In the corporate network environment, to ensure the security of the server, it is necessary to create an image file for the disk partition. However, the commonly used tools such as Ghost and PowerQuest Drive Image are difficult to meet the needs of server backup. After all, the server must run steadily throughout the day. Creating an image file in DOS mode is very troublesome, and the data stored in the hard disk of the server is also dynamically changed. Incremental backup of the image file is not convenient.
The emergence of Acronis True Image Enterprise Server (referred to as ATIES) just solved this problem. It can perform complete backups, incremental backups, and scheduled backups of server disk partitions remotely, greatly reducing the workload of network management.
Remote backup plan
There are two machines, A (server) and B (network management machine). The author wants to apply the ATIES control tool in network management machine B to remotely backup the disk partition in server A. The image file is stored in server A's shared folder 'CPCW'. , And also use the 'scheduled tasks' feature to achieve automatic incremental backups.
Network management steps
◆ Install a control center to lay the foundation for backup;
◆ Remotely deploy Agent to realize the control of network management machine B to server A;
◆ Reasonably set access permissions for shared files;
◆ Implement remote backups and use scheduled tasks to achieve automatic incremental backups.
First, have a control center
In the network management machine B, download the ATIES tool from http://www.fixdown.com/soft/21102.asp?free=gdcnc-down. After decompression, run the 'trueimageenterpriseserver8.exe' installation program to pop up the component installation dialog box. 'Install Acronis True Image Management Console' option, after agreeing to the user license agreement, clicked on the 'NEXT' button all the way to complete the ATIES control center installation.
Second, remote deployment Agent (agent)
To perform a remote backup operation, Agent Agent must be installed remotely for Server A.
In Network Management Machine B, click the 'Start → Programs → Acronis → True image → Acronis true image management console' item. In the ATIES Control Center window, click the 'Install acronis componets to a remote computer' option, enter the 'Remote Installation Wizard' dialog box, click the 'NEXT' button, select the 'Registered components' option, in the next 'program selection
The two program components are listed in the dialog: Acronis true image agent and Acronis true image enterprise server. Here I want to install the agent for server A, so select 'Acronis true image agent' project, and then enter the 'login information' dialog box.
Enter the IP address of server A in the 'Computer' field, such as '192.168.1.29', or click the 'Browse' button. Find server A in the computer browse box, and then in the 'User name' and 'Password' fields. Enter the administrator account name and password for server A, such as the 'cpcwATIES' account. Here I suggest to select 'Allow to reboot remote computer automatically' option, because the agent remote installation, you must restart the system to take effect. Finally click on the 'Proceed' button to start installing the agent remotely for Server A. After the installation is complete, Server A will automatically restart the system.
Third, let the folder share
Here I want to remotely backup the disk partition of server A in network management machine B, and store the 'image file' in the 'CPCW' shared folder of server A. Note here that server A uses the NTFS file system, so access permissions for shared folders are not only restricted by the "share permissions" but also restricted by the access permissions of the NTFS file system. We first need to set reasonable access to the 'CPCW' shared folder on Server A.
1. Set share permissions
In Server A's Explorer, right-click the 'CPCW' shared folder, select 'Properties', switch to the 'Share' tab, click the 'Permissions' button, pop-up 'CPCW permissions' settings dialog box, click 'Add " button, add the "cpcwATIES" account to the "group or user name" list box, and give the account "full control permission", and finally click the "OK" button to complete the sharing permission setting.
2.NTFS access permission settings
The above settings are just shared access rights. After all, the 'CPCW' shared folder is subject to 'shared access rights' and 'NTFS access rights'. If the NTFS file system does not allow the 'cpcwATIES' account to access the share, it will not work.
After switching to the 'Security' tab, first add the 'cpcwATIES' account to the 'Group or User Name' list box, and then set the access right for the account. After selecting the 'cpcwATIES' account, select the 'Read and run, list folder directory, read, modify, and write' items in the 'CcpwATIES Permissions' list box, and finally click the 'OK' button.
After the above operations, the 'CPCW' shared folder access right is set. It should be noted here that the above operation is performed on server A.
Fourth, remote backup from this simple
At this point, the preparations for remote backup have all been completed. In the following, you can remotely back up the disk partition of server A in network management machine B.
1. Connect to server A
In the ATIES Control Center window of the NMS B, click the 'Connect to a remote computer' item. The 'Remotely Connect Computer' dialog box appears. Enter the IP address '192.168.1.29' of the server A in the 'Computer' column, and click ' After the 'Options' button, enter the administrator account name 'cpcwATIES' and the account password of the server A in the 'User name' and 'Password' fields, and click the 'OK' button to enter 'Pick a task for the remote computer'. A window stating that you have successfully connected to server A.
2. The first full manual backup
The following is the beginning of the implementation of remote manual backup server A disk partition. Click the 'Create image' option, the 'Create Image File Wizard' dialog box will pop up, click the 'NEXT' button, and the server A disk partition will be listed in the next dialog box. Here the author to 'C drive' partition as an example, select the 'C drive partition' item, click the 'NEXT' button, specify the storage location for the image file.
In the 'Network Computer' dialog box, find the server A, pop up the login dialog window, enter the administrator account of server A, enter the 'CPCW' shared folder, and then create a name for the image file, such as 'rtj.tib' . Select "mirror mode" below, this is the first time that the author backs up the C drive partition of server A. Therefore, to select the full backup method, select the "Create the full backup image archive" option and click the "NEXT" button. The image file sets up a complex 'protection password' to prevent someone from stealing it. Then you need to set the volume method, compression ratio, etc. for the image file. If there is no special requirement, you can use the default value. Finally, click the 'Proceed' button to start remote backup of server A's C drive partition. After the backup is successful, an image file named 'rtj.tib' is generated in the 'CPCW' shared folder of server A.
3. Plan incremental backup
This completes the first manual backup, but manual backups are very cumbersome each time. ATIES provides the 'Scheduled Tasks' feature that allows you to create backup jobs that can be easily automated.
In the ATIES Control Center window of the NMS B, click the "Schedule" button below to pop up the "Scheduled Tasks Wizard" dialog box. The operation process of the Scheduled Backup Wizard is similar to that of the Manual Backup Wizard, except for "Backup Interval". Parameter settings.
Or take backup server A's C drive partition as an example. In the 'Scheduled Tasks Wizard' dialog box, select the C drive partition of server A and specify the storage location of the image file as 'rtj.tib in the CPCW shared folder'. Here to note: 'Mirror mode' to select 'Append changes incrementally to the existing archive' item, which is an incremental backup.
Then specify the tiering mode, compression ratio, etc., and then go to the 'Backup Interval' parameter setting dialog box. Here, the author will perform a remote incremental backup of server A's C drive partition every day. Select the 'Daily' option and click the 'NEXT' button. In the 'Start time' column, set the time to start scheduled backups every day; then go to In the 'User Information' dialog box, enter the password for the administrator account of Server A to be used. Finally, click the 'Finish' button to complete the creation of the backup task. In this way, network management machine B can automatically perform remote incremental backup of server A's C drive partition every day, eliminating the need for manual backup.
The experience of network management The use of ATIES to implement remote backup of disk partitions can indeed facilitate the unified management of usb backup program
files by network administrators. During the setup process, you must pay attention to the following two points: 1. Correctly set the access permissions of server A's network firewall and shared folders so that personnel who perform remote backups on the network can access server A and ensure that backup files are normally stored on shared servers. In the folder; Second, remote backup personnel must have server A's administrator access, otherwise it can not normally install the agent and remote connection server A.
