 += Template Backup Data Paths =
  
 +I believe communication to board and users is the way to deal with forgotten agreements, deals etc. Communication about backup is a very important part of the backup procedures, and since you should document what you backup, and keep that up to date [[checksprocedure|(see here)]] why not document it on your intranet or wiki and let people check that once in a while. The template below is what I used to communicate what is in the backup **and** what is not. Meaning, if there is a server which is not in the backup, it still should be in the list to clarify that it hasn't been forgotten.
 +
 +== Overview ==
 +So what does everything mean? Most of the things speak for them selves except maybe for these:
 +* Schema
 +** backup frequency, the schema used here is [[wp>​Sarbanes–Oxley_Act]],​ which actually means:
 +*** 1 day a week a full backup
 +*** 6 days a week an incremental backup
 +*** 1 day a month a month backup
 +*** 1 day a year a year backup
 +*** Week full backup is kept for 7 weeks (reused the 8th week)
 +*** Month full backup is kept for 11 months (reused the 12th month)
 +*** Year backup is never reused and kept for always
 +* Disk: Backup is made first to disk
 +* Tape: Backup is also made to tape
 +* Tape Combi: It does not matter if data is mixed with other data on the same tape

 +| | | mailserver | gw1 | | Sarbanes Oxley | Ja | Ja | Ja | Groupwise - should be backed through agent - restore is unsure |
 +| | | ftpbox | | | | | | | No backup required |
 +
 +Note: 
 +* Customer data is not mixed with company data
 +* Really important data paths are also determined in for example a ticketing system (#0000156)
 +* Oracle live database is left out (/​var/​data/​oracle),​ instead the dump directory (/​var/​backup) is in the backup
 +* There is no license for the groupwise agent, so the restore of the mail can't be guaranteed
