After your Update Manager database instance and Update Manager server are installed and operational, perform standard database maintenance processes.

Maintaining your Update Manager database involves several tasks:

  • Monitoring the growth of the log file and compacting the database log file, as needed. See the documentation for the database type that you are using.

  • Scheduling regular backups of the database.

  • Backing up the database before any Update Manager upgrade.

See your database documentation for information about backing up your database.
