Release : SAP MII Backuper v 1.0

SAP MII Backuper an application that I have developed which can take unattended backups of the Configuration & Projects of any SAP MII system above 12.0.

Though the method of taking backups varies between SAP MII 12.0 and system greater than 12.1, the application is intelligent and automatically switches from the legacy CMSAdmin servlet (12.0) to the published TransportService (12.1 and above) to ensure minimal human intervention.

The application has been created using Adobe Air and you would need to have Adobe Air runtime installed if you want to make use of this application.

Why should you use it ?

SAP MII 12.0 does not have an automated transport mechanism. SAP MII 12.1 and above does, when integrated with NWDI. Therefore, in case you are using v12.0 or using 12.1 without NWDI you can use this utility. You can also use this utility to keep a automatic backup of the projects/config you want on your pc or laptop.



  • Intelligent Backup with auto detect SAP MII version
  • Can be run from command line without GUI with the parameter downloadMode for use with Windows Task Scheduler.
  • Backup taken on the system it is running on at a selected location with no human intervention.
  • Easy settings GUI to configure which Projects to backup.
  • Remember settings
  • Log file





How to Use

  • Install the Application and Select the Project you want to Back Up as shown in the image above.
  • You can choose a Backup Path where the application will back up the project and configuration.
  • Choose “Backup Now and Exit” to take an ad-hoc backup.
  • Follow the steps noted below to automatically schedule backups using the Windows Task Scheduler
  • Go to Control Panel -> Scheduled Tasks -> Add Scheduled Task. Click Next
  • In the Next Screen Choose “SAP MII Backuper” from the list of Programs

  • Enter the Schedule settings on the following screens and keep clicking next until you arrive at the final screen

  • Check the checkbox shown in the Image above
  • In the Final window that pops out enter the command line argument downloadMode as shown below.

  • That’s it.



If nothing happens, check for logs in the Application Install Folder or the selected Backup Folder.

      Abesh, nice work, simple design and will be useful. 

      CI opportunity - label the boxes as to folders that will be back up vs project folders.  I assume the right box is the folders to be backed up...

      This tool doesn't seem to do anything when the Backup Now & Exit Button is pushed in 12.2.5 Build(58)

      Thanks so much for your suggestion, I'll try to do that if I update the code 🙂

      It seems to me that your role is missing the XMII_TransportService action which is only attached by default only to the SuperAdmin role. Ask your admin to either add that action to your user or role and it should work fine 🙂 Let me know if that works.

      Also you can get in touch with me on email / phone and we can try to get it to work 🙂

      My Security Team can't find that role, do you have a base role from a base install?

      That would be an action not a role. The action needs to be attached to your role.

      We've added this action to my role and pushing the "Backup Now and Exit" Button appears to do nothing...
