Security Center 5.8

Once the Backup and restore failover mode is enabled, all manual backups of the Directory database must be performed from the Directory Manager's Database failover tab in Config Tool.

What you should know

If the Backup and restore failover mode is not enabled, back up the Directory database from Server Admin.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the System task, and click the Roles view.
  2. Select the Directory Manager () role, and click the Database failover tab.
  3. In the Master backup section, click Generate full backup.


A full Directory backup is generated in the Security Center backup folder (default=C:\SecurityCenterBackup\Backups). All configuration files (config, gconfig, and xml files) are backed up as well.
