Backup Solution

Easily build a backup solution in a few quick steps.

This example shows the ease of building bespoke systems with Warewolf .
We use this solution ourselves because it’s simple and scales well.

Setup for your backup solution:

  1. From your Warewolf Server connect to the Shared Resources Server at http://store.warewolf.io:3142.
  2. Deploy the Backup folder to yourself (localhost).
  3. Click here to Download the template text file and save it.
  4. Open the template and add in the items you want backed up. The format is described by the header and the examples below that should be replaced with your backups.
  5. In Warewolf, open Backups > Backup Strategy Implementation. 
  6. In the first Assign set the path of the downloaded template and the email address you want to be notified on if a backup fails.
  7. Scroll to the bottom of the workflow and set up an email Source by selecting New Email Source… from the Mail Source drop down on the Email tool.
  8. Debug your workflow by pressing F5.
  9. When you are satisfied with the setup you want, click on Task in the ribbon and put your backups on a schedule.
