Scheduling a one-off backup

Schedule a one-time backup.

Schedule a backup to run once later, such as during off-peak hours, rather than running an ad hoc backup now.


Important: The Backup Service requires control over the data and structure of its destination locations. The AWS S3 bucket and the Local file system destinations must be dedicated for use only by OpsCenter. Any additional directories or files in those destinations can prevent the Backup Service from properly conducting a Backup or Restore operation.

  3. In the Scheduled Backups tab, click Create New.
    The Create Backup dialog appears.
  4. In the Schedule section, select the Don't Repeat option for the frequency.
  5. Make your other selections and click Create Backup.
