Currently, there is no supported method to back up the Blue Coat Reporter 10.x VA instance. The Resolution section below provides a workaround that has not been officially tested by Blue Coat, but has been successfully accomplished in the field.
Step 1--Stop Reporter (or Unload Database)
Step 2--Create Snapshot with vSphere Client.
In the VM interface, right-click the ReporterVM inventory and select Snapshot > Take Snapshot.
Right-click the ReporterVM inventory and select Snapshot > Snapshot Manager.
Load the database: Administration > General Settings > REPORTER SETTINGS > DATA SETTINGS>DATABASES.
