Data backups

Most organizations implementing Dynamics GP will already have a backup solution and schedule in place. If there is no existing backup solution, it is highly recommended to implement one prior to the Dynamics GP implementation. For new or existing backup solutions, you should verify that there is adequate room to add the additional data generated by the Dynamics GP implementation.

For backup solutions with a lot of available space, companies may choose to backup an entire server. At the very least, plan to back up the following:

What to back up

How often


SQL Server databases:

• master

• msdb


• All GP company databases

Full backups: Daily

Transaction logs: several times a day

After the initial installation and configuration of Dynamics GP, the master, msdb, and DYNAMICS databases do not get updated very often in most environments. However, they are also typically not very large and are quite useful to have if a restore is required.
