## A Backup/Restore question

***********************

Hello All,

I hope (one of) you can help me with this issue: we installed Insight Control 6.3 for a customer and we want to use the mxsync-utility for backup-purposes of the Central Management Server (CMS). We cannot find this utlity anywhere.

Anyone who can tell where I can find it, or download? Is it still part of the Insight Control suite?

********************

Just a note: the MXSYNC utility eases the task of synchronizing an Insight software CMS environment that has been restored from backup with the state of the managed resources. This utility can be used to identify potential inconsistencies, recommend corrective actions, and perform most recommended actions.

From Chris:

Mxsync is still available.

<SIM_install_path>\mxsync\bin, for example, C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\mxsync\bin).
