Configuration Backup

You can back up and restore the DDC configuration by using the Backup/Restore functionality available in CipherTrust Manager. Such a backup will include the following elements:

  • Data Stores

  • Branch Locations

  • Classification Profiles

  • Infotypes

  • Report definitions

This backup will not include the information about the scan executions.

Creating/Restoring the Configuration Backup

To create or restore a backup of your DDC configuration:

  1. Log in to CipherTrust Manager.

  2. Click the Admin Settings link on the dashboard.

  3. Select Backups from the sidebar on the left. This will display the Backups screen.

  4. To create a backup of your DDC configuration, click the Create Backup button.

  5. To restore your DDC configuration from a backup, click the Upload Backup button.

For more details refer to these sections of the CipherTrust Manager documentation:

Configuration Backup Limitations

  • The configuration backup references the DDC Active Node. Restoring the backup to a different CipherTrust Manager cluster leaves DDC referencing an invalid node, and therefore without any valid active node.

  • The configuration backup contains the definition of the DDC resources (such as the Scan or Data Store definitions). Restoring from a backup that does not contain a certain resource (for example, a Custom Classification Profile) or a resource version after a scan had been completed causes a TDP scan execution data to point to an invalid resource identifier.

    If you generate a report that points to the missing resource you may display incomplete data (such as not being able to display the resource name) and/or fail.

Creating/Restoring Backup of Scan Executions

To back up or restore the your Data Discovery and Classification scan executions data you need to access the DDC data stored in Hadoop. For details, refer to the Thales Data Platform Hadoop Backup section in the Thales Data Platform Administrator Guide.
