Backing up the AuthAnvil SSO database V3.x

SSO Settings are backed up as part of AuthAnvil Two Factor Auth but we also recommend backing them up separately.

Steps to backup your AuthAnvil SSO database:

  1. Open a command window and go to C:Program FilesScorpion SoftwareAuthAnvilAuthAnvilToolsSSOBackupTool
  2. To run the backup, run the command ScorpionSoft.IdentityServer.Backup.exe followed by -b and the preferred filename. i.e. ScorpionSoft.IdentityServer.Backup.exe -b “ssobackup.xml”  
  3. Your backup file is created and saved in the same directory from where you ran the command. If the backup is successful, the tool will complete silently. If you receive an error make sure you have the correct SQL instance name, verify that your user account has privileges to access the database and then run the backup again.
