Backups in a database mirroring system

Although database mirroring can help minimize the risk of data loss, it is strongly recommended that you back up and validate the databases that are participating in database mirroring systems.

  • You can use the BACKUP DATABASE statement to perform a backup relative to the database server. The BACKUP DATABASE statement is executed on the primary database server, so the file name that is provided should specify a network drive or UNC name that is consistent for both the primary and mirror database servers.

  • You can perform client-side backups of the database using the dbbackup utility.
