Backing up repository data

Backing up repository data provides the security of knowing your data is recoverable if loss or corruption occurs.

Data that is backed up includes all data in ANALYSIS, ENVIRON, and STATS data groups.

BMC recommends that you back up repositories daily during a period of no activity. You can back up repositories by using the following methods:

  • Schedule repository backups to occur automatically (recommended)

  • Use the BMC backup batch utility

  • Use any standard VSAM backup and restore utility


If you use a standard VSAM utility, updates to repositories are not permitted while the utility executes; access must be controlled manually.
