CS-MARS and Archiving - Part 3

The CS-MARS archive process runs daily at 2AM, and it creates a dated directory on the NFS share for its data. You cannot specify a different time to archive the data.

What does the NFS Share directory structure look like?

The pnos directory is where the operating system backups are stored.

A dated directory is also created for each day. Within these daily directories, subdirectories are created for each data type, as shown below.

The primary use of an archive is to restore the appliance in reponse to a catastrophic failure. But the archived data can alse be retrieved manually and viewed.

Now before i go any further into Restoring the appliance, i have a guest article on CS-MARS and Making Use of the Archived Data, which i will publish later.
