Chapter 4. Backup and Recovery

So far we have explored how we can set up Configuration Manager and the backend services as highly available, but it does not replace the need for backup. The need for backup will always be there in case of hardware failures and to avoid data loss. There are different components that we need to take backup of. In this chapter, we will cover topics such as:

  • Backup up a site server

  • Backup up content and packages in a Configuration Manager site

  • Other components we need to think of

  • Recovery
