Default Backing up Blackberry Enterprise Server ??

Please Login to Remove!


I am done installing the blackberry enterprise server using SQL Server Desktop Edition. I am not sure what is the backup process for the blackberry enterprise server but would some help with what needs to backup?

Do i need to run a daily backup? If yes, what are the directories and files that I need to backup? I will be using ntbackup.

Do I need to backup the database only and run the backup each time a user is added?

This will work if you are running MSDE or Full SQL server: besadmin - How to Backup the BESMgmt Database

I only backup my database everyday but I only keep about 2 weeks worth of backups.

Hope this helps.
