Introduction

This iApp allows users to schedule backups in the GUI. The iApp will update a file in /etc/cron.d/ with the appropriate cron parameters depending on user needs. It does require a little work on the system:

  • In /shared/, create /shared/backups, /shared/backups/bin and /shared/backups/archives directories
  • Drop the f5backup.sh script (attached below along with the iApp) in the /shared/backups/bin directory you just created and make it executable. The script has been modified for tmsh, but is originally posted here in the Advanced Design and Configuration Wiki

We have successfully deployed this option and wanted to say thanks for making it very easy. Does this particular iApp template overwrite old archives or should storage monitoring become a concern?

When this job runs does it set the private keys to "include"?
