Yes you can maintain your vCenter DB:

You can perform the following :

1. Monitor the growth of the log file and compacting log file.

2. Perform regular backup of the DB

3. Perform backup before any vCenter upgrade

Hi,

Thanks for your advice.

Is there any tool we can perform those tasks you mention ?  For SQL Server, I understand that we can make use of SQL Server Management Studio.

Thanks
