You can schedule backups of virtual servers (VS disks) as required. For example, you can set up a schedule to back up your disks once a week. Scheduled VS backups enable specific backups to be scheduled for individual VSs. OnApp supports only normal backups for ISO virtual servers, which include all the data from from the server's disk.

View ISO Virtual Server Backup Schedules


To view the list of backup schedules for an ISO virtual server:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Virtual Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the ISO virtual server you're interested in.
  3. Click the Storage tab, then select Disks.
  4. On the screen that appears, click the Actions button next to the disk you want to back up, then select Schedule for Backups.
  5. On the screen that appears, you will see the list of backup schedules along with their details:
    • Date - time when the schedule was created
    • Target - the disk for which the schedule was created
    • Action - scheduled action
    • Frequency - how frequently the backup will take place according to the period set. For example, frequency of 2 and a period of days will take a backup every 2 days
    • Period - backup period: days, weeks, months or years
    • Rotation period  - number of backups after which the first backup will be deleted

      Despite of the input value, for normal backups (when Disk is the target) rotation period is always 1. Thus, only 1 normal auto-backup with specific frequency, period and target will be stored in the system.

    • Next Start - the date and the hour of the next backup
    • User - user who created the backup schedule
    • Status - schedule status
    • Actions - click the Actions icon to edit or delete the backup schedule

 

Create ISO Virtual Server Backup Schedule

    • Frequency - how frequently the backup will take place according to the period set. For example, duration of 2 and a period of days will take a backup every 2 days
    • Period - backup period: days, weeks, months or years. Period must be unique for each backup target (disk or server).
    • Rotation period  - number of backups after which the first backup will be deleted.
