This article provides information on how to backup configuration settings, also known as the system metadata, of your Unitrends appliance.
System metadata, which includes client schedules, storage configuration, and system settings, is automatically backed up as part of a replication or archiving job. In the event of an appliance failure, this metadata is used to restore the appliance through a disaster recovery.
Warning: You should never manually back up a Unitrends system. It automatically protects itself by sending metadata to archive media or a replication target during each archive or replication job.
For more details about backing up system metadata and disaster recovery, see Disaster Recovery in the Recovery-Series and UEB Administrator's Guide.
