When you have created the backup configuration, you can set up the system to automatically backup regularly according to your backup strategy.
The regular backup files will consume some disk space and increase in size over time, so it is highly recommended to use a remote location. See how to clean up old backups here.

  1. Open the Webmin web interface.
    • Type the address of your Data Center Operation server in a Web browser, use HTTPS and port 10000, e.g., https://SERVERNAME:10000.
  2. Log on to Webmin using the user credentials created during installation of StruxureWare Data Center Operation.
  3. In the left menu, select System>Scheduled Cron Jobs.
  4. To enable the default backup schedule:
    1. Select one of the 3 backup options as needed:
      • Daily
      • Weekly
      • Monthly
    2. Click Enable Selected Jobs to enable the job with the default settings. Note that per default the daily backup option is enabled.

  5. To customize the backup schedule:
    1. Click one of the 3 backup Data Center Operation server options (click in the "Command" column) as needed:
      • Daily
      • Weekly
      • Monthly
    2. Edit the time for the system to automatically execute the backup job as needed.
      By default daily backup runs at 2:30 AM.
