    IPAM DB Backup best practice guide

    ahanslin

      Hi

      I am looking for a best practice guide for back up the IPAM database.

      Any input is welcomed.

      Thank you

      Albert

          It's simple.

          Click Start > All Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Database Utilities > Database Manager.

          Locate and right-click your database in the Database Manager tree in the left pane, and then click

          Backup Database.

          The IPAM and NPM Databases are not separate.

            Albert,

            The IP Address Manager is using the same database as the Orion NPM.  IPAM is just a module that adds onto the NPM.  That said, all you need to do is set up a back up for your NPM SQL database. 

            There is a tool in the Orion Start Menu that will allow you to manage your database and has a back up utility in it.  This tool is the Orion Database Manager (Start>Programs>SolarWinds Orion>Advanced Features>Database Manager)

            If you open this up and connect to your SQL server, you can right click on the database and start a scheduled back up.  This backup will create a *.bak file.  Once you start the backup, you can use another utility to move and archive the file elsewhere in the network. 

            ...and then

             

            Thanks,
