You can run full, configuration, and synchronized Gateway server backups. It is recommended that you run a backup at regular intervals.
- In the EcoStruxure IT Gateway, click the menu icon and select Backup.
- Click Create backup and 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: There is an issue using NFS shares for backup. Windows shares work as expected for both Windows and Linux installations.
Full: Each backup file contains all server configuration and repository data.
Synchronization: The first backup file contains all server configuration and repository data; subsequent files contain only new or changed data.
Configuration: Each backup file contains all server configuration data, but no repository data.
