You can back up a Mirage server or the Mirage Management server. Server state backup involves the backup of all storage volumes and the database.

About this task


Configure your server backup software to stop the Mirage server cluster and the Mirage Management server during the snapshot and database backup time. Back up the SIS and the database using a point-in-time representation so that the backup is consistent across all the volumes and the database.

Contact VMware support for assistance with this procedure.


Copy the Mirage storage volumes to the backup location, preferably through a snapshot mechanism, and also back up the database.

If storage snapshots are not used, verify that the Mirage servers and the Management server are stopped for the full duration of the backup.
