SqlAzureMWBatchBackup v1.2.4.0 'Value cannot be null.Parameter name: name'

Sep 7, 2011 at 10:45 AM

Running:

SQLAzureMWBatchBackup -S xxx.database.windows.net -U admin@xxx -P xxxyyyzzz -D MyDb

I get:

Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: name

What am I missing? SQLAzureMW.exe works fine.

Thanks,

Neil

Hi Neil,

Yes, I see the problem.  I will work on a long term fix, but for now, if you edit SQLAzureMWBatchBackup.exe.config file and add the following line below SourceServerType:

<add key="TargetServerType" value="ServerType_SQLAzure"/>

And I think you should be good to go.  If not, please let me know.

Regards,
George
