Back up the server configuration

After setting up the server or making changes to the configuration, it is a good practice to make a complete backup of the server configuration.

Make sure that you create backups for the following server components:
  • Management processor

    You can back up the management processor configuration through the Lenovo XClarity Controller interface. For details about backing up the management processor configuration, see:

    Backing up the BMC configuration section in the XCC documentation compatible with your server at Lenovo XClarity Controller portal page.

    Alternatively, you can use the save command from Lenovo XClarity Essentials OneCLI to create a backup of all configuration settings. For more information about the save command, see:

    the Lenovo XClarity Essentials save command

  • Operating system

    Use your backup methods to back up the operating system and user data for the server.
