Backup Transaction Logs on all Databases

,

Here we go again. This is the last in my backup series that I use to do backups of the databases. As far as I know this should only kick out errors when there really is one.

This stored procedure is designed to take 4 parameters

@bksrv: This is the name or the IP address of the spooler or backup server to send to.

@user: Login name for the FTP server

@upass: Password for the FTP server

@path: Local path files will be written to first.

As always if you can do better or make this one better please do so and post it!

This is the stored proc that I use to do full backups of my databases.
This script will backup locally then ship the file off via ftp and confirm that it is there.
It has some other basic error checking in it like drive space checking to make sure you 
don't blow up the server by filling up a drive.
Also, It will only delete files that are confirmed on the FTP site. If the file isn't there
it will not be deleted. You will recive an event. The script will run until the disk fills up
then you will get no more backups!

This stored procedure is designed to take 4 parameters
@bksrv: This is the name or the IP address of the spooler or backup server to send to.
@user: Login name for the FTP server
@upass: Password for the FTP server
@path: Local path files will be written to first.

This has only been tested under MS-SQL2k,MS-SQL 7,Win2k,WinNT4sp6a
