New and improved (?) backup script for Lync 2013

Based on a couple of feedback's and my own experience with these backup scripts, I think it is about time to release the new and improved version.

Highlights include:

  • Bugfix to catch installations where you do not use a named SQL instance
  • Should be able to create backups from several pools when running the backup (not all services, but most important)
  • The same script will now run on both Standard and Enterprise edition.
I have not tested the script in too many multi-pool installations, and really appreciate feedback on the matter. I have tested it on both standard and enterprise version.

The script is signed, and should run on any server, unmodified.

Instead of sharing the script through Drop-box, I have posted it in the Technet Gallery, right here: Backupscript-Lync_2013_v3.ps1. It will give you an option to rate the script, or even discuss it.
