Re: Backup of Prognosis component

Hi Makesh,

The backup process would be included as part of the upgrade process.

Here is something you can grab from the online help:

Home > Deployment and Installation > Installation > Server on MS Windows > Upgrade Installation > Upgrade Process

Hi Jitesh,

Thanks for the response.

Here I'm not referring to backup procedure during upgrade. I'm looking for regular backup process (on daily basis or schedule basis) at tool level such as taking backup of Prognosis components, displays, thresholds, configuration files, etc. Do we have any standard procedure or best practices of taking backup of prognosis application/tool.

Regards,
Makesh

Makesh,

Same backup process can be used to regularly backup prognosis. One way would be to have a scheduler in windows or prognosis (threshold) that triggers the backup process, e.g, every Sunday morning.

Re: Backup of Prognosis component

Hi Makesh
Glad you asked. You're right that the current documentation only shows what to back up. Scheduling of backups is left to the user depending on what backup software you prefer to use or if you would like to utilize the Prognosis threshold feature as part of it or use your optimisation hours for IR to implement something for you. Let us know if you would like to try using the Prognosis threshold feature. If so then we can suggest things you can try. Smile

Hi Makesh,

I thought I had a topic in here already on the exact steps. I will create a topic on the backup and restore commands now for you and other customer's.
- It is very simple and very powerful.

Give me some time and I will let you know the link for the new topic here as well.
