In a development or testing environment, it is sometimes favorable to restore the system to its default installation configuration. By having a backup configuration available, it is simple and easy to revert to a default configuration.

In a development or testing environment, one can revert to a default configuration if one has a backup configuration available to restore.

Creating a backup of the databases

Steps:

1.  Immediately after a clean installation create a backup of the K2.net™ 2003 databases. The K2.net™ 2003 databases are "K2" and "K2Log".
2.  Ensure that the K2.net™ 2003 Server Service is not running.
3.  Make use of Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Manager to make a backup of these 2 databases.
4.  Store these backups in a safe place.
