Backup CPPM

Does anyone know of a way to backup Clearpass Policy Manager without going into the GUI? I've tried from the CLI but the backup command does not give an option for backup to say a TFTP. I also cannot connect with WinSCP to establish an SSH connection. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Backup CPPM

Sorry to revive this thread but does anybody have a proper way to automate backups?

This realy should be scriptable and the CLI backup command doesn't seem to leave place for indeed ftp or any other server option tpo transfer your backups to.

Re: Backup CPPM

This would depend on what you are backing up. If you want to do a full back up its not recommended. CPPM will do an automatic backup every night. You can configure if you want just config or config/sessions

The backup runs around 1 am every night. Currently the time is a locked in value.

Re: Backup CPPM

Is there a way to offload the backup to a samba or nfs share? I can run a script on a linux machine to do the file copy however, there do not appear to be any options to do this under the appadmin login through ssh.The automated backup feature is great until the harddrive on the clear pass server dies.

Re: Backup CPPM

Hello, could someone tell me how to deal with two pairs of cluster CPPM. I test on the first cluster that is ok, I try to change the config file-info to put a second cluster but it does not work, only the first is ok. I'm version 6.1
Thank you for your help
