How do I back up and restore Forcepoint DLP?
Backup and Restore | Forcepoint DLP | 8-June-2020
Back up your Forcepoint DLP system periodically to safeguard your policies, forensics, configuration data, fingerprints, encryption keys, and more.
Configuring and running the Forcepoint DLP backup task
To configure the Forcepoint DLP backup process:
1.
Log on to the Forcepoint Security Manager and go to the Data > Settings > General > Backup page.
2.
Enter a Path for storing backup files and, if necessary, Credentials for an account with read, write, and delete privileges to the path. The path must be in UNC format. C: is the default location for storing backups.
3.
Enter a value between 1 and 60 in the How many backup copies do you want to keep? field to specify how many separate backups to maintain (5, by default).
Each backup is stored in a separate folder. When the maximum number of copies is reached, Forcepoint DLP reuses the oldest folder, overwriting the previous information.
4.
Indicate whether or not to include forensics in the backup.
5.
Click OK to save the settings.
Schedule backups when the system isn't under significant load. Each backup contains a complete snapshot of the system. The process collects needed information from other Forcepoint DLP machines.
To schedule the backup task:

3.
Right-click the Websense TRITON AP-DATA Backup task and select Enable.

Right-click Websense TRITON AP-DATA Backup again and select Properties, then select the Triggers tab.
5.
Click Edit, and edit the schedule as required.
6.
Click OK twice.
If requested, enter a management server administrator password to confirm the changes to the task.
To run the task immediately, right-click Websense TRITON AP-DATA Backup and select Run. Running this task creates a DSSBackup folder and a time stamp folder in the destination folder you specified. For example: \DSSBackup\2-6-2016-2-10-35-AM, where the numbers stand for the month, day, year, hour, minutes, and seconds.
The DSSBackup folder includes these items:
