Hi OU,

Maybe this will get you started;

Configuring a Storage Location

Before using the Disaster Recover System, you must configure the location where you want the backup file to be stored. Perform the following steps to configure the storage location.

Procedure

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 1 Navigate to the Disaster Recovery System. Log in to Cisco Unified CallManager Administration, choose Disaster Recovery System from the Navigation menu in the upper, right corner of the Cisco Unified CallManager Administration window, and click Go.

The Disaster Recovery System Logon window displays.

Step 2 Log in to the Disaster Recovery System by using the same Administrator username and password that you use for Platform Administration.

Step 3 Navigate to Backup>Storage Location. The Storage Location window displays.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note You can configure the number of backup sets that are stored on a network directory.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 4 Choose one of the following storage destination options and enter the appropriate field values:

Tape Device Stores the backup file on a locally attached tape drive. Choose the appropriate tape device from the list.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note You cannot span tapes or store more than one backup per tape.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Network Directory Stores the backup file on a networked drive that is accessed through an SFTP connection. Enter the following required information:

Server name: Name or IP address of the network server

Path name: Path name for the directory where you want to store the backup file

User name: Valid username for an account on the remote system

Password: Valid password for the account on the remote system

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note You must have access to an SFTP server to configure a network storage location. The SFTP path must exist prior to the backup. The account that is used to access the SFTP server must have write permission for the selected path.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 5 To update these settings, click Save.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note For network directory backups, after you click the Save button, the DRS Master Agent will validate the selected SFTP server. If the user name, password, server name, or directory path is invalid, the save will fail.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 6 Continue with either a manual or a scheduled backup.
