Copying Backups using XP_CMDSHELL

By kenkaufman,

This script is designed to backup the database, and copy it over the network to our backup server.  The requirement for this particular database is 7 days of data kept on the LAN.  The share on the backup server is mapped to the Y:\ drive.  The datename function is used over the datepart function for returning a string for ease of administration, particularly if non DBAs have to interpret the script.   The live version of this actually runs in a job, with the backup portion being separated from the copy, allowing us to back out based on results, of the backup.
