When you attach a backup server to a specific compute zone, the backups on current backup server will be created only for compute resources within this compute zone.

Ensure that Update any compute zone permission is on before managing compute zone backup servers. For more information about permissions refer to the Permissions section of this guide.


View Compute Zone Backup Servers

To view compute zone backup servers:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Admin > Settings menu and click the Compute Zones icon.
  2. Click the label of the compute zone.
  3. On the screen that appears, click the Manage Backup Servers link in the Tools section.
  4. On the screen that follows you'll see a list of all backup servers currently associated with this compute zone together with their details:
    • Label - the name of the backup server
    • IP Address -  backup server IP Address
    • Enabled -  whether backup server is enabled or not


Add Backup Server to Compute Zone

You can add backup servers to a compute zone only if the the backup server belongs to a backup server zone of the same type as the compute zone. For more information refer to Zone Types.

To add backup server to a compute zone:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Admin > Settings menu and click the Compute Zones icon.
  2. Click the label of the Compute zone you want to manage backup servers for.
  3. On the screen that appears, click the Manage Backup Servers link in the Tools section.
  4. On the screen that follows you'll see a list of all backup servers currently associated with this compute zone.
  5. Choose one from the drop-down menu and click the Add Backup Server button.


Remove Backup Server from Compute Zone

To remove a backup server from the  compute zone:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Admin > Settings menu and click the Compute Zones icon.
  2. Click the label of the Compute zone you want to manage backup servers for.
  3. On the screen that appears, click the Manage Backup Servers link in the Tools section.
  4. On the screen that follows you'll see a list of all backup servers currently associated with this compute zone.
  5. Click the   icon next to backup server you want to remove. You'll be asked for confirmation before the backup server is removed.

Be cautious when detaching a backup server from compute zone. It will still be possible to restore a backup and convert the backups to templates, though you will not be able to provision a server from that template.
