How do you ”force” a backup of HP-Synchronizer database?
Question ID: 107722

I know that HP-Synchronizer makes "automatic backups" of the Postgres database every eight hours, but we want to explicitly make a full backup RIGHT NOW.

How do we do that?

Yes, you can manually backup the Synchronizer database to a backup file.

To backup the Synchronizer database to a backup file:
1 Open the Windows command prompt by clicking Start > Run and typing cmd. Click OK.

2 Navigate to the bin directory, and run the following command line:

**backup_data.bat < path >< backup filename >**

where < path > is the path (with trailing backslash) for where the file will be written, and < backup filename > is the backup file you want to make. By default (no path specified),

The MANUALLY created Synchronizer backup files are located in the bin directory on the Synchronizer server (but you can move them into the ''backup'' folder).

Thanks, I had to ask HP Support for the Postgres password, but it worked.
