Backing Up the Entire eSight System (Windows)

Backing Up the Entire eSight System (Windows)

Only the following models support backup and restoration of the entire eSight system: Huawei 2288H V5, RH2288H V3, and RH5885H V3 servers on which the operating system Windows Server 2012 is installed. VMs are not supported.

Backing up and restoring the entire Windows system are performed using the Windows Server Backup tool.

The Windows Server Backup function is developed and provided by Microsoft with features of quick, flexible, and versatile performance. As a result, restoration is getting more efficient.

Do not run the Disk Defragmenter during backup, as it may cause more backup time and unexpected resource problems.

Besides, do not set the sleeping mode in Power Options.

When recovering the operating system drive, ensure that discs can be properly read and written or IP address has been configured for the controller card for accessing and mounting .iso files.

One drive can only process one backup task at one time.

This document only introduces the case of backup to the local hard disks.

Backup

  1. Assign a new drive letter for backup.
    NOTE:

    To back up data to a local hard disk, select an idle drive and ensure that the free space in the drive must be greater than the total space used of the drive to be backed up.

    If there is a large amount of data, it is recommended that another hard disk be inserted for backup.

    If there is no new hard disk and only two drive letters exist, assign a new drive letter for backup. Backup data must be stored in a hard disk of the NTFS format.

    To copy backup data from one server to another (cold backup), ensure that the two servers are the same.

    1. Log in to the Windows operating system as the administrator user.
      NOTE:

      If security hardening has been completed for the Windows operating system, log in to the server as the SWMaster user.

    2. Choose Start > Windows PowerShell.

    3. Enter diskmgmt.msc to enable the disk management tool.

    4. Right-click drive D and select Shrink Volume.

    5. Enter the value of the amount of space to shrink. According to the actual situation, the amount of space to shrink cannot be larger than the size of available shrink space. (10 GB is used as an example here). Click Shrink.

      After compression, a new partition will be generated.

    6. Right-click the new partition that has not been assigned and click New Simple Volume.

    7. Click Next.

    8. Click Next. The maximum size of the simple volume is set by default and cannot be changed.
