Manual Backup

Hi Mates,


Is it possible if i want to backup the policies packages, objects and database revision file from the management server as a alternative backup? Regardless for R7X and above.


If yes, may i know where is their location or path for the Security Policies packages, Objects and Database Revision?

Which file should i keep?


Thanks and regards,

Copying individual files is not a recommended backup approach.
You may be able to get away with this in a limited fashion pre-R80 releases but in R80 and above, a database is used.

Your best bet is to use the migration tools to make a backup.
It will copy all the necessary files and, with the help of the migration tools, allow you to restore these files to a newly installed management server.
It's also an excellent way to test upgrades out-of-band.
