NSM backup and restore options



Article ID: KB26958 KB Last Updated: 25 Feb 2013Version: 1.0
This article provides information about the backup and restore options for NSM.
The following articles cover the backup and restore methods for the NSM database. By default, NSM performs a nightly backup at 2:00 AM, server local time. These bakups are stored in 7 directories under /var/netscreen/dbbackup. The directories are named backup1, backup2, backup3, backup4, backup5, backup6, and backup7; where Monday is backup1, Tuesday is backup2, and so on.

The number of daily backups that are taken and the time at which the backups are made is controlled with the /usr/netscreen/HaSvr/var/haSvr.cfg configuration file. For information, refer to KB12467 - How to change the NSM DB Backup location.
