Tech Tip Friday: Backups
Backup plans for EV have to contain at a minimum the following three items:
- Store locations
- All EV databases (directory and stores)
Additionally you can also backup MSMQ's, and Shopping Cart locations but those aren't strictly required.
One more trick that can be easy to miss is to make sure that all items are backed up at the same point in time. If you just backed up your databases and a user manages to archive something before you can get the stores done then you're facing possible dataloss in a DR scenario. Snapshot it all at the same time.
Tune in next Friday for another Tech Tip.
