Set Automatic Backup

Notice: The Backup/Restore tool page has been removed from the System tab. It is located as a menu selection under the newly introduced System Tools tab. This is a location change only; the functionality remains the same. While the image below reflects the new menu structure, some of the images of the UCX Web-based Configuration Utility contained within this documentation may not yet be updated to reflect this change.

You can use the Web-based Configuration Utility to schedule automatic periodic backups of your UCX system's configuration.

Note that Voicemail and Call Recordings are excluded from automatic backups.

System specific information like Network Parameters, Admin password, Time Settings, Security certificates and License are not backed up nor restored. Other configuration information that are not backed up and restored include: Remote SMTP and Fax Clients.

You can select one of the following periodic backup options:

  • Daily
  • Weekly
  • Monthly

When automatic backups are enabled, the backup process is started at 23:59 on the day that corresponds to the selected option:

  • Each day for the Daily option
  • Sunday for the Weekly option
  • 28th of the month for the Monthly option

To configure automatic backups of your UCX system configuration data, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCX Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select System Tools
  3. From the left hand menu, select Backup/Restore
  4. In the drop-down list box beside the Set Automatic Backup button, select the desired frequency of automatic backups (Disabled, Daily, Weekly or Monthly)
  5. Press the Set Automatic Backup button to save the configuration
