When a backup configuration file is created, Content Security Reporter automatically saves the report server settings, which can be used to restore CSR to an earlier configuration.
NOTE: The backup configuration file does not create a backup of any reports, queries, or Trellix ePO settings.
The saved configuration settings include:
Database connection settings
|Saves the configuration settings that allow Content Security Reporter to communicate with the database.|
Database maintenance settings
Saves scheduled database maintenance job settings and status messages.
|Saves log source configuration and browse time settings.|
Saves database and system performance settings.
System status message
Saves log parsing job history and database maintenance settings.
Back up configuration settings
Create a backup file to restore configuration settings after upgrading the Content Security Reporter software, recover from a system failure, or move settings from one installation to another.
CAUTION: If you plan to use a backup file after uninstalling and re-installing CSR, save the backup file to a location other than the Content Security Reporter installation directory.
- Select Menu > Configuration > Report Server Settings.
- From the Setting Categories menu, select System Backup.
- From the Actions menu, select Backup Now.
- When the System Backup message appears, click OK.
The backup process can take several minutes. A backup123456789 folder is created where 123456789 is the time stamp. By default, the folder is created in C:\Program Files\...Content Security Reporter\reporter\conf\. A backup.xml file is saved in the backup folder. To simply create a backup file, you can wait until the file is created, then continue working without restoring it.
Restore configuration settings
Restore the configuration settings to return to a previous state, or after the software is re-installed.
NOTE: The backup folder and backup file must have read and write permissions for the same account running CSR.
- Close Trellix ePO.
NOTE: If you need to re-install the previous version of CSR that you were running, use the Microsoft Windows Programs and Features to remove CSR, and then re-install the previous version.
- Stop CSR services.
- Go to your backup folder (by default, C:\Program Files\...\Content Security Reporter\reporter\conf\) to locate the backup file that was created.
NOTE: If a backup folder already exists, do not create a new one.
4. Copy the backup file from the backup123456789 folder to the backup folder in the conf directory.
NOTE: If you re-installed CSR, copy these files and directories you backed up to the corresponding locations in the C:\Program Files\...\Content Security Reporter\reporter\ directory:
- Restart CSR.
- Log on to Trellix ePO.
