ActiveIQ Unified Manager 9.7 and later


Starting with Unified Manager 9.7, there are two methods of creating backups of the Unified Manager database and configuration files, and their associated schedules.

  • Regular Back-up Job - Gets triggered at the Regular Backup Schedule; same as older versions of UM (Unified Manager)
    After the first full backup, all the subsequent backups are incremental without any limits to the number of incremental files. 
  • Full Back-up Job - Gets triggered at the Full Backup Schedule
