Solution Backup

Solution Backup

Solution Backup


I have seen a couple of threads that relate to this, however

I am trying to automate our backups to an off-site FTP server (on a virtualised NAS)

I have actually tried 2 different FTP serves to no avail. Nothing seems to happen!
I have seen the comments about 100GB (!!) of disk space, I have about 250 available.
I have also seen some info about having to backup to another SE or application server, would that be correct?
Surely FTP is FTP?
(FTP servers tested with Filezilla OK so I know my firewall is letting it through etc.

The SE Web management page says 'Preparing backup' but then (sometimes!) says backup failed, invalid request.

Any advice please??


RE: Solution Backup

What version and what solution objects do you want to backup?

RE: Solution Backup

Demo kit on 10.1 and customers kit on 9.1

Would like full backup, although I am testing just with IPO config for the time being.

It's odd, on occasion I can get it to work.
Mostly though now I am getting "backup failed: wait inventory pushed stage failed" which seems quite common
but nothing will fix.
If I use SFTP the SE at least tries to make a backup, with FTP often it just does nothing at all

RE: Solution Backup

From documentation:
"You can set any Linux Server as the backup and restore location. To create a dedicated IP Office Linux server for backup and restore, install an IP Office Application Server without enabling the Voicemail Pro and one-X Portal for IP Office applications on that server."

I tried with non "IP Office Server Edition / Applications Server" but could not succeed (also could not find in logs what bother system).

Then I deploy Applications Server (with 100GB additional HD space and disabled Voicemail Pro and one-X Portal) and with it backup works.

Anyone succeed backup with non IP Office Server?
