You can view database backups currently stored in the system, and you can perform certain actions on them.
To view the existing backups, go to the Database Instance screen (Services > EXASolution and click the database instance), and click Backups.
The Database Backup List screen opens:
The currently-stored backups are listed with the following information:
|Database||Name of the database instance.|
|Backup ID||A unique identifier of the backup.|
|Volume||The volume name that the backup is stored on.|
EXASolution provides some flexibility with backup levels:
|Timestamp||The date and time the backup was created.|
|Expiration||The expiration date of the backup.|
|Usage (GiB)||The size of the backup in GiB.|
|Increment||The increment of the backup over the last full backup.|
|Status||The status of the backup.|
|Change the expiration date of a backup||
Change the date shown in the Expiration Date field, and click Apply.
|View expired backups||
Select Show expired Backups and click Refresh.
|Delete a backup||
Select the backup(s) to be deleted and click Delete.
|Delete unusable backups||
Select Delete unusable backups.
Unusable backups - for example, expired backups or incremental backups to backups that are no longer stored - are deleted to clear up space.
|View foreign backups||Select Show foreign database backups to show backups stored on remote servers.|
