Transaction Logs - Job Script

By GabeGreen,

I've included this job script, because it is used by the scheduler scripts that I've also posted. This job is a little more involved than most may need... It first checks to see if certain jobs are running. Is so, it waits for a while, and then checks again. After that it drops the existing dump devices, and then recreates them for each database (MAKE SURE TO CHANGE THE @FILE LOCATION FOR THE DUMP DEVICE). Then it deletes the old backup files, and tries to do a differential DB backup. If that fails, it tries a full DB backup... After trying twice it continues with a quick truncate of the transaction log. If it completes the backup without errors, it stops the job. If not it then resets the database options, and retries the backup. (PLEASE LOOK AT EACH JOB STEP, AND MODIFY/REMOVE ANY PORTIONS THAT SHOULD NOT APPLY OR THAT MAY SPECIFY PHYSICAL PATHS THAT DON'T EXIST ON YOUR SERVER).
