GWAVA7 /SMGW - Backup configuration

Hello,

I found only some old KBs for backup the running configuration of an GWAVA installation [1], [2]. The handbook for GWAVA7 describe only the system.xml file as source of restoration.

I think, there are some databases in action in the installation and more possible file.

Is there an KB or an article for this topic? What is the best way to backup and restore an installation?

Thank for help and comments
Michael

I see that this is an old post but no one has provided an answer.

I've installed the SMG appliance on VMware and intend to back up the
appliance (VM) along with my other VMs. Any backup program that can
backup a VM should work.

Re: GWAVA7 /SMGW - Backup configuration

Hi Kevin,

 the solution to create a clone is the raw method. But is there no way to create a backup AND restore of the configuration from inside?

Strange,

Michael

Hi Michael,

Does this help?

What directories to backup and exclude from your backup software

 

Edited:
I'm sorry Michael. I just looked at your last post and didn't realize it was you who initially provided that knowledge base reference.

I'm not aware of anything else at the moment. You may want to suggest an enhancement here:

Secure Messaging Gateway Idea Exchange

This is new for Secure Messaging Gateway. The Product Managers review these suggestions on a regular basis.

Re: GWAVA7 /SMGW - Backup configuration

You should probably post enhancement ideas here: https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/mf-smg  The site @KBOYLE linked is the new site, but ideas have not been migrated there yet.  Product Managers are still using the site I provided.
