Action Property (Backup)

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The Action property controls the type of backup performed against a Microsoft SQL Server database.

An expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

A long integer specifying the backup as described in Settings.

Description

SQLDMOBackup_Database

0

Backs up the database.

SQLDMOBackup_Files

2

Backs up only specified files.

SQLDMOBackup_Incremental

1

Backs up rows changed after the most recent full database or differential backup.

SQLDMOBackup_Log

3

Backs up only the database transaction log.

SQL Server can back up an entire database, that portion of a database changed after the last backup, one or more operating system files containing table or index data, or the transaction log of a database.

The value of the Action property determines applicability and interpretation of related Backup object properties. For example, if Action is SQLDMOBackup_Files, either the DatabaseFileGroups or DatabaseFiles property must specify filegroups or files backed up.
