It would be great to have a tool that will allow export TMs from SQL databases without GroupShare instance. Another workaround could be batch TM export/import functionality with schedule support.
There are real use cases from my practice:
Customer has deleted 1 TM from 25 TMs and wanted to restore it from SQL backup. The idea of restoring whole TM container will overwrite all new content from other 24 TMs.
The customer’s IT specialists have no expertise, time or resources to install another GroupShare instance.
Even KB 000004160 doesn’t work anymore for GroupShare 2017 as result the is no fast and convenient way to restore TM from SQL backup.
