Best Practice - Backing up Media Servers

Hello,

 

I have two BE12 Backup Servers. What is the best way to insure that I retain all my Jobs incase of a system failure. Should I create a image of the entire system? What I have been doing is backing up each others SQL database. Am I currently doing it the correct way of should I be doing it all together another way?

 

Thanks

Re: Best Practice - Backing up Media Servers

Well my advice would be to back your media servers all - all hard disks, system state and shadow copy components. It's easier to restore the entire system in some cases that way.

If all you want is the jobs (which are held in the BEDB database), you can just backup the BEDB.bak file which is created during each nightly maintenance.
