Postgresql for the SQL Server DBA: Backups, taking a dump via GUI

In my article Postgresql for the SQL Server DBA: Backups, taking a dump, I talk about how to perform a dump via the command-line.  In this article, I'll show how to perform this backup with a GUI tool pgAdmin in Linux.  pgAdmin is available for Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and more.  So let's get started and create a backup.

Start backup with pgAdmin

Now you can enter the file name and choose any options you want to change.  Here I'm staying with the default options for this example.

Backup options screen in pgAdmin

Now you see the results as the backup completes.
