.bak Conversion

Post by mbare » Tue Feb 25, 2014 5:38 pm

We are having issues converting our backup file to a .bak format. When we attempt to convert the file from .sqb to .bak, it prompts us for a password which we were not provided. We used the password that Bullhorn Support provided which allowed us to download the files from the ftp site as well as decompress the file from a .rar to a .sqb file. However this password does NOT work when trying to convert the file to a .bak.

When I tried using the recommended tool I get an error which is:

Error code: 710: Wrong password entered. The tool is SQL Backup File Converter from RedGate.

We contacted Bullhorn support, and they informed us that the password was working (?) and they directed us to submit a support topic in this forum.

Can you please post the name of the RAR file, so that I can attempt to test.

The rar file is called: HumanResourceServicesInc._328_BULLHORN236_2014_02_13_Database.rar

After the file is extracted the file is called: BULLHORN236_FULL_2008_2014.02.07_23.25.52.sqb

I was just able to convert the file with the supplied password. The password is in the email you were sent with the FTP password.

The line you are looking for begins like this:

"Password to convert SQB2MTF: XXXXXXXXXXXXXX"

The line "Password to convert SQB2MTF: XXXXXXXXXXXXXX" is not in the email we received. We would like to request that that specific information be resent to us.
