backupcopy An output parameter. Internal use only.
backup The backup to make a copy of. Accepts a search query that identifies one backup. The search query can be a backup name or
ID, or a full search. (Required)
host The target host. (Required)
validation_type The type of validation. The default is 'X'.
The following values are supported:
D Validate that all pages in the database belong to the correct object, perform a checksum validation, and validate the correctness
F Perform a full validation.
S Perform a checksum validation.
X Perform an express validation.
N Do not perform validation.
expiration_date The date that the backup expires (i.e. the earliest date it can be automatically deleted). Not specifying this parameter means
the date will be calculated based on the database's maintenance plan, while specifying NULL means that there will be no expiry
date. The default is to use the date calculated using the maintenance plan.
This task creates a copy of an existing backup on a different host. If the backup being copied (the
source backup) is an incremental backup, a copy of the full backup and any prior incremental
backups (in the same backup set) must already exist on the target host. If not, these backups are copied along with
If any form of validation is requested, there must be a cloud server capable of running the database on the
target host. If no validation is requested, no running cloud server is required.
