Backup Concept

Setting up a backup for the data stored on the database server should be done immediately after installing the productive database instance in order to be able to restore all data quickly and completely in case of hardware and software cashes.
The proper implementation and activation of the selected backup concept is the responsibility of the user.


Directories to be backed up

All local and global data and settings are located in the Onyx database on the database server in the default installation directory ..\Onyx3Server.\\. If the paths for the database ..\OnyxDB and/or images ..\Pictures were moved to other locations during the installation (e.g. to another partition or to a NAS), then the information in question will be physically located at that location.

In order to back up all relevant data so that it can be restored without loss on the same or on a new computer in the event of a hardware or software problem, there are several backup concepts that should be selected, configured and applied depending on the requirements in the specific facility.
It is recommended to consult an employee qualified in IT matters who has the required knowledge and access rights for a correct setup.\


File Backup

During a file backup the directories

  • ..\OnyxDB and
  • ..\Pictures

at their configured location are copied manually or by means of external backup software completely or differentially to a backup medium. If possible, this should be an external data medium that is also stored outside the facility in order to exclude loss in the event of events such as fire, burglary, etc.
A differential backup is recommended only for the image path, while the database folder should always be copied completely.

Live Backup

During a live backup, the directories

  • ..\Backup and
  • ..\Pictures

are copied to a backup medium at their configured location either manually or differentially using external backup software. If possible, this should be an external data medium that is also stored outside the facility in order to rule out loss in the event of events such as fire, burglary, etc.

Details


Manual backup

Open the user interface of the database program OnyxDBServer (as described above) and start the manual backup by button click on register Manual|.

Data restore

Open the user interface of the database program OnyxDBServer (as described above) and start data recovery from an Onyx backup file *.OnB using button click on register |Manual|.

Note
Data recovery can only be performed if the database program has been stopped beforehand. If the images were backed up separately, as recommended above, the backed up image directory ..\Pictures must be copied back manually before restarting the database program.
The backup file *.OnB can be manually unpacked as an archive by renaming it to *.zip. The archived directories ..\OnyxDB and ..\Pictures can be copied into a new installation to perform the data restore manually (see also Move Onyx Database Server 3.2).

Disable backup

If you back up the server directory daily anyway as part of an external backup, you should disable the internal backup in the settings of the database server to save disk space.
