Re: Reboot !!

Shalom,

You don't need to back any files up for a simple reboot.

If you are rebooting because you changed stuff, you want to run an Ignite make_tape_recovery or make_net_recovery BEFORE your changes to insure you can back out.

Re: Reboot !!

This is just for precaution however what are the files you need to back up is depends on the activity which you did on the server

Re: Reboot !!

You should already be backing up your server on a regular basis. You should be using Ignite/UX for your VG00 data and some other backup utility for all other data on the system.

If all this is in place, there should be no need for a special backup just because you are rebooting the server.
