Performing Backups and Restores

Use the Backup and Restore feature to back up your IPM database.  The back up feature saves settings, integration configurations, saved content, and configured users. You can set a backup schedule or perform an immediate backup.

  1. Select Backup and Restore from the Settings page.

  2. Performing a backup

    Use the Backup page to specify a location, mount type, user info, number of backups to maintain (Backups Cycle), advanced options based on the mount type, and schedule.


    For customers who have deployed more than one Appliance or Virtual Edition instance, it is recommended that separate share drives are used to back up each instance.

  3. Performing a restore

    Select the Restore button to perform a restore of your IPM database. You’ll need to select a backup file to use in the restoration process.
