PWH Partitioning - Does it needs daily backup before the script runs

Hi All ,

We are configuring DB partitioning for our XLarge environment and in the steps i could see ,

  • Before script execution, make sure you create a backup of the database (just in case)
  • Disconnect the dynaTrace server from the PWH

We are using Microsoft SQL server and it needs to be a daily SQL server Job , does it mean we need back up the data and disconnect the server from PWH daily before the JOB is executed .

Thanks & Regards ,

Hi Suganya,

no, the backup is only recommended before the execution of the installation script. The daily job should run without a prior backup. Best regards,


Thank you for the reply Peter ..
