To initiate a backup, click Run Backup. When you click this button, the backup starts immediately.
Consider running a backup under the following circumstances:
•You made configuration changes to the administrative interface; for example, you added, edited, deleted, or duplicated information.
In the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 User Preferences Interface, users can update their speed dials for their phones. If an end user updates the speed dials, these changes automatically get propagated to the User page in the Cisco Unified Communications Manager Business Edition 3000 Administrative Interface (Users/Phones > Users). You may not be aware when an end user makes a change to speed dials, so you may want to back up your system occasionally to ensure that the latest changes are backed up.
•You identified a problem with the tar file that is backed up to the USB hard disk or SFTP server.
•You identified a problem with the USB hard disk or SFTP server, and your tar file is not available or is not functional.
•You are about to upgrade the software that is running on your server.
Run backups when you expect less network traffic.
To stop the backup, click Cancel.
Caution If the backup is not completed within 1 hour, the backup session may time out. If it times out, you must run the backup again.
