A StorageZones Controller is installed on your local site and you are responsible for backing it up. To fully protect your deployment, you should take a snapshot of the StorageZones Controller server, back up your configuration, and Prepare StorageZones Controller for file recovery.
It is critical that you back up your
configuration as described in this topic. For example, if you do not have a back up and someone accidentally deletes a zone, you cannot recover the folders and files in that zone.
Controller installer includes a PowerShell module with commands that back up
and restore a primary StorageZones Controller configuration settings. Your
backup will include configuration information for zones, StorageZones for
ShareFile Data, StorageZone Connector for SharePoint, and StorageZone Connector for Network File Shares.
The backup and
restore commands require that you run the 32-bit version of PowerShell under
the same user context as StorageZones Controller. To set the user context, use
the tool PSExec. That tool is available for download from
Note: These steps do
not apply to a secondary StorageZones Controller. To recover a secondary
StorageZones Controller, reinstall StorageZones Controller on the server and
then join the server to the primary StorageZones Controller.
