Background documentationDatabase Administration Locate this document in the navigation structure


As an administrator of a SAP MaxDB database, you must carry out certain administration tasks on a regular basis. Backups are one example of such a task. Many administration tasks can be automated. Certain events may lead to additional administration tasks, for example a database restore after a hardware failure.

The following tools are available for managing databases:

  • Database Studio

    From version 7.7 onwards, Database Studio replaces the database tools Database Manager GUI, SQL Studio, and Synchronization Manager and also offers additional functions (such as a GUI for the Loader program).

  • Database Manager CLI (command line tool)

  • CCMS (only in SAP systems)

Note Note

The documentation for the SAP MaxDB database system also generally applies to SAP liveCache databases. Differences are indicated in the documentation where necessary.

End of the note.
