ACS Backup

To perform a backup (including the ADE OS data) and place the backup in a repository, use the backup command in the EXEC mode.

backup backup-name repository repository-name

Syntax Description

Repository command.


Location where the files should be backed up   to. Up to 30 alphanumeric characters.


No default behavior or values.

Command Modes


Usage Guidelines

Performs a backup of ACS and ADE OS data and places the backup in a repository.

When you are using this command for ACS, the backup files include:

•Database—Database files include data related to ACS as well as the ADE OS. You can view backup files of the ADE-OS at:



•Database password file—, located at /opt/CSCOacs/conf.

•Certificate store—Located at /opt/CSCOacs/conf.

•Viewer database—If the ACS node you are backing up has Viewer enabled.

You can use the show backup history command to display the backup operations and determine whether they succeeded.

If the backup fails, you may be able to use the show logging command (or the show acs-logs command if you are backing up ACS logs) to view troubleshooting information. Failures in the ACS aspect of the backup are clearly described in messages that are displayed on the terminal.
