Maintenance plan conversion

This wizard is intended for converting linear Maintenance Plans created in SQL Server Management Studio to Policies of EMS SQL Backup.


NB: You need to have SQL Server Integration Services installed on the server to perform this conversion.

Note: We recommend to disable Maintenance Plans in SQL Server Management Studio after conversion to avoid adverse effects.


To start conversion select the Policy Maintenance Policies |ConvertfromMaintenanceplan Convert from Maintenance plan context menu item for the server at the Servers tab.

Note: If there are no maintenance plans available on the server this context menu item is not displayed.
