Unity Express Backup: Can we use DNS name of FTP server instead of IP address?

Gentlemen!

In the Unity Express system, can we use DNS name of FTP server (Microsoft FTP Server) instead of IP address in the General configuartion for Backup Server?

e.g.  FTP://FTP_Server_Name/Directory

Additionally we need to configure/add DNS server name in the Domain Name settings under system menu. Is there any additional configuration would require for setting up FTP server with DNS entry & above config?

Regards,

Sky_Voice

Have you tried doing so?

Either way the result, that would have you saved yourself a question and having to wait for an answer.

Hi Sky_Voice,

This is a supported config

Backing Up and Restoring Data
Last Updated: May 12, 2010

Cisco Unity Express backup and restore functions use an FTP server to store and retrieve data. The backup function copies the files from the Cisco Unity Express application to the FTP server and the restore function copies the files from the FTP server to the Cisco Unity Express application. The FTP server can reside anywhere in the network if the backup and restore functions can access it with an IP address or hostname.

We recommend that backups be done regularly to preserve voice-mail messages and configuration data.

Backup and restore commands are available in configuration mode and in offline mode.

•In configuration mode, commands are available to set the following parameters:

–Number of backup files to keep (the oldest file is deleted).

–URL of the FTP server where the files will be stored.

•In offline mode, perform the backup or restore procedure. Decide the following:

–Type of files to be backed up: all files (configuration and data), only configuration files, or only data files. Data files consist of voice-mail messages. Configuration files consist of all other system and application parameters.

–URL of the FTP server where the files will be stored.
