Automating Backups of JSCAPE MFT Server

Posted by Chris Frisch on Mon, Mar 26, 2012 @ 05:03 PM

Overview

In most production environment scenarios it is prudent for an administrator to keep backups of JSCAPE MFT Server configurations.  This can be especially critical with large and complex configurations in the event that a JSCAPE MFT Server configuration may need to be restored.  Such an event may be the failure of a hard disk that JSCAPE MFT Server is installed and running on.  In the event that you may need to reinstall JSCAPE MFT Server on a new drive, having a backup of an advanced configuration could save you a substantial amount of time.  Maybe you find the need at some point to roll the configuration of your JSCAPE MFT Server back to a configuration you had on a previous date.
