    Trying to automate the backup procedure without using the data puller software.  Clearpass is currently performing daily autobackups..  I will write a script to grab this file and offload to another system  Where is this autobackup file being stored?

    Are you on ClearPass 6.5? There is native backup functionality that will
    copy files from ClearPass to a remote SCP or SFTP server.

    No, I am on 6.4.4.  Maybe worth it to upgrade?

    O you mean page 442?  I already have the autobackups working.. I need the location of the file so I can offload it.

    Cappalli made a typo.  check the clearpass 6.5 userguide on page 522. 

    Or check "Administration » External Servers » File Backup Servers"  on a 6.5 CPPM.

     

    You'll see how to configure an external backupserver that is configurable for SFTP or SCP.

    OK, I upgraded to 6.5 and setup a file backup server.  Does it offload the backup file daily?  how can I test the intitial communication?

    That schedule is currently locked, correct?

     

    Thanks.

    Yes it is. I have an enhancement request to make it a configurable item, hoping it will arrive in our next major release 6.6.

    Following this one, I am on 6.7 and I see no way to do a "back up now" or set my own schedule. (So can't test my credentials and settings yet, just gotta wait till 1:10 am tonight?

    In order to test our setup, I had to call and put in a support ticket. They had to remote into our VM appliance with a support login and run a script that is already stored there. Seems like a pretty good waste of time if the script already exists.
