This article describes the process to back up the InfoBurst server environment. This process assumes the server hosting InfoBurst is a virtual machine. Please open a help desk ticket for guidance if the server hosting InfoBurst is not virtual.


  • Schedule frequent backups of the InfoBurst database repository. We recommend weekly backups at a minimum and nightly backupsy backups if possible.
  • No Bursts or XDCs should be running during the backup process

Backup & Restoration Process

Backup Restoration
