Backing Up Data Manually

DevGuide2.png Purpose: To back up a snapshot of all data that Genesys SIP Voicemail keeps in the server storage directory.
Start

  1. Open the directory GSVM/tools/bin
  2. Run the program ./datasnapshot This command backs up Genesys SIP Voicemail data by saving snapshots to the directories GSVM/storage/data/sipvm/snapshots and GSVM/storage/data/system/snapshots.
  3. Move or copy these directories (GSVM/storage/data/sipvm/snapshots and GSVM/storage/data/system/snapshots) to a backup location.

End
Notes:

  • You do not need to stop GSVM to perform this backup procedure.
  • You can create a cron job to perform this backup automatically.
  • This manual backup procedure stores multiple backups; nothing is overwritten. You must manually delete older backups if limited disk space is an issue.
