How to collect weekly backups on Airwave instead of daily

Aruba Employee
Q:

Airwave runs nightly backup everyday and stores last 4 backups.

 

Is it possible to tweak Airwave to run backups weekly (on a given day of week)?



A:

We have added this feature in the 8.0.8 release of Airwave. On this release we can schedule weekly backups.

 

Below is the way to configure it.

We have added a new flag in the DB, enable it by running the below command.

[root@localhost mercury]# dbc " update seas_config set backup_weekly_day = 1";
 

Please note the integer value  relates to the day of the week.

 1 = Monday, 2 = Tuesday and  7 = Sunday.

 

The above command will enable AMP to run the backup each Monday. 

Note: The nightly maintenance will continue to run each night. Hence the old logs/db will be cleaned as per the data retention settings.

 

If in future its required to disable this option, we can run the below command to do so.

[root@localhost mercury]# dbc " update seas_config set backup_weekly_day = NULL";
