Scheduling the backup batch file to run automatically

You can use the Windows task scheduler to run the backup batch file automatically on a regular basis. For information about configuring the backup and restore batch files, see Backing up and restoring your data using scripts .

In the Enter name of the new folder dialog box, type the name of folder.

In the backup.bat file, the parameter -force is useful if you have scheduled the batch file to run automatically as part of a scheduled task. If a backup file of the same name is found in the backup directory path, -force causes the script to overwrite the file without issuing a prompt saying that a duplicate file name has been detected.

If you are running the script manually, you might want to remove the -force parameter.

Performing a manual backup of the storage folder before upgrade

Before you upgrade UC Analytics, it is recommended that you perform a manual backup of your storage folder. If you have multiple Storage Engines deployed, you must take a backup of each storage folder on each server.

C:\Program Files\<VendorName>\UC Analytics\Storage

This type of backup copy is different from the backup script. The backup script copies only the collected data, data source configuration, and Admin settings. The backup script does not copy the Cassandra system files. To back up all of the database, you must copy the entire storage folder.

Moving your storage location

You can move the location of your UC Analytics storage database within the same computer. When you move the database, you must also change a number of places that point to the database.​

Change {"Key":"StorageDirectoryPath","Value":"C:\\Program Files\\Quest\\UC Analytics\\Storage"} to reflect the new path for the storage location.
