Service > System Backup

The System Backup option allows you to perform a full or partial backup. By default, a full backup is run once a week to back up the entire database, configuration files, and the file system metadata archive file. Also by default, a partial backup is run on all other days of the week that the full backup is not run. This backup includes database journals, configuration files, and file system journal files.

Note: StorNext must be configured with a storage media such as tape, sdisk, or Lattus in order to perform a system backup, or an error will occur.

Note: Quantum recommends making two or more backup copies to minimize vulnerability to data loss in the event of hardware failure.
