Third party SolarWinds N-central server backup

Backing up the SolarWinds N-central database enables you to create a copy of the database on the SolarWinds N-central server. This provides a backup that you can restore from in the event of a hard disk failure or data loss.

Third party backups/snapshots are not supported. However, if you choose use a third party backup solution, stop or shut down the SolarWinds N-central server before performing the backup/snapshot.

SolarWinds MSP recommends using the SolarWinds N-central server backup included with the software. For more information, see Back up the SolarWinds N-central server.

If you are using the hosted version of SolarWinds N-central, backups are automatically performed by SolarWinds MSP support. No further action is required on your part.
