Backup Restore in Nav 2013 R2

Hi team.


Can any one have checked that Nav 2013 R2 backup -restore with poweshell supports to Sql Express 2012 or not.?




  • Welcome to DUG!!!!

    I think it should support to SQL Server Express 2012. What are the problem you are facing ??

    You can try to use folllowing command to restore the backup. You need to have SQL backup i.e Bak File

    New-NAVDatabase -FilePath <DatabaseBAKfile> -DatabaseName <MyNavDatabase> -DatabaseInstance <DatabaseInstance> DatabaseServer <DatabaseServer> ServiceAccount <ServiceAccount>


    You can directly restore the backup from SQL server ..
