Email when restore process fails

Postby db3712 » Mon May 05, 2014 5:21 pm

Hello. We utilize a web-based application that requires us to pull data down locally for reporting purposes. We have a restore process setup hourly. Is there an option to email an individual when the restore process fails? Thanks!

Use the MAILTO_ONERROR option e.g.

Code: Select all
EXEC master..sqlbackup '-sql "RESTORE DATABASE ... WITH MAILTO_ONERROR = []"'

You will need to first set up your email server settings in the GUI. Then run a test, from within the GUI, and from an extended stored procedure e.g.

Code: Select all
EXEC master..sqlbackup '-sql "BACKUP DATABASE model TO DISK = [<AUTO>] WITH MAILTO = []"'
