EPDM Gamblers – Are you All-In!

Blog Post created by Joy Garon Employee on Jul 18, 2011

Okay, so a nice snappy title should grab your attention. But, it’s not about Vegas - It’s about your data and to use a gambling term, you better have insurance. In EPDM terms, this means a complete backup.


Sadly, we hear of too many cases where someone is looking for help recreating their vault. When we suggest restoring the backup, that’s when it becomes painfully obvious just how many folks procrastinate on what should be the most important task – BACKUPS!


So, with this in mind we would like to remind you of the importance of backing up your vault.

In EPDM this means:

  • Databases
  • Archives
  • Archive Server Credentials

The procedure for doing a backup can be found in the EPDM Installation guide and can typically be automated by your internal IT team.

Additionally, it’s a good idea to practice restoring a backup set. It’s best to ensure that the procedure you have in place works before you need it.


Need additional help or have questions? Contact your VAR – they can help you develop a backup and restore plan.





p.s. make sure the backup does not reside on the same server as the vault - just sayin'
