UCCX cluster backups

Unanswered Question
Mar 4th, 2010


When setting up backups for a uccx cluster, do you point both servers to the same shared folder or can you point them to different folders.When the backup runs on the master, does it backup the slave as well or does the slave run its own backup?



I have this problem too.

The cluster is always backed up in it's entirety to a single folder. There's really only a small amount of stuff that is node-specific on a HA cluster anyway...

The actual implementation of it varies a little depending on which version of CCX you have.

Dark Ages (pre 5) you would install BARS target on one CCX server in the cluster, and BARS server on the CallManager (typically). Then UCCX and CCM would end up in one big .tar. Otherwise you could have a seperate BARS server to split them out.

After v5, you have a built-in Backup/Restore function which you admin from the AppAdmin page, but still exports a single .tar file for the cluster.
