We have a MS SQL 2016 databse server with a number of databases that need backing up. We are using a maintenance plan to backup all databases at the moment but running low on space on one of our drives.
We have the following databases:
foo1 foo2 .. .. foo10 fred01 fred02
How would we go about swapping out the T-SQL in the maintenance plan task to only backup the databases foo* and not the fred databases?
I could select the databases manually but over time new foo databases are added and I want to ensure that these are automatically backed up without needing to update the maintenance plan.
