Backup Skype for Business - backup-sfb has been updated

There hasn't been a need for many updates to this tool, as it seems to be working just fine on most installations. It was however time to release v4.01 with a few additions, and here are the highlights of this release:

New features:

  • SkipAllSQL -  A new switch, to skip all Database backups
  • KeepDaysLog - A new parameter to control the number of days to keep old backups. default is 5 days
  • StoreBackupto - A new parameter to control where you want to store the final zipfile.
Changes:
Some SQL servers have disabled WMI access remotely for security reasons, and my method of connecting and discovering instances thus failed. I have tried to recreate the connection method, but have only verified this on named instances. If someone using the default instance could verify it still works, it would be greatly appreciated.


As always, the script can be found by following the link in my menu above, or simply by clicking here.
Back up Skype for Business, and sleep well :)
