Other Backup Methods
For Eclipse customers wishing to use an alternate, non-supported backup method, here are a few guidelines:
- All backup support (i.e. installation, configuration, monitoring and file restores) will be the responsibility of the customer. All service requests related to non-supported backup software will be billable.
- The Eclipse database backup is not “valid” unless the database is suspended and/or there is absolutely no activity taking place.
- Storage-level (i.e. LVM, filesystem, SAN) snapshots can be combined with database suspension to provide a “valid” backup source for active servers.
- The backup job should include the important Eclipse data files.
