You can back up a Horizon Mirage server or the Management server. Server state backup involves the backup of all storage volumes and the database.

Important

Configure your server backup software to stop the Horizon Mirage server cluster and the Management server during the snapshot and database backup time. Back up the SIS and the database using a point-in-time representation so that the backup is consistent across all the volumes and the database.

Contact VMware Support for assistance with this procedure.

Copy the Horizon Mirage storage volumes to the backup location, preferably through a snapshot mechanism, and also back up the database.

If storage snapshots are not used, verify that the Horizon Mirage servers and the Management server are stopped for the full duration of the backup.
