Regularly back up configuration information for Forcepoint web, data, and email security solutions. This provides protection in case of a serious system failure, and makes it possible to revert to a previous configuration when needed. Data saved by the backup process can also be used to transfer configuration settings to a different server or appliance.
In most circumstances, the backup and restore process can be used to transfer configuration settings only between servers with the same operating system. In other words, it is possible move from Windows to Windows or Linux to Linux, but not from Windows to Linux (or vice versa).
When backing up a Forcepoint management server, note that there are separate backup processes for the management infrastructure and other components on the machine. Synchronize the infrastructure backup with the backup procedures for other components.
