Best Practices Question

How do I FTP the nightly backup of the k1000?

02/24/2016 1996 views
I had a bat calling a script in K1000 v5, but they went and changed the naming convention for version 6 which I didn't notice until we crashed a couple weeks ago.

Anyway, my script is no longer working.  I can't find instructions for backing the 1000 off to a file server here at itninja, which surprises me.

How can I get my offsite backup working again?

Thank you!

Just for info, this is what I'm trying...I'm guessing the * is causing the issue but I don't know how to get around it.

rmdir c:\k1000backup /s /q
mkdir c:\k1000backup

set scrptloc=c:\

if "%1%"=="" goto usage

cd /D %1

for /F "usebackq tokens=1-3 delims=./- " %%p in (`date /t`) do mkdir %%r%%q%%p
for /F "usebackq tokens=1-3 delims=./- " %%p in (`date /t`) do cd %%r%%q%%p

echo backing up to %cd%
"%systemroot%\system32\ftp.exe -i" -s:"%scrptloc%\backup.scr"
goto end

echo usage: 
echo    bkupkbox dir
echo examples:
echo    bkupkbox .
echo    bkupkbox \\server\share
echo    bkupkbox c:\

cd "%scrptloc%"

open kbox1000
type binary
mget *.tgz
Big bonus is the ability to just download just today's date.

Even using this I had to tweak my process a bit following the 6.4 upgrade. This is the Script I use differs slightly from the official instructions but this is how I got mine to copy the necessary files:

open (my K1000's IP Address)
type binary
mget kbox_*

Thanks!  I didn't remember until reading the link that the dell tech did tell me they had basic names for the most current backup, making backing them up much easier than having to deal with dates in the name.   My backup ran fine, thanks!
