Define Backup Database Action Options
Use the Scheduler's Backup database Action to export a selected CSM database to a compressed Cherwell Archive Repository (.czar) file on a scheduled basis.
Define the following settings as they apply, and then select Save.
|Directory||Provide the directory name or select Browse to select a directory where database backup files are stored.||The directory must be available on the machine where the Scheduler runs. We recommend a UNC name.|
|File Name||Provide a file name for the database backup.|
|Rollover Files|| Define the frequency of database backup
||If you don't roll over backup files, a new
file is created for every database backup. The date is appended to the file
name you entered (example:
For Weekly frequency, if you run a database backup every day of the week, there are seven files (one for each day of the week). If you run a backup every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, there are three files. The action uses these same files every week.
For Monthly frequency, backup files are made for each day of the month. The action uses these same files every month.
For Yearly frequency, backup files are made for each day of the year. The action uses these same files every year.
