Database archiving

Database archiving is an important system task. If the database becomes full, the system will fail. From the Database Archiving Job system task, users with enterprise administrator or system administrator permissions can see the current size of databases and execute the archiving job as needed. A warning displays on the
BlackBerry AtHoc
homepage when the database size reaches 90% of capacity.

    BlackBerry AtHoc
    management system as an administrator.

    If archiving needs to be performed, a status message appears at the top of the Database Archiving screen.
  5. Review the details on the
    Database Archiving
    screen to determine which database or databases will be archived. You can do this by comparing the current size of each database against the maximum size allowed. If previous archiving jobs have been run, details of those jobs appear in the History table below the Database Status table.
