Understanding Manual System Backups

Manually make a copy of the Vocera system as it is configured at the time of the system backup.

You can perform a manual backup at any time. After performing a manual backup, the latest backup file appears at the bottom of the Available Backups list.

When the number of backups exceeds the configured maximum limit for your installation, the oldest file is deleted. See Configuring the Automatic Backup General Settings for information about enabling daily backups and configuring backup retention.

Create a system backup before restoring an earlier captured backup, or initiating any upgrades or installations that might impact the Vocera system.

Important: Make a manual backup just prior to restoring a saved backup; restoring a backup is an irreversible action.
