.exe and bcp.rll files from SQL Server installed directory.
    • For Authentication, you can either use Windows credentials or a SQL Server user account.
    • If you want to use a SQL Server user account, then select SQL Authentication and enter the Username and Password.
    • If you want to use Windows authentication, select Windows Authentication, and enter the username and password of a Windows domain user account. To autofill the username and password of the user currently logged into the machine check the box against Use Default Windows Authentication.
    • Note: The user account used must have permission to create a database in the selected MS SQL Server.

  6. Check the box against Migrate Existing Data to copy the data from your old database to the new database.

    IMPORTANT: Leave this box unchecked only if you want to change the database of a fresh installation of RecoveryManager Plus.

  7. Click Save.
