I'm really disappointed because there was written in the implementation guide that I must provide my clients with PDM Backup and restore guide.
And I really don't know where to get that PDF files, I've looked in the VAR center and there was nothing
I still hope that someone would send me the PDF files on my email.
Hi Mike -
The process is documented in the Installation Guide.
I thought that there are different documents than the installation guide for backup and restore SQL, Archive server, Database server
anyway Thanks a lot for the reply
Hi Mike -
That is correct. In order to properly backup Enterprise PDM there are three steps:
1.) Backup the database (vault and ConisioMasterDB)
This can be automated by creating a 'maintenance plan' within SQL Server Management Studio.
2.) Backup the archive server (user credentials)
This can be automated in the same manner as the database backups by using the Archive Server Configuration tool.
3.) Backup the physical archive server files.
This is done in the same manner that you would backup any file folders. (Veritas, etc.)
Lastly, please be sure that the backups are not stored on the same machine that the source data lives on :-)
The procedure is well documented in the installation guide.
Thanks for the explanation
I really appreciate your reply
