Advice required on backing up VMWare BES 4.6 server
Please Login to Remove!
Is there a standard practice procedure to backup and restore a VMWare BES Server? We run BES Server 4.6 on a VMWare 3.5 host server. The guest OS is Server 2003. I have been asked to apply a service pack on to the BES server, and as a rollback plan I want to backup the VMWare server before proceeding. Will a simple snapshot of the existing server right before the upgrade suffice? I suspect it won't be that simple. Should there be a seperate backup of the database? Hope someone can help me. Thanks.
Anytime you do a BES upgrade --- Backup the Database!!!!
Regularly scheduled BES database backup's are invaluble. As long as you have the BES database backup you can throw your server out the window....that won't be necessary in your case but you get the idea.
