Create a batch file on the server named adam_post.bat and add the following commands

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

rem To start an ADAM instance, type the following at the command prompt:

net start instance_name

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Create a Selection list with the ADAM install directory in it
  • Create a Calendar with the time you want to backup the client
  • Create a Option list with the pre and post commands listed above.
  • Create a schedule with the three things listed above to backup the ADAM Database.

 To Restore
 
  • Stop the ADAM DB
  • Restore the files
  • Start the ADAM DB  

 

One create a selective backup which contains an Option list with a Pre command and and Post Commnad
