Dynamic Transaction Log Backup

By Mitch Spruill,

Have you ever added a database to the server and forgot to add it to the backup plan? Now you don't have to worry about that task. This procedure uses the database names from sys.databases and backs each transaction log up to a local drive. Only a few things are required. 1) A local drive, 2) DB Mail, mail profile and recipient. (or comment out the mail section), and 3) the ability to execute xp_create_subdir. An SQL Agent job can call this procedure on a predefined schedule and you never miss a database backup again. mws
