1 MODULE 7: BACKUPS

2 Agenda Unidesk Backup Concepts Backing up the MA, MCP and shared Layers Personalization layer backup process Restoring a personalization layer

3 Typical Unidesk Components OS App OS App Pers Management Appliance Contains Config Database Entire VM gets backed up Master CachePoint Maintains copy of all layers, acts are replication hub Desktop CachePoint Has required layers to support desktops and personalization layers

4 Typical Unidesk Components OS App OS App Pers OS App OS Pers

5 Backing Up the MA and MCP MA can be backed up like any other VM (using VM backup tools) MCP has independent disks which traditional tools do not backup. Therefor: – Volume level replication/copies (using SAN tools if available). – Unidesk MA and MCP Backup Utility Run Manually or Scheduled

6 Unidesk MA and MCP Backup Tool MA and MCP should be on the same datastore MA and MCP should be on the same host (if running one command) Must have root password for the ESXi server Win7 or Win Srvr 2008 R2 to run the backup utility VMware PowerCLI 5 (5.1 most current) required Mail Relay for notifications

7 Backup Process for MCP/MA MCP Appliance and shared layers are backed up Utility does NOT backup personalization layers on the MCP Backup does not backup MA/MCP snapshots The VM is shutdown prior to its backup (copy) layers are copied using powershell since VMW backups do not backup independent disks

8 Backups on the disk

9 CONFIGURING AND RUNNING MCP BACKUPS Lab

10 Personalization Layer Backups Backs up ONLY the personalization layer Leverages snapshots to minimize backup space Automated backup time set at the desktop level (via template or manually) Retention Policy set globally Personalization layer automated backups are NOT required but recommended and can be done manually also

11 Personalization Layer Backup Chain

12 Setting the Backup Time Can be set at the desktop Also can inherit from the template

13 Repairing/Restoring Pers Layer Same CachePoint or different CachePoint Clear/Wipe the pers layer Restore Apps/Settings or data, or Both

14 CONFIGURING AND RUNNING BACKUPS Lab

15 Splitting up the backups Split load up by CachePoint or Time – If running all backups simultaneously split up the archive tier for each CP to its own data store or – Set the desktops on specific datastores (CPs) to backup at specific times of the day

16 Splitting backups by time Pers

17 Splitting backups by datastore Pers

18 Questions you may see again Automated personalization layer backup times are set where? Is the backup retention policy global or can it be set per desktop? The archive tier for personalization layers is set per desktop, per CP, or per MA? Can you use a standard VM backup tool to backup the MCP and MA?
