How to backup and restore Squared Up

Backing up and restoring Squared up is relatively simple.

If you are using Squared Up with high availability (HA) see Backing up and restoring the HA share

Backing up Squared Up

We recommend you stop the squaredupv4 application pool and then backup the entire application folder, which by default is located at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv4.

If you wish you can just backup the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv4\User folder, as this where your specific dashboards and settings are located. Within the Users folder the Packages folder contains your user-published dashboards and perspectives and Configuration folder contains your Squared Up configuration settings.

Restoring Squared Up

  1. Download and install Squared Up.

  2. Log on to Squared Up and complete the setup to configure Squared Up, such as activating your licence and configuring the connection to the SCOM Data Warehouse. If you need an additional activation please contact support@squaredup.com.

  3. In IIS stop the squaredupv4 application pool.

  4. Restore the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SquaredUpv4\User folder.

  5. Restart the squaredupv4 application pool.

If you restore to a new machine or operating system, you will need to reconfigure any OMS and Web 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.
