Backing up the AuthAnvil SSO database V4.x & newer

Steps to backup your AuthAnvil SSO database:

  1. Open a command window and go to C:\Program Files\Scorpion Software\AuthAnvil\AuthAnvilTools\SSOBackupTool.
  2. To run the backup, run the command ScorpionSoft.IdentityServer.Backup.exe followed by the filename. i.e. ScorpionSoft.IdentityServer.Backup.exe -b “ssobackup.xml”.
  3. Your file is created and saved in the same directory. If the backup is successful, the tool will complete silently. If you receive an error confirm the instance name, make sure your user account has privileges to access the database and then run the backup again.
