Description

5 years ago
Part of the continuity plan for Tableau Server is to store backups of the server in another location then the server itself. Please create such a storage location and provide SCP access so I may script copying the nightly backups to this location. I estimate we need 40GB for now. Each backup is about 3GB and we store 7 days at a time. Please let me know if you have any questions!

Ben client is running on it now. Do you want us to backup C:\tableau-backups ? Is that what needs to be backed up ? At what frequency are you creating those backups ?

Hi Ludovic,

Is it possible to take full-disk backups? If not this directory will be fine and I will schedule nightly backups of tableau to be created in that location.

Thanks,
Ben

We usually don't do that - but we don't have much windows servers so for this time I'll save the full disk.
