I have no knowledge of MS SQL Server. Have software (BOOMI) that uses a database in this. I found a folder where the database is being backed up. i.e. there is a *.BAK file and hourly logs *.TRN. I need to update the boomi software and they say I need to make a back up of the database. If this is being done I don't want to duplicate anything. If worst case scenerio happens how do I restore the data base from these? Is there any possibility that the table indexes or unique numbers could be messed up from the restore? Not sure of how to state this, I'm an iseries DB2 programmer primarily. Inherited this and need assistance.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You’ll want to use the BACKUP DATABASE command to create a backup of the database just before the upgrade.

If you needed to restore it would remove the database and recreate and repopulate it completely for the backup. There is no change of the indexes or unique numbers being messed up.
