System Backup

This is typically something the installing customer does:

1. Perform a system backup of the following Servers

If the Redcell Synergy upgrade of the server(s) is not successful, a full system restore will be required. This backup ensures that the system is consistent before any upgrade or patching. Therefore a full system backup is important for each server before the Redcell software upgrade or patching exercise.

Servers:
