Avaya IP Office Server Edition Backup Settings

IP Office Server Edition Backup

Often, we get questions from customers on how to do a backup to Server Edition.  It is pretty easy, but most commonly I am finding that people are trying to save the Primary servers backup on the secondary and vice-a-verse.

Get Fingerprint Info!

IMPORTANT! If you might be restoring the backup to different server hardware, it is vital to get the fingerprint/UUID information with these 2 commands per Avaya’s documentation:

ipoffice get_fingerparms 2>&1 | grep “^FP_”

ipoffice get_fingerprint

As you can see by the above table, we need to assign every feature we want to use, to it’s very own DID number.  Once set up, you just call that number to activate the feature.  For instance, to turn o Twinning, you would dial 513-555-1017, from the phone number that is set up for mobile twinning….soo lets look at the IP Office side of things.
