You should set your initial System Backup Settings before you need to back up and restore the NetScaler MAS system.
1. Navigate to System > System Administration. Under Backup Settings, click System Backup Settings.
2. On the Confgure System Backup Settings page, specify the following:
- Number of backups to retain. You can only retain upto 10 backups.
- Encrypt the backup file.
- Enable external transfer. You can transfer a copy of a copy of your backup file to another system as a precautionary measure. When you want to restore the configuration, you have to first upload the file to the NetScaler MAS server and then perform the restore operation. Specify the server, user name and password, port, the transfer protocol to be used, and the directory path. To learn more about external transfer, see Transferring a NetScaler MAS Backup File to an External System.
