Hi Yuri,

The easiest way is the use one of the commercial backup programs available, such as Veritas Backup Exec. Most of them have add-on modules for MS SQL Server that will allow you to backup the StarTeam database from within the backup program. The important thing to remember, is to make sure that you backup the database and the StarTeam repository files at the same time and that no users are allowed to check files in during the backup of the files as well as the database tables. You will otherwise end up with a backup that is not in sync.

You will find more information on this page: http://www.fox.se/english/starteam/faq/backup.htm. (Even if it says StarTeam 3.0, the information is still applicable!)

Rgds,

Tommie
