Backup Server Files

automated backups

Server Backup and Maintenance Automation http://kb.tableausoftware.com/articles/knowledgebase/server-maintenance?keywords=backup%20server%20options

manual backup

  1. Open a command prompt as an administrator and type the following:
cd “C:Files (x86)Server\8.0\bin”
  1. Create a backup file by typing
tabadmin backup <filename> —stop-server -d

where:

<filename> is the name or location and name of your backup file.
The -d option appends the date to the filename.
For example:
 tabadmin backup C:—stop-server -d  

The —stop-server option stops the server for the backup and then restarts it when it is done.
