The Server ID required to obtain a key cannot be generated until installation is complete. The server will function for 30 days without a key. Apply a key as soon as possible after installation. See License Management for licensing instructions.

Repository Backup

We recommend scheduling a weekly (full) backup of the database or schema hosting the InfoBurst Platform repository. A nightly backup is ideal.
