- [Voiceover] The Backup tool in Vault server…is used both to restore files…and for upgrading moving server hardware.…The backups not only roll up all the files…that have been moved to Vault,…but also the information about the files…and the permissions.…Let's back up our Vault now, so under Tools,…in the Autodesk Data Management Server Console,…just click Backup.…All it needs is a Backup Path,…so let's put it on the Desktop…in, maybe, a folder called vault backups…and I'll click OK,…and all we have to do is hit OK,…and it will backup all the Vaults,…all the permissions, and all the files,…so the entire Vault server will be backed up.…
Now that we've backed up the Vault,…let's show how to restore it.…All I have to do, I'm gonna Delete…some of these Vaults.…I'll Delete FIRE.…This really isn't for the faint of heart.…I'm Deleting my Vaults and all the files that go with them,…so this is quite a scary idea,…but I really trust my backup,…so I'm OK to Delete all these Vaults.…Let's restore it now.…Under Tools,…Restore,…I'll say Yes.…
This course concentrates on the administrative side of Vault Basic. Gordon Luckett shows how to install a Vault server on a central Windows Server, and install the Vault Basic client on a computer with AutoCAD. The server and client are used to track how AutoCAD DWG and other non-CAD files are added, searched, and checked in and out of Vault. Gordon also covers autoloading files to Vault, and backing up and restoring the system. The final chapter covers the premium features in Vault Professional, such as categories, rules, and revisions.
