Data backup scenario in case of Enterprise and ArcGIS Sever,

Question asked by Jamal432@gmail.com on Jan 26, 2013
Data backup scenario in case of Enterprise and ArcGIS Sever,

I�??m wondering about the best practice to back up the enterprise and arcgis server data as all the data will be physically stored on the server machine but fragmented in more than one folder


Facts:

1. The data in case of sql will be stored on the path below

\\P2\c\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA

[ATTACH=CONFIG]21099[/ATTACH]

2. Two other folders will maintain data



\\P2\c\arcgisserver

\\P2\c\inetpub

[ATTACH=CONFIG]21100[/ATTACH]

Now:

1. How about saving the mxd that is needed to be published? Must it be saved on the server or on the client machine? What is the consequences in each case?

2. Is the best solution to back up (such fragmented data) is to take an image to the entire C drive such that in case of failure all the backed up data will be restored as it was before the failure.

3. Is other any other better scenario?


Thank you

Best

Jamal
