How to backup and restore SquaredUp for SCOM
Backing up and restoring SquaredUp is relatively simple.
If you are using SquaredUp with high availability (HA) see Backing up and restoring the HA share.
Backing up SquaredUp
We recommend you stop the SquaredUp application pool and then backup the entire application folder, which by default is located at
If you wish you can just backup the
C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv5\User folder, as this where your specific dashboards and settings are located. Within the User folder the
Packages folder contains your user-published dashboards and perspectives and
Configuration folder contains your SquaredUp configuration settings.
Log on to SquaredUp and complete the setup to configure SquaredUp, such as activating your licence and configuring the connection to the SCOM Data Warehouse. If you need an additional activation please contact SquaredUp Support.
In IIS stop the squaredupv5 application pool.
Restart the squaredupv5 application pool.
If you restore to a new machine or operating system, you will need to reconfigure any API connections. API connections are encrypted, so any old connections will not be accessible because they cannot be decrypted on the new machine.
If you migrate to a new SCOM management group then the SCOM IDs of objects and custom groups will change. Any tiles that have been scoped to specific objects or custom groups will need the scope to be reconfigured. Tiles using classes or groups contained within sealed management packs will not be affected.
