BO4 - Dynamic biar file backups?


We have a folder and whilst can create and schedule a biar fiel abckup of this, belivee this will only backup the contents to .biar which existed at the time the biar job was created.

What ideally want is to have a scheduled biar job which exports the content of this folder daily to .biar including any reports which were added to it since .biar job created otherwise would need to crate a new job each time reports added to folder.

Is this possible?

Using bo4 sp6.

We have our cms + frs backups in addition to this but the abopve would make restoring indvidual reports easier.

    Hi Philip,

    Let us have a look at automating the BIAR backup using BIAR engine.

    The downside here is that you should query your Public folders SI_ID using Query builder and use it in your *.properties file of auomation script.

    Using promotion management, you can schedule the job. It should pick up the objects newly added. I had an issue while we were in SP4, i could not schedule it via promotion management. SAP also acknowledge that this is a bug. Expected to fix in SP6. But i have not tested the fix.

    or you can use the method as Mani mentioned above.
