    Confused - Backing ePO4.5 & Upgrading ePO4.6.1

      I'm trying to backup ePO4.5 and perform an upgrade to ePO4.6.1. Server OS, Windows 2003, will remain unchanged.


      However, i'm already stumped at the Backup stage of ePO4.5.


      I was also looking at options to backup my database via SQL Server 2005 from article https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB59855 , i got stuck on this command - sqlcmd -E -S servername\instancename -Q "BACKUP DATABASE ePO4_servername TO DISK = 'c:\backupdirectory\test' WITH INIT, SKIP"


      I kept getting command line errors. How should the actual backup command look like base on the following:


      Server Computer Name - itsvcsmcafee.domain.com


      McAfee Database Settings


      Database server name - ITSVCSMCAFEE

      Database server instance - EPOSERVER

      Database server port - 1155

      Database name - ePO4_ITSVCSMCAFEE


      My path to McAfee ePO is - C:\Program Files\McAfee\ePolicy Orchestrator


      Your help is much appreciated


      PS - I am tempted to upgrade straight away without backup first. Is this advisable?
