About backing up the Symantec Control Compliance Suite server components

You should include all of the Symantec Control Compliance Suite server components in your backup strategy. For some components, it is easiest to re-create the installation of a failed component. For other components, you back up data and reinstall the component software. All of the certificates that the Symantec Control Compliance Suite components use must be backed up.

As part of your backup strategy, record the following information for every Symantec Control Compliance Suite component host:

  • Computer name

  • Computer model

  • Installed RAM

  • Number of installed CPUs

  • CPU type and speed

  • Number and size of installed hard disks

  • Installed operating system version

If the component hosts one of the Symantec Control Compliance Suite databases, you must also record the following:

  • The installed version of Microsoft SQL Server

  • The server edition

  • The root directory

  • The minimum memory that is assigned to the SQL Server

  • The security configuration

  • The number of allowed connections

  • Assigned users

  • SQL Server database settings

Table: Server component backup strategies describes the backup approach you should use for each component.
