8.Click Next. The Options step appears.

Backup_Restore_Scheduler_03_Options

Enter the information as described below:

a.Backup Set Name - The name of the backup set. The name is required. The name can be up to 255 characters long. The name appears on the Restore tab when you select the backup set to review and restore. Metalogix Backup for SharePoint creates a corresponding backup set folder in the file system for the backup set. The folder uses an internal identifier name that is not the same as the name that you specify.

b.Backup Set Description - Provides additional information about the backup set. Use this optional property to document details that helps you select the correct backup set during restore operations and general administrative activities.

c.Backup Set Location - You can specify where Metalogix Backup for SharePoint stores the backup set. Click Manage Locations to create a new location, or select an existing location from the drop-down list.

d.Run As - You need to specify the user to run the backup as in the Run As field.

e.Backup Type - In the Backup Type area you need to select the type of backup to create on a schedule, you can select between Schedule Full Backups or Schedule full and differential backups. If you click Schedule full and differential backups, you can choose to perform a full backup in place of a differential backup when the differential backup size is larger than a percentage that you specify.

f.Do Not Execute Scripts to Report on the Farm's Configuration at Time of Backup - Select Do not execute scripts to report on the farm's configuration at time of backup in order to prevent Metalogix Backup for SharePoint from providing farm's configuration at the time of the backup. If this option is deselected, then users will be able to select the "view farm configuration" option for the backup set.

g.Enable compression - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint compresses the data in the backup set. Compressing the data makes the backup set smaller. Compressed data is also often faster to transfer on your network.

h.Enable encryption - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint encrypts the data in the backup set. You can select from two industry standard compression methodologies: AES 128 bits or AES 256 bits. Encrypted data can only be decrypted by Metalogix Backup for SharePoint. If you enable encryption, you must specify a password. When you restore from the backup set, you must provide the same password to decrypt the backup.

i.Copy Only - When selected, Metalogix SharePoint allows a backup to be taken that does not interfere with the conventional backup/restore sequence of SQL Server backups. This option is normally used if SQL Server backups are already being taken separately from Backup, and Backup should not interfere in the existing process.

j.Auto Include New Content Databases to Schedule - Select the Auto include new content databases to schedule, option in order to automatically include all new content databases to the scheduled backup.

9.Click Next. The Schedule Full step appears. This step appears if in the previous step, you either opted to schedule a full farm backup or you selected to run a full farm backup in place of a differential backup when the differential backup size is larger than a percentage that you specified.

f.Differential backup set size triggered a full backup for the next scheduled time - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint generates an alert when the size of a differential backup triggers a full backup during the next scheduled backup. You specify when the differential backup size triggers a full backup when you create the scheduled backup.

g.Backup operation took longer than <number> <unit> - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint generates an alert when a backup takes longer than the amount of time that you specify.

h.Write alerts to the Application event log on the Management Service computer - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint notes alerts generated by the scheduled backup in the Application event log on the computer that hosts the Management Service. You can use the Windows Event Log viewer to review the event log.

For more information about grooming, see Learning about data grooming. You can specify the following settings, which replace the default grooming settings:

a.Retain last x good backup set(s) - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint always saves at least the number of backup sets that you specify, without regard to the age of the sets. When you enable both this setting and the "Delete backup sets from repository and disk after x days" settings, the oldest retained set may be older than the age that you specify.

b.Delete backup sets from repository and disk after x days - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint deletes the data after the specified number of days.

c.Retain last x log files - When selected, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint always saves at least the number of log files that you specify, without regard to the age of the log file.

15.Click Next. The Mount Options step appears.

Backup_Restore_Scheduler_08_Mount_Options

Set the following optional parameters:

a.Content Database size limit - prevents the backup from being mounted if the content database exceeds the specified size. Note that setting a limit of 0MB means that there is no size limit and all backups will be mounted to the selected content databases.

b.Number of Mounted Databases to keep - allows you to specify the number of backups sets that are kept mounted. Specifying a value of 1 will keep the latest scheduled backup mounted.

c.Databases to Mount - select which content databases will be mounted. Selecting a content database for mounting will make the content database immediately available for granular restores.

16.Click Next. The Target SQL Server step appears if a Content Database was selected to be mounted in the previous step.

Restoring SharePoint farms

Metalogix Backup for SharePoint can restore SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 farms that have been previously backed-up using Metalogix Backup for SharePoint.

Metalogix Backup for SharePoint uses VSS to back up and restore the farm components that make up your SharePoint farm while your farm is in use. Your farm must be configured to use VSS. If VSS is not enabled, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint will not be able to back up your SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 farms. VSS is included in Windows Server 2003 and later versions of Windows. For information about how VSS works, please consult your Windows Server documentation, or the Microsoft article Volume Shadow Copy Service Overview at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa384649(VS.85).aspx.

Only SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019 farms can use Farm Backup/Restore.
