You can run full, configuration, and synchronized Gateway server backups. It is recommended that you run a backup at regular intervals.
Note: You can restore a backup from the same version of Gateway only.
- In EcoStruxure IT Gateway 1.7.0, click the menu icon and select Backup. Click Create backup.
- Specify the backup type: Full, Configuration, or Synchronized.
- Click Add Location to define the mount type (NFS or Windows), backup path, and for the Windows mount type, the username, password, and domain of the server you are using for the backup. Note: You can reuse this location for future backups.
Note: There is an issue using NFS shares for backup. Windows shares work as expected for both Windows and Linux installations.
