To save the backup

This method is excellent for a Windows deployment.

This backup will make a TAR backup of the whole configuration, including audio recordings. Because the file might get potentially large, you should perform this action in times when there is not too much going on in the system. This will prevent you from interfering with the service and will ensure that you get an integer snapshot of the system state.

  1. From the Systems tab, click the here link, as shown in the following image:

  2. When prompted, save the file on the local computer.

    Important:The size of the file is limited by the “Max. size of a configuration backup file” setting (see the performance settings on page 37). If the TAR file exceeds the configured size, the backup will fail and you will be returned with an empty file. Therefore, be sure to check whether the file size is okay after storing the backup. If there is a problem, consider making the file system backup manually.

To restore the backup on version 4

To restore a configuration, the file must be loaded through the web interface. As with saving the configuration, this may be time-intensive, so be sure to do this when no calls are on the system. The system restoral will first erase your existing configuration, so be careful with this step.

  1. From the Systems tab, click Browse to locate the file to be restored (the full path of the file is required). This file is the one you backed up in the previous section.

  2. Click Save to load the selected file. This will load the selected file and the system will have the new configuration.

    Warning: The Factory Reset button on this page will load a default configuration file from the file system. All data will be erased. Note: The global parameter (max_tcp_length) can accommodate the large TAR files. You will need to set this before running the backup/restore. Currently, this value is in bytes, so you will need to provide a value similar to 384000000 (for 384 MB).


To restore the backup on version 5

To restore a configuration, the file must be loaded through the web interface. As with saving the configuration, this may be time-intensive, so be sure to do this when no calls are on the system. The system restoral will first erase your existing configuration, so be careful with this step.

Scroll down to Maintenance to Configuration. under Save/Restore Configuration you can upload your domain.tar.

If restoration is not successful you can always copy the snom/snomONE items in the working directories except the pbxctrl.exe since we are assuming that this is for a new installation.
