System Backup

Before upgrading the system, it is strongly recommended that you archive the historical data and back up the EcoStruxure BMS servers to preserve the current data and configurations.

The following diagram describes the recommended steps for archiving and backing up a multi-server system running EcoStruxure Building Operation software.

Table: System Archive and Backup Process Overview





Archive system data

Perform a manual archive of the system historical data in the Enterprise Server or Enterprise Central. (Archiving is not on Automation servers.) For more information, see Manually Creating an Archive .


Back up current EcoStruxure BMS servers

Create an All data backup for the Enterprise Central, Enterprise Server, and each Automation server. The backups do not need to follow any particular order. For more information, see Backing Up EcoStruxure BMS Servers Manually .


Save backup sets to an external location

Save the Enterprise Central, Enterprise Server, and Automation server backup sets (.xbk) to a safe location on a file system that is external to the Entrerprise Central or Enterprise Server. For more information, see Backup Set Storage and Protection .
