Please let me know how to take backup of instance periodically on Author and Publisher. As i tried Online repository backup on Qa server it is taking more than 8 hours to copy 28 GB file and still not completed.
Is their any way to perform Backup and Restore in effecient way.
Well one method that always works is to shutdown the instance and tar up the entire install directory. That does require some downtime but it pretty much fullproof. Automating process can require some script writiing because you need to make sure that after issuing the stop command you have to make sure the java process actually shuts down.
