  • Remote Application Server backup

    What directory(ies) should be backed up on a Remote Application Server?

  • #2
    Depends on what you want. Backing up directories will not get you a working configuration or CDR database, you have to preform data dumps (quite simple) or have special software that can backup an active DB (quite expensive). Directories can get you any custom phone configs, voice mail, AA prompts, and the like. But normally all of those except the VM only need to be backed up once a year or so unless you know you change them a lot. And VM is a preference thing. You have to back it up every day for it to be useful most of the time and that is just a little much for most people. (what good are last weeks voice messages, or even yesterdays for that matter).

    So what did you want to backup is a requisite question to knowing what directories to backup.
