Disaster Recovery Backup Options

Use this dialog box to select the type of Disaster Recovery Backup operation that you want to use.

Full

Establishes the backup type as a full backup. This form of backup secures the entire CommServe database and the Windows registry entries created by the software.

Differential

Establishes the backup type as a differential backup. This form of backup secures those portions of the CommServe database that have changed since the last differential backup. It also backs up the Windows registry entries.

Shrink DB

Select this option to minimize the space usage on the database and database log file before a Disaster Recovery Backup operation. This option does not affect the backup size of the database.

Shrinking the DB may affect the CommServe database performance. Therefore, we recommend to select this option only when there is no sufficient space in the CommServe host.

Select this option only when no jobs are running in the CommCell Console. Enabling this option during the active jobs may affect other operations.

Enable database(s) backup compression

Select this option to compress the database backup file (*.dmp). Selecting this option will only compress the backup file; it will not compress the database.

Compression saves disk space and transmission bandwidth for export and backup locations.

Select additional databases to backup

Select the additional database(s) to be included in the Disaster Recovery Backup operations. The databases selected will be protected in addition to the CommServe database.

WFEngine

Specifies whether the workflow engine database is included in the Disaster Recovery backup. By default, the database is included in the Disaster Recovery backup.

Clear the checkbox to exclude the workflow engine database from the Disaster Recovery backup.
