Backup Cisco Unity

Hi all,

Someone can suggest me how to macke a completly system backup of Unity Server ?

I have seen that Veritas Backup is supported, but is possible to perform the backup with microsoft backup ?

Someone has already done the system backup without veritas ?

Thank's for any suggestion .....

Re: Backup Cisco Unity

Use the DiRT backup utility found at

This will export your configuration to a flat file

Then backup that file and the DiRT backup and restore files (since you need to use the same version to recover) using the tools of your choice. Veritas is always a solid choice.

In case of a recovery you will rebuilt a clean Unity server (if you have a ghosted copy of a clean install you can have a quick recovery). Do not do any configuration on the unity server. Restore your backup of the DiRT backup and recovery files and the flat file unity backup. Install DiRT Restore. Then run the DiRT restore (make sure it is the same version that you used for the backup). Your system should be back up and running.
