Using this dialog box, you select the folder where you want to create your database backup seed file. When the backup process is started the backup seed file is saved to this folder.
You can back up any domain existing in an Oracle or SQL server source database to the backup repository. The backup repository and its copies are only compatible with the current version of Smart Instrumentation.
To open the dialog box, with the System Administration window open, click File > Backup.
When backing up Smart Instrumentation data, the software does not back up all the audit trail data that was previously trimmed. If you want to backup audit trail data, see Backing Up Files Containing Audit Trail Data.
If you work in thin client environment, for example, Citrix, you must copy the INtools.ini file to the Smart Instrumentation home folder on the server machine to be able to perform a backup procedure. On backup completion, remove the INtools.ini file from the server machine.
Target backup path — Allows you to specify the path for the folder where your database backup seed file is created.
Browse — Allows you to browse and select a folder for the database backup seed file.
Select — Selects the chosen folder for creating the backup seed file and opens the Source Database dialog box, where you can select a domain for backup and start the backup process.
Backups, Domain, .INIT, and so forth can only be made to your local drive. A backup cannot be made to or from a network drive.
